ひろしま戦前の風景 10「広島城の花見」

撮影:大宮忠美氏 中区基町

Filmed circa 1936 (Showa 11) by Tadami Omiya
Moto-machi, Naka Ward
The footage is thought to date from around the spring of 1936, because it includes a view of a near-complete Hiroshima Chamber of Commerce and Industry building, and also because of the shape of Aioi Bridge. Hiroshima Castle during the Meiji era housed the Imperial Headquarters, where the emperor commanded his army, and in the Showa era the facility was opened to the public as a memorial museum. The footage shows people enjoying cherry blossoms in front of the former Imperial Headquarters, Sakuranoike Pond, and Hiroshima Castle Tower, which was a National Treasure. Hiroshima Castle Tower was destroyed by the atomic bombing but was rebuilt after the war. Only the foundation stones of the Imperial Headquarters and Sakuranoike Pond remain today.
