Like sleep in Japan!

Made to painstaking traditional Japanese specifications by an American manufacturer, the J-Life Shikifuton offers the ultimate comfort of a true shikibuton. This comes with a beautiful removable cover in 100% cotton imported from Japan fabric as pictured.


Years ago, we decided to offer Americans a true Japanese style mattress - one constructed of quality materials, without foam or innersprings, - pure and simple. So, we deconstructed Japanese shikibutons, talked to shikibuton master craftsmen in Japan and developed the design of the J-Life Shikifuton.

True to Japanese custom, our futon is made from pure cotton. The J-Life Shikifuton has no wool, foam or innersprings. The shikifuton mattress uses Boron as a fire retardant.

The custom zippered removable cover fits over the 100% unbleached cotton duck mattress cover. The custom removable cover is made of high quality 100% cotton fabric imported directly from Japan and features traditional patterns.

The J-Life Shikifuton is available in two thicknesses, a four inch and a more traditional 3 inch. (In Japan, new shikibuton are about 3 inches thick. Our more popular 4 inch futon is made to accommodate the larger frames of American sleepers.)

Comfort level is firm. Click here for shikifuton care instructions.

Please allow 5 to 7 days for production before shipping (excluding weekends and holidays).

The J-Life Shikifuton is also available without a custom removable cover.


J-Life Shikifutons are sized to fit American bed frames. Please note that Japanese style shikifutons are not meant for American futon frames. They require a flat solid surface such as a platform bed or tatami or floor.

Pair your shikifuton with a tatami mat to ensure proper air circulation and to provide added comfort. Our tatami mats are the perfect base for a Japanese mattress.

*King size futons are made by placing two Twin XL futons side by side.

shikifuton queen size

I first ordered the 30x75'' for my living room and I loved it so much that decided to get the queen size for our bedroom as a mattress. I must say that they don't look the same. I don't know if the queen size cover is too big, so the shikifuton has been spreading out more and more and it is getting thinner. I have the smaller size for 6 months and it looks the same from day 1. The queen size I have for less than 1 month and it already looks thinner..not sure if we will keep it in our bedroom, because it is less comfortable than the one we have in the living room. Also, the cover for queen size has seams in the middle. I guess the fabric is not wide enough for the size. But overall, I like the company a lot..just wish they were more similar.

Nicely designed with Japanese sensibility

Reminds me of the good feelings of Japanese craftsmanship (nice soft feeling of cotton)
