Obscure and Not-So-Obscure Japanese History

From my grandmother's stamp collection:

1922-Boy Scouts of Japan is established

1927-The first subway line begins operations in Japan, a private company enterprise running from Ueno to Asakusa

1928-Radio physical exercises (rajio taiso) begin, a series of exercise routines accompanied to music aired several times a day on the radio

1946-Women's suffrage granted
