How would one write a range of dates in vertical format? For instance, 2017-18 or 2017-2018.

I've tried looking for the proper way of writing date ranges vertically in Japanese but haven't found any specific ones, but if you're going to express just the year then you could write:

2
0
1
7

1
2

3
0

1
8

5

See here (in Japanese).

  • Just leave out the month 月 and day 日 if you they're not necessary. – keithmaxx Oct 26 '17 at 8:53

There are several ways to write it (See this post for detail), but I personally usually write like...

  • 縦のまっすぐの線(こんなやつの縦版 →「ー」)のいいのがワードでみつからないんですけど・・ – Chocolate Oct 26 '17 at 10:09
  • どうもありがとうございます I am also curious about if the year range was printed in a Japanese magazine, would they use this same format with kanji numbers for vertical format. Would there be the same sort of separation for [ ~ ]? – Rowan Elise Oct 30 '17 at 18:25
