Do you know KOTATSU(こたつ) ~Japanese Tradition~

KOTATSU(こたつ) is a unique heater used frequetly in Japan.

Kotatsu is a low table covered by a futon, or heavy blanket. Underneath is a heat source, often built into the table itself. People put their legs under the table and is very comfortable and cozy!

Japanese usually use this in the season of fall to winter. In Tokyo it is getting warmer but in Akita, Kotatsu is still necessary!!!
