mediaevalist: (Default)
I read on SCAtoday.net that there's a mediaeval re-enactment group in Japan: Avalon. When I scanned the headline, I thought it was another group in Japan dedicated to re-enactment of Japan's native feudal period. I never thought there would be interest in re-enactment of the European mediaeval period.

I should have known better. Many Japanese are just as fascinated with various periods of European history just as much as certain groups of Westerners are with Japanese history, certainly enough to permeate some of its own popular culture (Most notably manga and anime that's usually based on it).
