People in Yokote are friendly to the max.
Having experienced the Kamakura Festival in February, where igloo structures are made and everyone is welcome to sit pay homage to the god of water, and then to enjoy the company of the locals and drink. We were also welcomed into homes and served tea, red bean sweets, and handmade pickles by the locals. Make sure to try the Yokote Yakisoba, which is topped off with an egg.
