The footage shows a hiking party walking from Mitaki Station (on the National Railway Kabe Line) to Mitakidera Temple, and climbing the stone steps of the temple to the Yomei Waterfall area at the top for a picnic. According to one of the participants, residents of Hon-dori, both adults and children, often took part in such leisure activities, and excursions to places like Hijiyama and Miyajima were common. The film was recorded during a summer trip to Mitaki, which the participant recalls as involving steep uphill walks.
