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 buckwheat cushion cover features a dotwork seikai ha pattern printed in white on solid navy fabric. You can learn more about this traditional Japanese pattern on our blog.

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"

Shikifuton, kakefuton, hull and silk pillows

Everything I bought is pretty good in quality. I was disappointed that items were made in China and I wish the hull pillows were bigger. They are a 3rd of the size of a normal pillow. I still do recommend! Thanks jlife!

I like the pillow a lot

ongoing excellent regarding the pillow. I also bought a 3" queen futon which you would not ship to hawaii. So it has been sitting in Oregon at my sons due to my daughter in law unable to work for Alaska airlines due to covid. So, unable to ship it for me. Maybe someday I'll get to try it out. This won't be my first real futon. I have used them since I broke my back in 1980. I was so happy to find one in the USA, only to find that you consider Hawaii a foreign country. My review will have to wait along with me.

just as described & comfy

I think this has been great for my posture. Comfy, especially when sleeping on my back. Works and looks great with a J-Life futon

Don't buy if you want it soon as a gift

It takes a month to receive it. Much smaller than you see from photo.
