Filmed circa 1937 (Showa 12) by Tamizo Ogawa
Tsuchido, Onomichi City, and other locations
The footage records family members strolling and picnicking under cherry blossoms in their prime. The family had travelled on the Onomichi Railway from Jogakkomae Station (Kuriharahigashi, Onomichi City) to Ichi Station (Mitsugi-cho, Onomichi City). The Onomichi Railway service between Onomichi and Mitsugi-cho Stations commenced in the late Taisho era, with ambitious plans to extend the service further north, eventually all the way to Shimane Prefecture. The line was the only public transportation available in the area at the time this film was made, but was superseded by extended bus services after the war, and closed in 1964.
