During the winter, we use a brazier called Ro.
It is placed in the hollow place made under the tatami mat.
In early summer we remove Ro and cover the hollow with a tatami mat, and begin to use another brazier called Furo.
Kama (an iron kettle) and Furo (a brazier)
-- on the left
Furo is set on a board put on the tatami mat.
This is used until early winter.
Mizusashi ( a pitcher ) --on the right
Kakejiku (a hanging scroll)
It is hung on the wall in the alcove.
In typical Japanese rooms
a hanging scroll is
the most important ornament.
This hanging scroll tells that
the comfortable wind
is blowing from the south.
