Yokota was home station for me from 1975 - 1977 and I have great memories of that period in time, chief among which is the fact Tokyo is where The Second Mrs. Pennington and I met and fell in love/lust. It can be colder than the proverbial well-digger's ass at Yokota in January and through the majik o' these here inter-tubes I see the low on 01/31 was 21 degrees. That would have made for a brisk early morning walk from TSMP's apartment to the train station, were I still living in Former Happy Days.
I can almost smell it.
