A kotatsu is a popular furniture in Japan that I haven’t seen elsewhere. It’s a low, table frame covered by a blanket and a table top. Built into the table (or just put under it) is a heat source. When it’s winter and cold, it’s nice to gather around the table for something good to eat while you’re put your legs under the blanket and get warm.
