Im dying to go on THIS Kotatsu Train!!! A magical train ride in winter wonderland…. Sounds like a dream to me. The Kotatsu train in IWATE prefecture, runs twice a day until the end of March, 2012.  If you’re lucky to be in Japan around this time of year, you have to go and ride on it!  Feel the retro Japan. the beloved kotatsu. You’ll get a special seafood bento & some MIKAN ( mini satsuma orange ) for the ride. What an amazing idea!

If you’re very lucky, Demons from Japanese folklore show up & scare you a bit!

kotatsu is a low coffee table, wooden table frame covered by a futon, or heavy blanket, upon which a table top sits. I always had a Kotatsu every winter when I was growing up in Japan. Kotatsu was the best thing ever during cold months. I miss watching TV in Kotatsu…..

Here’re some modern type of Hello Kitty Kotatsu I found! So kawaii! Check them out:)
