Warm you up in Kotatsu

How do you let you warm up during winter? 

Do you use a heater? 

In addition to a heater, we use "Kotatsu" to feel warm and comfortable during the cold season. 

A Kotatsu is a low, wooden table frame covered by a heavy blanket futon, upon which a table top sits. 

Underneath is a heat source, formerly a charcoal brazier but now electric, often built into the table itself.

Kotatsu is used almost exclusively in Japan.

Kotatsu is usually placed in front of TV in a living room.

Some tangerines are on a Kotatsu and some cats are staying underneath; which is a traditional image of Japanese winter.

It definitely makes you feel warm and sleepy.

However, we need to be careful because it is easy to get low-temperature burn.

Therefore, don't fall asleep in a Kotatsu for long hours!!

Anyway, it is the best place to relax at home.

Well, why don't you ask your Japanese friend and try Kotatsu in the winter?
