Japanese village



At the beginning of the film, at a distance of about one-hundred feet, is a two-story building with a balcony, some tropical plants, and a telephone pole. A young Japanese man appears directly in front of the camera. He is accompanied by two small Japanese boys attired in tight knee britches and rather loose sleeved blouses. The three of them exhibit their gymnastic powers by performing back handsprings, back flips, unusual handstands, etc. There are two spectators in Occidental clothing. Nothing shown in the film indicates Japanese surroundings.
