Gunma prospered as a center of the silk industry during the early modernization of Japan. Gunma boasts the longest average duration of sunlight in Japan, with approximately 5 days per week being clear and sunny; however, the region is also known for its fantastic displays of thunder and lightning during the summer. Maebashi is known to be the "City of Water, Greenery and Poets" because of its pure waters, its rich nature and because it gave birth to several Japanese contemporary poets, such as Sakutaro Hagiwara. Culinary specialties include noodle dishes such as udon and soba, fresh vegetables, poultry and pork dishes and tofu is popular among the locals. Gunma is also famous for its hot springs resorts, such as Kusatsu and Ikaho, which are located in majestic natural settings deep in the mountains.
