Kodo Elementary School was a private kindergarten and primary school adopting the then progressive notion of coeducation, and class sizes of up to 40 pupils, with just one class per grade. The three-story modern school building in the footage was built in 1924. It was the first reinforced concrete school building west of Kobe. The film is one of several that record various school events, such as sports day, as well as everyday scenes, filmed by a parent of a Kodo Elementary pupil in response to a request by the school. The films were also occasionally screened at the school assembly hall, with the blackout curtains drawn. This footage compresses the school life of the recorder’s son—covering his five years from grade 2 to 6—into a total duration of 5 minutes and 45 seconds. Kodo Elementary School closed on November 11, 1945, after most of the community that supported the school was devastated by the atomic bombing.
