A friend referred us to Japanese tatami bed. We ordered the futon in May and arrived after about two months. It is exactly what we are expecting and gives us perfect sleep for a few months from then. I am happy about the switch from traditional mattress to this.

This is the second one I bought (first one was destroyed by dog) and we tried to get a different mattress in the mean time but this mattress spoiled us too much, so we ended up sleeping on the floor until our tatamiroom mattress arrived, which was unfortunately about a month and a half. Honestly though, it’s worth it.

This is my first futon, having switched from a regular mattress on the floor. I had done a lot of research and tatatamiroom was the obvious choice from their price and quality of materials. I am so very happy with my new bed. My back finally lays flat. I wake up with significantly less pain than before.

Thinner than advertised and pictured. With a measuring tape mine sat just short of 3 inches thick. I was hoping it would fluff up after being out of box for a while but never did. Otherwise it is well made and the other dimensions are correct would have been perfect if it was actually as advertised . Not returning however since I already slept on it . I’ll just be getting a topper or second futon.

This is my first futon style mattress so I wasn't too sure what to expect. I got just the mattress before getting the mats and frame to go with, and it was satisfactory, but putting it on the tatami mats made a world of difference! Definitely a great product for the price!

I previously had an 8 inch futon mattress from a different company. It was time to replace it. It was cotton, wool and natural latex. Very expensive. I decided to compare and shop around and discovered Tatamiroom.com
What a find! I only wish I knew of them 7 yrs ago when I purchased the one i had.
After chatting with these most amazingly caring and personable people who either answer immediately by phone or email and reading about their products and all the love and expertise that goes into the making of the shikibutons that are made to order I knew how fortunate I was and that I would be purchasing from them. I bought the tatami mats for a queen bed as well. While it is 100% cotton and only 4 inches thick I experience an excellent nights sleep every night! I wake up refreshed and aligned mentally and physically. The fresh smell of the tatmi mats and the shikibutons is amazing and only adds to the whole experience. They made the mats to fit the yamaguchi bed we ordered from them that was so simple to put together and such a great addition. It is well made and just what we hoped it would be. The whole experience from beginning to end could not have been better and a fraction of the cost of what we paid just for a mattress that we purchased elsewhere 7 years ago.
Tatamiroom is authentic and far superior!
We love our bed and Tatamiroom.
Thank you, Tatamiroom!

Couldn't believe how thick it was when it arrived. After a few nights my weight thinned it out. I have trouble folding it neatly on the occasions I need to but it is comfortable and a wonderful change from softer mattresses, easier to move around on and better for my back with the tatami. The smell does come back when I move it around though.

I became interested in futons for a number of reasons. They offer a more supportive, firm feel than what I've been sleeping on for the past seven years, making it easier to get out of bed. The feel can be customized by adding various layers underneath, such as foam or a tatami mat. They are potentially more sanitary than a western-style mattress, which is rarely or never cleaned. Furthermore, their modular and temporary nature allows sleeping arrangements to change with the needs of life. There's an economic side to this modularity, which is that a newcomer to futons need only buy a twin to begin their experiment.
Buying a futon in the US is challenging. I was daunted by the unfamiliar Japanese terminology: shikibuton, kakebuton. All the retailers I checked (J-Life, Tatami Room, and Futon Beds from Japan) seemed to have higher prices than what one would pay in Japan; I can't explain the difference in cost. Maintenance is often expressed in terms of "lay it over a balcony railing in the sun", whereas most Americans do not live in highrises with balconies, and many do not live in very sunny climates. And you'd be quite lucky to try your new futon in-person before you buy.
Nevertheless, the virtues of a futon were too much to ignore. I chose Tatami Room because it seemed like the cheapest futon on the market still made from natural materials.
My shipping was delayed due to COVID-19. Nevertheless, once the item actually left the warehouse, it arrived much earlier than expected.
A word on the comfort experience. I am male, 5' 10" tall, and 175 lbs. With the futon on the floor, and with me lying on my back, the pelvic region of my spine totally compresses the batting, leaving no more cushioning. On my side, full compression occurs under my shoulder. I'll need another layer, likely of a thick foam padding, to be comfortable and not stiff after a half-hour nap. Nevertheless, I was expecting the futon to be an incomplete solution for me, so I am not disappointed.
I am impressed with the workmanship, not that I have any expertise about it. The materials seem substantial (same goes for the cover, but that's another review). The knotted strings look delicate, but I have no reason to doubt their strength.
