You don't see it very often these days but the table, heater, and blanket combo called the kotatsu used to be the main way Japanese families dealt with winter and continued to be so even after the invention of central heating because, and this is hard to believe, central heating isn't always a given in Japan, even in Tokyo! The Choikota Personal Kotatsu is a modern version of the kotatsu, designed for people who live alone or in small apartments, and offers greater versatility since the table part has been shrunk for using in many different ways.
With a tabletop with adjustable height and angle, the Choikota Personal Kotatsu's table can be your desk, gaming platform, dresser for doing your makeup, breakfast tray, or all-purpose utility table. You can even use it as a stand for a book or magazine to read while staying warm. It has five temperature settings (35°C/95°F to 48°C/118.4°F), four timer settings (30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes), and its 100% polyester blanket is 150 cm x 126 cm (4.9 x 4.1 ft), covering most of your body and keeping you warm in bed, on the sofa, or on the floor.
