Back in the day and for a good while, Japanese apartments and houses had no central heating. This causes problems during winter, as you can imagine.
Thus enters the kotatsu. It's a very efficient form of space heater in that it heats a small, well-insulated area and doesn't waste its energy heating tons of air in the room that will just float away.
