Kotatsu (こたつ) hot tables are a popular cost-efficient way to keep warm during Japan’s colder seasons. Integral to household culture, a kotatsu has a low coffee table with a heating element installed underneath. A blanket sits atop the table, then another hard wooden piece over that. This creates a cozy little environment for sitting around, relaxing in warmth whilst you cover yourself with an edge of the kotatsu blanket.
