Japanese reki-jo (History Girls)
June 6, 2010

Lots of girls in Japan are going crazy for HISTORY! It’s the hottest new thing to do! Girls who go to historic sites, museums, historic bookstores and theme parks that feature battle re-enactments, are called reki-jo, or History Girls. Cool right?

From dressing up like these heroes from thousands of years ago, to carrying swords and learning to fight like them, girls in Japan are feeling the power of their historical figures.

Do you like to learn about history? Are there any heroes in history who inspire you?
