Additional Details:
"Kamakura" is the festival observed on February 15 and 16 every year in Yokote City in snowy Akita Prefecture. A snow hut, which is also called "kamakura" and is dedicated to the God of Water, is made here and there in the city, and children play house and eat in it sitting around a charcoal brazier. When evening comes, these snow huts, with lighted candles inside, present a world of fantasy.
