Hello this is masa at Shibuya Business Garden.

Using a kotatsu is a unique way of heating a home in Japan.
It's a low table with an electric heater attached to the underside.

People place it on a quilted mat and cover it with a blanket or
quilt to keep the heat in.

They then put a square board on top of it so that it can be used
as a table.

Many Japanese like kotatsu because they use far less energy than
other heating devices and it's especially relaxing to lie with one's legs
outstretched under the warmth they radiate.
