Pillow Sheath

Customize the look and firmness of your J-Life Buckwheat Hull Pillow, or Soba Gara Makura, with our Japanese pillow covers and loose buckwheat hull (available by the pound).

Our handmade buckwheat pillow covers allow you to easily transfer the buckwheat pillow filling from an existing pillow cover into a different one, so you can refresh the look of your Japanese bedding, or replace a damaged/ worn pillowcase.

This Japanese pillow cover features a ditsy sakura floral print on red fabric. Visit our blog to learn more about cherry blossoms in Japanese culture.

Traditional Japanese Comfort

Faithful to Japanese tradition, your sobakawa pillow case is composed of:

  • An outer sheath that functions like a pillowcase and is available in White Ultra Sateen or in the same matching fabric as the outer case. In Japan, the color white is considered sacred and is associated with purity, humility, and cleanliness. It holds great significance in the Shinto religion.

  • An outer case made with 100% cotton imported traditional Japanese fabric.


Our buckwheat pillows are available in two styles: the buckwheat neckroll pillow and the rectangular buckwheat pillow (each sold separately).

Rectangular Buckwheat Pillow: 13" x 18"

Buckwheat Neck Pillow: 3.5" x 15"

Bye bye neck pain

I suffer from chronic neck pain and I am not kidding I felt a tremendous relief after using the neck pain Now I am both back and neck pain free thanks to my tatami and my buckwheat pillow. I am waiting now on my shikifuton to arrive. I am so excited to complete my sleeping system

Wonderful Pillow

Very nice. Was too firm when I got it, but with the zipper on the side, I was able to set aside a few handfuls of hulls to make the pillow my desired hardness. With the lavender, it smells so so lovely.

Love it

Finally an answer to my neck pain and backpain. I’m only 31yr old and weigh 150lb, great shape, haha so this is huge! I’ll forever sleep on a shiki. Also I’m highly allergic to dust so the cotton everything is fantastic for me. Best gift I bought myself in years. Thank you J-life.
