Are they the same thing?
Well, not really. But hibachi has become a common name for charcoal grill.
Hibachi actually means a central heating source in the house whereas shichirin is a charcoal cooking stove, and sometimes they did look very similar. It was thought the word shichirin was too difficult for English speakers to say so hibachi was adopted as a pronounceable replacement. But in the spirit of respectfully acknowledging correct language usage, we’d like to call it like it is, shichirin.
