Yokote Kamakura

16th February 2018

During this festival, igloo-like snow houses called "kamakura" and snow sculptures can be found throughout the city of Yokote. The kamakura found at Yokote Castle probably provide the most appeal aesthetically, but there are plenty found within the streets which festival-goers may enter to be served sweet rice wine and rice cakes cooked on a traditional charcoal grill. Of course, like many other festivals in Japan, there are also food stalls set up where you can enjoy various food and drink customary to the region and Japan.
