The footage shows a family visiting Nigitsu Shrine near Hiroshima Station. Nigitsu Shrine originated in the Edo period, initially to house the ancestral spirit tablets of the Asano clan, lords of the Hiroshima domain. During the Meiji era it was renamed Nigitsu Shrine, and became a locally popular cherry blossom viewing spot by the time this film was made. All of the wooden structures, including the main hall, were lost in the atomic bombing. Most have been rebuilt today to resemble their pre-war conditions. The arched bridge and subsequent scenes were probably filmed at nearby Tsuruhane Shrine.
