Wednesday Word: Kotatsu

Kotatsu - noun

A kotatsu is the evolution of hearth and heating used in Japan. It consists of a futon placed over a frame and is an inexpensive way to heat an area. Modern versions are electric, although the more traditional kind features a futon and frame over a small recess of coals.
