  • Back Pain Relieved by Futon?

    "The best night's sleep I've had in 20 years!"

    That may sound like sales "hype" to you—it would to me too, except that is the type of comments I've received from customers who had been plagued with back pain for years. Is a futon possibly the perfect solution for your back pain? As everyone's situation and condition is different, I can't say for sure (and I'm not a medical professional in any way), but I thought I'd share a few comments I've gotten back on my Customer Satisfaction Survey and let you decide it this may be a viable option for you [Click the above post title to read more]
  • Do I need Tatami Mats? What Should Go Under My Futon?

    People often ask what should go under their futon and if they need tatami mats? Definitely not. Although tatami mats certainly look great and have additional benefits, they're not needed for you to enjoy your futon. [Click the futon image to the left or the red header above to find out more.]
  • Finding Traditional Japanese Futon: You Have Exactly What I was Searching for!

    Trouble Finding Traditional Japanese Futon?

    Finding Traditional Japanese Futon in Your Home Country.
    Having trouble finding traditional Japanese futon? One common theme I hear from my customers is that they had lived in or visited Japan and they've found it impossible finding traditional Japanese futon in their home country like the one they had slept on in Japan. That is . . . until they finally found FutonBedsFromJapan.com. As we're fast approaching our first year in business (the website was actually finished (mostly!) last February (2015), but it takes some time for Google to do it's magical ranking process so that people can actually find our website—Something we're still working feverishly on!), so I'm calling our first order as (roughly) the first day in business (June, 2015), we've now created the place to go to get the REAL thing: Authentic, hand-made Japanese futon made in and shipped from Japan.

    It is a blast to get their emails: "Finally! You sell exactly what I've been looking for all these years!"

    Of course, that's cool. However, when they go on to say (after receiving their futon), "Your futon is even more comfortable than the one I slept on in Japan", we're even more excited. We never get tired of hearing this! We never grow bored with all the positive feedback and reviews. In fact, as I recently wrote Jan in a reply to her email to me, my "crazy futon experiment" has rapidly transformed from "a way to make money" to a honest-to-goodness Movement. Futon Fans Unite! :)

    Anyway . . . Here's Jan's comments about her recent futon purchase (also the pictures on this post were graciously provided by her as well)

    Hi Dean -

    I just wanted to check in with you now that I've slept on my futon for a few nights to let you know that I'm really happy with it and to thank you so much for all of your help! I just filled out the customer satisfaction survey.

    I've attached a couple pics (not the greatest) in case you want to use them in the blog/reviews section of your website. I am so happy with my purchase and so grateful that your company exists. I searched for a place to buy a traditional Japanese futon after returning from a trip to Japan a few years ago and couldn't find anywhere that I felt was selling an authentic product, let alone somewhere/someone who made it so easy and made me feel so comfortable. I knew from the minute I found your website that I was getting exactly what I'd been searching for.

    Thanks again!

    Best,
    Jan

    Of course I was very grateful to receive her comments . . . but then she wrote again in a follow up email (below).

    Follow up email:

    Hi Dean -

    I just woke up and had to send you a quick email to say thanks again, I love my futon more with each night! You can't imagine how happy I am to be getting a restful sleep. It is so comfortable and I really love that it is all natural. While I was getting rid of my Western mattress I took a good look and was horrified by all the synthetic materials from which it was made. Anyway, I just wanted you to know how grateful I am that you've made authentic Japanese futons so accessible.
    Thanks!
    Jan

    The Pics:
    Jan already had a box-frame she wanted to use. She contacted me before her purchase to ask about it to make sure it would work. Notice she also purchased some traditional tatami mats (from another vendor) to complete the authentic futon bedding experience. She already had a nice thick down-filled comforter. All in all we think it looks fantastic! (In fact, I love the look of her whole room!)

  • Shikibuton Surprise for Ashley on Christmas Morning

    [Fun Video!] An Authentic Hand-Crafted Shikibuton: A Little Comfy Piece of Japan (A Video of Ashley's Christmas Morning Surprise) While studying abroad in Japan, Ashley had slept on a futon. Once she returned to the US, she discovered that she was having a hard time getting a good night's rest sleeping on a Western style bed. (This is a familiar story to us here at FutonBedsFromJapan.com!) Because of this, her mother decided to bring a very comfortable piece of Japan back to Ashley. (A lot less expensive than returning Ashley to Japan!) Judging just by Ashley's reaction in the video (once she realized what was happening ... something that unfolds hilariously in the video), you know this was a wise move on Mom's part. (Follow up emails confirmed this.) [Click the Post Title to Watch the Video and Read the Entire Post]
  • Testimonials: Happy Customers Share Their Experiences

    "While buying something online sight unseen can be daunting, the customer service was top notch with prompt, professional emails.

  • Traditional Japanese Futon?

    Before you purchase any futon, please take the time to investigate a little more. Our Japanese futon are made in Kochi, Japan in a factory owned and operated by a true futon master, Master Ikeuchi. He has been making futon for over 50 years. Of course he doesn't make every futon, these days, but his son and son-in-law (who he personally trained for decades) do. And if you understand Japanese craftsmanship, then you know that nothing goes out the door that Master Ikeuchi wouldn't be proud to put his name on—his reputation is everything to him! Even in Japan, there are plenty of machine-made, mass-produced cheaper futon available. Just because it says, "Made in Japan" is no guarantee of quality. However, when we say "Traditional Japanese Futon," we mean exactly that. Over 50 years of experience goes into every shikibuton & kakebuton we sell on FutonBedsFromJapan.com.
  • "Customer service was Prompt, Reliable and Easy to Understand." (Testimonial)

    I appreciated that this site had answers and information that made sense to a non-Asian audience. Some of the other sites I went to had poor customer service ratings and vague answers to people's questions. I felt more comfortable knowing that I was ordering from a company that had both local and international people working with them to present a clear picture of what I was ordering. I felt confident that it would be high quality work and was willing to order promptly once I chose which futon I wanted. I wanted a bed that was easy to air out in the sun and fit into my car! That's what this is and I was able to carry it from the pick up point with only one arm! You can't do that with a traditional mattress?! Thank, so much! Now I don't have to sleep on air mattresses anymore! Blessings, Adora"
