THE J-LIFE ALL-NATURAL 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 cover is 100% unbleached cotton duck. The fill is also made from 100% cotton for comfort and natural air-flow. In addition, this authentic Japanese futon meets US fire retardant standards by using a natural boron material.

Learn more about the complete Japanese sleep system over on our blog.

Ships within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays).

The J-Life Shikifuton is also available with a custom removable cover made of 100% cotton fabrics imported from Japan. We also offer a shikifuton protective cover for extra protection against dirt and moisture.

Please see our Shikifuton Care Guide and FAQs to learn more about caring for our Japanese futon mattresses.


FUTON SIZES

The J-Life Shikifuton is available in two thicknesses: a 4 inch option 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.)

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, tatami mat, or floor. Use our guide below to find the correct tatami mat size to go with your shikifuton:

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

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

Thankful!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My husband and I, our four teenage children have more energy, a desire to stretch, and less body ache's. We purchase the Japanese Futons to replace our traditional beds sets, and have no regrets. All I can say is that we are thankful to have come across this site!

Minimalist but comfortable

I've been sleeping quite well on my new futon. I appreciate the Twin XL size option as well. It's easy to fold up out of the way which is important for my needs.
