Hibachi, Braziers 火鉢 




quote
The hibachi (火鉢, "fire bowl") is a traditional Japanese heating device. It consists of a round, cylindrical or a box-shaped open-topped container, made from or lined with a heatproof material and designed to hold burning charcoal.

In North America, the term "hibachi" is used to refer to a small cooking stove heated by charcoal (actually called shichirin in Japanese), or to an iron hot plate (teppan) used in Teppanyaki restaurants.

Although the word is Japanese and the device is strongly associated with Japan, the hibachi originated in China as a type of portable charcoal brazier used to heat the homes of the nobility. It is not known when the hibachi was first used in Japan; however written records suggest that it was used by the Heian period (798-1185AD). Owing to the low availability of metal in China and Japan, early hibachis were made from dug-out cypress wood lined with clay.

Traditional hibachis can be very attractive objects in themselves and are today sometimes sold as antiques.

frost has come,
but a wild pink blossom
on the wooden brazier

after the frost comes
a pink blossom remains on
the wooden brazier

Written in the winter of 1690 元禄3年冬。

This is an allusion to the waka by
. Fujiwara no Teika 藤原定家 .

霜さゆるあしたの原の冬枯れにひと花咲ける大和撫子

On a day with frost there is just one flower blossoming in the winter-withered field -
a Yamato Nadeshiko.
