The Yokote Kamakura Festival is an event held to worship the water god during the 14th-16th days of the lunar new year that boasts a tradition of about 450 years. In the snow huts, children serve rice cakes and amaeko (sweet sake) while uttering ”Please come into the snow hut” and ”Please worship the water god”. During the festival period, people talk late into the night in one of the approximately 100 snow huts created in the city while eating rice cakes and drinking sweet sake.(February 13th)
