Like sleeping in Japan!

Made to painstaking traditional Japanese specifications by an American manufacturer, the J-Life Shikifuton offers the ultimate comfort of an authentic shikibuton.

This Japanese mattress comes with a custom washable 100% silk cover in a lustrous beige hue. It features a convenient zipper closure for easy removal and care. These tightly woven, all-natural silk covers are designed to protect your futon while simultaneously providing a luxuriously comfortable sleep surface.



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 100% unbleached cotton duck. The J-Life Shikifuton has no wool, foam or innersprings. The shikifuton mattress uses boron as a fire retardant.

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.

The J-Life Shikifuton is also available without a cover, or mattress covers may be ordered individually (without a mattress).

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 ideal Japanese futon bed base.

*King size futons are made by placing two Twin XL futons side by side.

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