Kumano Kodo, Japan - Our first lodging experience on our trek was in Koyo-San at the Jokiin Buddhist Temple Lodge where we discovered a Japanese heated low table known as a kotatsu. The futon covers the open sides of the table to trap the heat from an electric heating element underneath the table to keep your feet and legs warm.
