Abstract

Folklore is a cultural feature that contains the philosophy of community life. The distribution is done orally, so it tends not to be well documented. There are also various versions of the story so that it can develop and have multiple interpretations even though the noble values in folklore can form a cultured generation. Therefore, it needs to be reconstructed and well documented. Folklore as national culture synergizes with regional tourism. Central Java's educational potential is still not growing rapidly. This is in line with the spread of folklore in Central Java which is still limited to certain areas. As technology develops, the spread of folklore reconstruction can be carried out in a more effective manner. Reconstruction of folklore can be a means to develop educational tourism which is currently developing in various regions including Central Java. Education needs to be developed to improve the economy of the people in an area. Natural and tourism resources need to be optimized and redeveloped by introducing folklore in the area. Folklore that develops can increase the attractiveness of tourists to visit. The expected tourism is not only looking for fun, but also learning while traveling.
