Tojo-cho, Shobara City
Taishakukyo (also known as Taishaku Valley or Gorge) is a ravine visited since ancient times as a place of scenic beauty and worship. It stretches from what is today Tojo-cho, Shobara City, to Jinsekikogen-cho, Jinseki-gun. In 1923 it was designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty by the national government under the Historical Sites, Places of Scenic Beauty, and Natural Monuments Preservation Law. The footage, recorded by a Hiroshima City resident, shows Taishakukyo after its tourism was given a boost by the designation. Recorded are the long-established inn Kadoya, which is still in business today, the arched bridge in front of the inn, signs that read “Car boarding point,” “Sai-no-Kawara Cavern”, and “Designated Place of Scenic Beauty, the Home Ministry,” bonnet buses, and excursion boats.
