Sandankyo is a ravine located in Akiota-cho, Yamagata-gun. Visitor numbers started to grow in the mid-Taisho era when it received the spotlight as a scenic place. Inns were built, infrastructure was improved, and in 1925 the national government designated Sandankyo as a Place of Scenic Beauty under the Historical Sites, Places of Scenic Beauty, and Natural Monuments Preservation Law. This footage was recorded two years after the designation, and shows Sandankyo in its early days as a tourist destination. The film records such features as the rope bridge, ferryboats, Sarutobi-iwa Cliffs, and a gushing double waterfall.
