The welcoming committee at the local Yokote train station. The sign says "Welcome to Yokote, the town with kamakura and yakisoba"
On my recent trip to Yokote I tried the local delicacy of Yokote Yakisoba. It is yakisoba with an egg on the top. Tasty ^_^.
As well as for their kamakura snow huts, Yokote is also famous for its special style of yakisoba. I can't find my photo I took when I ate yokote yakisoba for dinner, but here is a pack of corn snacks I bought in yokote yakisoba style.
I have lots more photos of the Yokote trip including some of the Akita Shinkansen and others of the Bonden festival in Yokote. I should have them sorted out soon and will post them also.
