The Hibachi is a static decor item from the Zen Set that can be purchased for 1,200 Bells. It can be sold for 300 Bells at Re-Tail (240 Bells at Nooklings). Despite being a static decor item, it will produce the sound of a crackling flame when in a room.
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. The hibachi was once a common sight in Japan before the Second World War, and was often seen in waiting rooms at train stations, but it became a rarity and was gradually replaced by the oil heaters now commonplace in Japan. (Central heating is relatively rare in Japanese homes.) Hibachis remain in use in some traditional settings, such as tea ceremony, older stores, and outdoor festivals in winter, such as setsubun.
