The Tatami Bed. Tatami beds are platform bed-frames that are designed to have a tatami mat inserted on the top. The advantage, of course, is that they’re higher up and easier to get in and out of, and also, there is an aesthetic aspect to having a bed-frame that some prefer.
"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.

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]
- 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.

- [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]

- 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.
