If you’re anything like me, you love learning random facts. I’m the type who will read a list of 100 facts and be interested in every single one. I’m also the type of person who, if I’m reading a book, will stop to look up every word I don’t know. So, when I came across this blog post about Masako Katsura, a Japanese woman with an eidetic memory, I knew I had to share it. Katsura can remember every single detail of her life since she was born. She can even remember what she wore on specific days and what she ate for meals. While this may seem like a gift, it’s also led to some challenges for Katsura. She often has trouble sleeping because her mind won’t shut off, and she constantly relives memories. However, she’s found ways to cope and still enjoys sharing her story with others. Read on to learn more about Masako Katsura and her extraordinary memory.
