Kotatsu is one of the most amazing Japanese inventions, which is appreciated especially during long and cold  winter evenings.

And what exactly is kotatsu?

It’s a small table with short legs, and underneath it there’s a heating source. After we put our legs under kotatsu, we can cover them with additional blanket.

For some people kotatsu is like a black hole: it sucks you in and does not let go, because it’s so comfy inside 🙂
