Tests are coming up, I'm trying to make homework, study and work on my speaking test all together but I'm struggling to keep going. Honestly, I'm surprised my add hasn't been an issue sooner... And even then I'm still forcing myself to do something, which is somewhat surprising.
Guess I'm really motivated to do this XD.

This may sound like a really dumb question, but:
Under the Japanese calendar, the current year is Heisei 29, if I'm not mistaken. Despite this, should a foreigner visiting the country just assume any local person would know what he's talking about if he were to say "2017"? Is it plausible that he might encounter someone who didn't know what he meant?

https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

People will almost certainly know. I do actually get the impression that people are using the era calendar less and less. It might have something to do with globalisation, and the adaptation to the rest of the world. But I guess it's also that it's hard to talk about the future. For instance there's a Shinkansen line going to be built with a scheduled completion in 2045. Referring to that as 'Heisei 57' is rather curious, especially now that it's been all but decided that the next year will be the last of the Heisei era.

Most people will use the Gregorian calendar, except in formal or official contexts. So people will understand you - as long as you speak Japanese, that is. But 2017年 is not gonna confuse anyone.
"Jo mere uenig du er med nogen, jo pænere skal du tale til dem. Tal om indholdet. Brug tid på indholdet. Forhold dig til det, der diskuteres. Lyt til, hvad der bliver sagt, i stedet for hvem der siger det. Hvis vi skal gøre det her med demokratiet bedre, så starter vi der."

人生は苦痛ですか 成功が全てですか
僕はあなたにあなたに ただ逢いたいだけ
信じたい嘘 効かない薬 帰れないサヨナラ

I'm also pretty sure they use the Gregorian calendar in anime. One example is Psycho-Pass, pretty sure they used ~2114. Macross Frontier also is in year 2034 (I think!).

The majority of Japan goes by the Gregorian calendar so they'll definitely understand what you're talking about.

Hopefully, this should be the last question for a while (and I'm sorry, but I have this unlucky knack for typing in questions on search engines like Google and Bing and then *not* being able to find an answer no matter how I rephrase it; if it's any consolation at all, this question being answered will be of great help as I write my next fanfic story, provided that the answer is the one I'm hoping for).
Does the information stated on Japanese Drivers Licenses include height?
