The "Kotatsu" is a small table with an electric heater underneath.
A Kotatsu futon is placed over the frame of the Kotatsu to keep the heat in. This Kotatsu futon drapes down to the floor.
The tabletop is then put on the frame over the Kotatsu futon to keep it in place.
In Japan, the Kotatsu is often the center of domestic life during the winter months. In the evening family members gather around the Kotatsu to enjoy food, television, game play and conversation, keeping their bottom half warm under the Kotatsu. Once under the Kotatsu, all of your worries slip away as a familiar warmth takes over and you become completely relaxed.
Please call us with any questions or if you need help selecting your Kotatsu Futon.
