Ondo-cho, Kure City, and other locations
The footage was probably recorded during a homeward ferry trip from Matsuyama to Hiroshima. It shows Takahama Port, Turner Island, a ferry departure, Ondo-no-Seto (Strait of Ondo), Kiyomori-zuka (Kiyomori Mound), Ondo, Kegoya, and a battleship, destroyer, and light cruiser travelling by. Kiyomori-zuka, a monument standing in the water off Kurahashi-jima Island, is said to have been erected in 1184 to commemorate the achievements of Taira no Kiyomori, who is traditionally believed to have masterminded the project to widen and deepen the strait—an important waterway in the Seto Inland Sea—to allow the passage of trading vessels.
