TOKYO - A jeweler in Tokyo's Ginza shopping district on Wednesday put on sale a 100 million yen ($838,466 or P37.5 million) platinum-based calendar for 2015 featuring scenes from the hit Disney movie "Frozen."

The calendar is displayed at the flagship store of Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewelry K.K., a unit of Tanaka Holdings Co. The jeweler, which has sold gold calendars every year since 2006, used platinum this time to recreate the snow world of the animation movie.

The 1.2-meter tall, 87-centimeter wide set including a frame and a pedestal is made from roughly 10 kilograms of pure platinum. On the back of the calendar are printed images of characters from the movie, which is this year's box-office winner in Japan.

Tanaka Kikinzoku will display the calendar in Ginza until Sunday and later put it on display at other outlets nationwide. It will take orders until the end of next March.
