Filmed circa 1940 (Showa 15) by Shuzo Ikemori
Takaya-cho Shiraichi, Higashihiroshima City
Shiraichi district of Takaya-cho, Higashihiroshima City, had thrived since pre-modern times as a castle town. Back in the days this film was made, Shiraichi hosted an annual horse and cattle market in late May. The footage records Shiraichi on one such busy fair day, with a festival procession of local children, stalls of cotton candy and pinwheels, and sideshows. According to an old-timer who saw the footage, “There would be traveling circus troupes and all sorts of people arriving from east and west. At school we couldn’t concentrate on our lessons. The din was such that we could hardly hear what the teacher was saying.”
