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 large geometric print in dark grey on solid white fabric.

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.

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.

Use our guide below to find the coordinating tatami mat size for your shikifuton:

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.
