Like Sleeping 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.

THE J-LIFE SHIKIFUTON IS AN AUTHENTIC JAPANESE FUTON

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 kanji script is from an old Japanese poem that reads:

"The fragrant, colored flowers are delicately scattered. Who can remain unchanged in this world?

Transcend the present world, do not dream fleeting dreams, do not act out."

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.

FUTON SIZES

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.

Super restful sleep

Shipping was fast and it only took a few hours of being aired out with the windows open for the undesirable smell to go away! I have slept like a baby since getting my shiki buton. I would definitely recommend for people looking for a harder sleeping surface to help quell back pains :)

So far it’s very good.

I have only had this mattress for a couple of months, but the quality is unmatched. I will definitely be making more purchases from this crafter. I’m very impressed. Unfortunately I am not a wealthy person and cannot buy often, however it is worth saving for.
