Authentic Japanese Futons
For centuries the people of Japan had little space in their homes; most families had one room which they used for living, sleeping, eating, and working. Because of this, they had to come up with something that could be used and then stored away. The Japanese futon was the answer to their sleeping problems.
An authentic Japanese futon consists of a shiki-futon (mattress) and a kake-futon (comforter). Here at Asian Ideas, they are a must have. The two used together make a unique spare bed.
