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?
