A mortar placed upside down topped with a kitchen cutting board turned into a special altar for the event. Above the altar, mochi rice cakes in red and white colors, and gohei, strips of white papers were decorated. This was also a day for people to start using heating devices such as kotatsu foot heaters or braziers. People used to believe that if these heating devises are used on a day of boar, they won’t cause a fire. In case the family missed the date, they had to wait until the next boar day to start using their heating devises.
Variety of designs and materials exist for these devices to cater to the different need of users. You may be surprised to learn a unique way of using a heating device.
Please explore the world of Japanese traditional heating devices which warms your body and heart up!
