Japanese-style table setting ready for serving mochi (rice cakes) with sweet azuki red bean paste just before New Year (mid-winter). In the background is a Kotatsu - a table with an electric heating element affixed under the table top and covers to keep one's legs warm underneath the table while sitting on the cushions on the floor.
