 My Cousin showed me  Photos of People in Japan from the 70's using this gesture. Growing up in Tokyo
it is still Done Mostly by Girls theses days. It has fascinated Me how it Drifted from the US in the 60's
to becoming a Common Gesture in Japan even 50 years later.

Yeah, and not just Japan but Korea and China as well in some cases! I looked it up out of curiosity and there seem to be a number of vectors for this gesture to move into Japan, one of which might have been a famous ice skater who was popular during the 1972 Olympics in Sapporo and would often show the peace sign. :D

  And I've been seeing the Return to the US of this Gesture through the interest in Anime.
American Girls are Doing it because they see the Anime Characters using it. Sailor Moon for instance. Full Circle, Kinda Zen isn't it.
