Kotatsu

Kotatsu

In Japan, we don’t have a central heating system. Therefore, each home has its own heating devices.

Kotatsu is one of them. Kotatsu is a low table with an electric heater underneath. It is covered with futon or a thick quilt in order to keep the warmth in. One sits on the floor with the legs under the table.
