The group had close links to the Kobe-based 'Koha Society' and there are several contributions by members of that group. The term bunka (lit. cultural) was an alternative term to geijutsu shashin and used in the sense of 'artistic' or 'contemporary' at that time. This magazine was intended to be a monthly publication where contributions by amateur photographers from the whole of Japan would be ranked according to their aesthetic values. The first prize in this issue went to Kono Kiyoka from Kyoto. Very rare. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
