One of the best things about winter in Japan is sitting with your legs in the kotatsu, a low table with a heater inside that’s one of the best ways of keeping warm during the colder months. Japanese homes generally lack central heating, and a kotatsu provides an awesome place for the family to gather and keep warm while they eat mikan oranges or watch TV. To use a kotatsu, place a blanket (futon) over the table and put the tabletop piece top of that, then turn on the switch and enjoy toasty warmth wafting up while you sit with your legs inside. J-List customers have regularly asked us to carry these kotatsu tables again this year, and we’re happy to announce we’ve got limited stock of Japanese kotatsu tables on the site now. Shipping is still difficult — we recommend seamail since EMS is so pricey, but the option is there for you.
Kotatsus have returned to J-List. Anime girls sold separately.
