Yokote City celebrates a snow festival in February with hundreds of igloo-like snow houses (kamakura) built throughout the city. A mound of snow is carved out to create a room, in which candles are lit and a charcoal brazier (hibachi) is set up to grill rice cakes. Passers-by are invited by the children to come inside and drink some sweet rice brew (amazake). The festival has 400 years of history and is dedicated to the gods of water.
