A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan.
Often mistakenly referred to as “female samurai”, female warriors have a long history in Japan, beginning long before samurai emerged as a warrior class.


Onna-Bugeisha. Most awesome. 
Edit: Okay, apparently not onna-bugeisha, just a photo of a theatre girl. But still plenty cool. Many thanks, Internet.
