Kabe Elementary School was founded in 1874 under the name Seibisha. In the academic year 1926 when this film was made, it was a combined six-year jinjo and two-year koto elementary school, with a total of 400 students across eight grades, with one class per grade. Kabe district hosted its first sports day, held jointly by nine elementary schools, in 1887. Subsequently, schools gradually shifted to holding sports days on their own, or with fewer other schools. The sports day increasingly became a major event not just for the school but also for members of the local community hosting the school.
