Naka oki is a variation of Usucha Hakobi (and Koicha Hakobi?) suitable for October in which the Furo is positioned in the center of the tatami so that guests are closer to the source of heat than they would be in the warmer months of Furo season. A tall, narrow Mizusashi is placed to the left of the Furo.

Shifuku is placed between futaoki and guest for koicha
