Following the birth of Emperor Showa’s first son in 1933, celebrations were held in many parts of the country during 1934. Filmed during one such event in central Hiroshima City, the footage shows a fancy-dress parade, dance performances, a crowded Hon-dori Shopping Street, and a flower-decked tram passing the old Fukuya Department Store building, conveying the enthusiastic, celebratory atmosphere. The current Fukuya Department Store building (originally the new annex) was yet to be built.
