Inokuchi Beach was a popular picture-postcard spot until the end of the Meiji era, famous for the reefs of Kogoijima, and for the pair of islands Otokomyojin and Onnamyojin. However, one of the pair, Onnamyojin, disappeared completely as a result of the 1924 arrival of the Miyajima Line operated by Hiroshima Gasudenki (today’s Hiroshima Electric Railway), which ran parallel to the National Railway Sanyo Main Line, and the opening in 1933 of a seafront road for tourist traffic. This footage records the pair of islands shortly before Onnamyojin disappeared entirely, along with a Sanyo Main Line steam locomotive and Miyajima Line tram. The remaining Otokomyojin also ceased to be an island in 1982 as a result of a major reclamation project in the surrounding area. The former island, now 1 km inland, is indicated today by a plaque bearing the legend “Kogoijima Island,” found within Seibu Umetate Daini Park.
