Filmed in the early Showa era by Daikichi Nakano
Hijiyama Park, Minami Ward, Hiroshima City, and other locations
Gobinden was a building on Hijiyama, a small hill with a panoramic view of Hiroshima City. It was a rest house built for Emperor Meiji originally on the Western Drill Ground (area near today’s Moto-machi, Naka Ward) during the First Sino-Japanese War. The building was later moved to Hijiyama, where it became a local tourist attraction rivaling the former Imperial Headquarters at Hiroshima Castle. The large tiled roof in the footage belonged to a structure built over the Gobinden to protect it from the elements. Gobinden itself contained photographs of the emperor, and items such as chairs and rugs. In front of the Gobinden was a large torii gate, a bronze statue representing a sacred horse, and stone lanterns. Gobinden was destroyed by the atomic bomb, and the surviving pair of stone lanterns were moved elsewhere. The site was cleared to become the large open space that it is today. The footage records the neighborhood of Kajiya-cho (today’s Honkawa-cho, Naka Ward) where the recorder used to live. It shows children of relatives playing traditional Japanese games, and scenes filmed at Gobinden, Hiroshima Toshogu Shrine, and Tsuruhane Shrine. The children appear to be dressed up for New Year’s, and the types of games played by the children also indicate that the footage was filmed around New Year’s.
