A Japanese zabuton is a large, usually square-shaped cushion used to sit or kneel on the floor. It brings support when sitting crossed-legged and is designed to avoiding any pressure on your ankles and knees. It is traditionally used to sit on the floor, to enjoy the warmth of a kotatsu table for instance. You will also need zabuton cushions for meditation.
