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 authentic Japanese futon comes with a beautiful removable cover in 100% cotton imported Japanese 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, worked with master shikifuton craftsmen in Japan, and developed the design of the J-Life Shikifuton. Now, over 20 years later, the J-Life shikifuton is a trusted choice for those looking for a reliable, authentic Japanese style sleep experience.

All-Natural Materials

True to Japanese custom, our futon is composed of a pure, 100% unbleached cotton duck cover, filled with 100% American-grown cotton. The J-Life Shikifuton has no wool, foam or innersprings. In accordance with US fire retardant standards, our shikifuton mattress uses naturally-derived boron as a fire retardant.

The custom zippered removable cover is designed to snugly fit our Japanese mattress. Each custom removable cover is handmade of high-quality, 100% cotton fabric imported directly from Japan that features traditional Japanese patterns.

This futon cover features a ditsy sakura floral print on rich navy fabric. Visit our blog to learn more about the significance of cherry blossom flowers in Japanese culture.

Futon Firmness

The J-Life Shikifuton is available in two thicknesses: a popular 4-inch option and a more traditional 3-inch. Firm sleep surfaces, like that of a Japanese style floor mattress, help to improve sleep posture, resulting in rewarding sleep and pain-free mornings. Comfort level is firm.

Scale showing firmness of shikifuton mattress: on a scale of 1 (soft) to 10 (firm) a 4" shikifuton is a 6 and a 3" shikifuton is an 8

J-Life Futons & Tatami Mats

Traditionally, a Japanese futon mattress is intended for use on a flat solid surface, such as a tatami mat, floor, or platform bed. While J-Life Shikifutons are sized to fit American bed frames, please note that they are not meant for American style futon frames. Pair your shikifuton with a Japanese tatami mat to ensure proper air circulation and to provide added comfort.

Scroll through the product images to find the tatami and futon size guide, which shows the appropriate tatami mat size options for your shikifuton.

J-Life Japanese Mattress Sizes

The J-Life Shikibuton mattress can also be ordered without a custom removable cover. We also offer a Shikifuton Protective Cover for extra protection against dirt and moisture.

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

Please Note: Due to compression caused by the packing and shipping process, futons may be smaller than their actual size upon delivery. Please allow your shikifuton at least 1-2 weeks to expand to its actual size.

Back Pain Relief

I was having lower back pain and sharp pains in my knees. After two days of sleeping on the futon, all the pain was gone. Some sort of miracle. Plus I’m experiencing a more restful sleep.

Not sure yet...

While this is the best made in America futon I've had, I'm still not sure it compares to the simple futon I had in Japan. The main problem is keeping its shape. I hang it outside regularly, but after one night the cotton filling disperses away from my body. If I don't hang it or lay it one a table outside, it gets progressively more flat after just a couple days. It's been a month since receiving it so I'm hoping it gets better but I'm getting concerned.
