The Best Japanese Futon Mattress and Reviews

Best Quality Japanese Futon Mattress

J-Life Japanese Traditional Shiki Futon A full-size J-Life Japanese Traditional Shiki Futon pairs traditional styling with U.S. quality that helps improve a great night’s sleep while providing support to the back. This Shikibuton is made using traditional standards, so there is no foam, wool or innersprings (which break down over time).

Most find this floor mattress is so comfortable, that they don’t need additional padding, but if you do, consider buying a tri-fold as under-padding to accustom your body to its new style of sleeping.

J-Life Japanese Traditional Shiki FutonRoomy and sturdy thanks to a 7-ounce twill cover that is woven to last many years, this Shikibuton can be ordered with a made-to-order removable Shiki Futon cover featuring a Japanese-themed pattern for an authentic decorating touch.

This unit stores like a dream when you want it out of the way and since all flammability standards have been met, you’ll rest soundly on your new futon bed.

Best Portable Japanese Futon Mattress

Save money and sleep more comfortably if you opt for a japanese futon mattress over a western bed. Invest in a quality, well-built futon and save hundreds of dollars.

Best Non-traditional Japanese Futon

DHP Emily Split back futon

Sometimes, the idea of sleeping close to the floor is the reason people who resist sleeping on futons avoid them. Introduce them to a comfortable, cozy mattress spread over a frame that gets the mattress off the floor and you create what resembles a western bed that looks familiar, even to those who have resisted futons in the past.

DHP Emily Split back futon For example, this sleek, black, DHP Emily Split back futon matches multiple decorating styles and when it’s not used as a bed, it’s the perfect seating unit. Fashioned of tufted faux leather that repels soil, this futon is a favorite of parents who worry about spills.

The word “versatile” was coined for this futon because it marries the best of Japanese styling with stylish chrome legs. This firm and stylish futon employs click-clack technology for fast couch-to-bed conversion, a popular feature for busy folks who are favorably impressed with anything that can save them a little time.

Tips on Choosing the Right Shiki Futon For You:

  • Select from multiple futon filling choices for the “feel” you desire
    – Cotton
    – Foam
    – Silk: for a soothing, luxurious filling
  • Choose a futon with a removable, washable cover and refresh your bed using only your washing machine.
  • Match your futon to any decorating style you prefer:
    – Modern
    – Vintage
    – Deco

    – Country and more
