Like sleep 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 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.

4” Shikifuton with Toransu Navy Removable cover

Love this mat. I wish I had ordered the 3”, as the 4” is thicker than the number implies, but hopefully it will flatten out with time. It’s nice and firm, a great sleep, and folds up handsomely. The cover is beautiful, but as soon as I slipped it over the futon, I noticed a three inch tear in the seam - I had hand-washed and hang-dried the cover but maybe it shrunk a bit and squeezing the futon in forced the seams open. That’s what brought it to 4 stars, but overall, I’m very happy with it.

Re-aligns back

Sleeping on this in combination with the tatami mats have tremendously reduced my back pain. For the previous decade back pain was the last thing I thought about before bed and I woke up with serious back pain. Ditching a traditional mattress for this set up has truly been life changing. It is also great to sleep on. I got the King 3" thick cotton batting. I might recommend getting two of the mattresses that are narrow and putting them together to prevent it being flatter in the middle then on the outside.
