Japanese Futons

We are Australia's #1 supplier of Authentic Japanese futons. We don't sell futons made with locally sourced cotton. The Australian environment cannot sustainably grow cotton without ruining the river ecosystems.

A Japanese futon consists of two parts: a shikibuton (mattress) and a kakebuton (Quilt/Doona). We import limited quantities of hand-made quality futons from a small family-run business on Shikoku.

We do not sell futons for sofa beds or slatted bases

Mattresses that have foam or latex are not real futons

Authentic Japanese futons require a solid/flat surface

This pattern is no longer available

These are the only genuine futons sold in Australia that are made in Japan.

You won't find reviews from fake customers or influencers on our website

Both the shikibuton & kakebuton come individually stitched (quilted) and therefore, need to be covered. So don't forget to add one or two to your order. You never sleep directly on or beneath these (unless you own a cleaning business).

Why you should choose a Japanese Futon over a local 'futon' mattress?

  • They easily fold & store for daily use or shrink to 1/3 size using the supplied vacuum bag to store as a spare bed.
  • Lightweight (6.8-13.7kg). Ideal for people who have bad backs. No more wrestling a 30-40kg monster Aussie 'Futon'.
  • Easy care. Sunning, airing & beating a futon is vital for it's and your health. The heat and UV in sunlight will kill bugs & mould that live in all mattresses. So if you prefer not to sleep with all those nasties then you'd be mad not to choose a Japanese futon.
  • Comfort. Allow 1-4 weeks for your skeleton to adjust to a Japanese futon. Japanese futons compress in the hip and shoulder region to about half the thickness when used. So if you prefer more padding then buy a mattress topper to go underneath it or if prefer a luxurious sleep buy 2 mattresses and stack them.
  • Health They are healthier than foam-cored mattress. Foam creates a moisture barrier which will trap unwanted moisture inside your futon if not thoroughly dried out on both sides of the foam. This creates the perfect environment in which mould and bugs to thrive. Our cotton is unbleached and untreated. So no harmful hydrogen peroxide, boron or sodium hypochlorite is used.
  • Authentic. These are the original and best futons. If you had the option of eating Japanese food made by a master chef in a top restaurant or food court Japanese made by a local with recipes that use other ingredients which would you choose? No need to answer, just pick your genuine Japanese (quality guaranteed) futon from below. You won't find any industrial cotton or foam in a Japanache futon.
  • Brand New. Rest assured that your new futon has never been slept on. For health reasons, we don't offer a trial period and then re-sell returned futons.
  • Why spend 1/3 of your life on a pretend futon when you can get the real deal from Japanache?

We can still ship futons to anywhere in Australia & New Zealand

Futon Sizes & Composition

Our futons comprise of a 90/10% cotton/polyester blend to retain their shape and to keep it cooler than 100% cotton. Follow the care instructions and you should get 5-8 years out of it.

Our futons and covers are made in Japan using premium quality Mexican cotton. These are made using a higher grade of cotton than most Japanese futons.
