Fukuya Department Store opened in Hacchobori in 1929, and expanded in sync with Hacchobori’s growth as a commercial district. On April 1, 1938, the department store opened a new annex—with eight floors above ground, two floors below, and year-round air conditioning—on the south side of the same street. This film records the annex during construction in 1937, and after it opened for business on April 1, 1938. The footage shows the busy neighborhood of Fukuya and Kinzagai Street, the sales floors of the department store, the original Fukuya building on the opposite side of the road, the new annex under construction, the seven-storied new annex of the Chugoku Shimbun building to the east, and busy traffic of trams and automobiles. The National Mobilization Law was promulgated on the very day Fukuya’s new annex opened. Today the building, after undergoing numerous renovations, continues to house the Fukuya Department Store.
