Kamakura were originally built as places to give offerings to a water deity enshrined in the front and to pray for family safety, commercial success, and a bountiful harvest.
Every year on February 15 and 16, during the time of the Lunar New Year, about 100 kamakura are built throughout Yokote City. During this time, children treat with amazake drinks and mochi rice cakes while saying, "Come into the kamakura."
