I’m using a firm mattress but to me it’s not firm enough and i want to sleep on a firmer surface, but floor sleeping hurts. this looks pretty soft, like my back will sink in a bit. How firm is it?

Allison Pharr says:

Thanks for the video! Super helpful! Question.. I’m curious, if Isaiah wants one would you get a queen or another single? I’m asking because planning to get a two person futon for me and my partner, but I’m not sure if it’s best to get a queen or two singles. Thoughts?

Luther Cale says:

Hey thanks so much for the detailed information. I liked all the info that they shared on their site, but it’s even better to hear from someone that purchased it and has used it themselves. I am strongly considering buying one of these and I believe your review may have tipped me over the edge.

I would love seeing a short follow-up video that gives your experience after having used it for a little while and also (selfishly), I would love to see you folding the futon into thirds and maybe either carrying it around or how you transport it or where you store it. I have seen shots of it folded and stored in a closet but I don’t think I’ve seen the actual folding action itself, which I was hoping to see at some point to get a sense of it.

Anyway, thanks again for sharing this with us.

At 2:35 you mentioned most other sites does not meet the standard of authentic futon, is it possible if you can tell me if this website (https://futontokyo.com/product/indian-cotton-futon-mattress-broad/ ) is selling an authentic one? Thanks.

Meaghan Rea says:

I’m in the same position you were in! I just moved and got rid of my old bed with plans on purchasing a new western-style mattress, but after doing extensive research I’m horrified by all the chemicals in them, which led me to research futons. One of the first sites I stumbled upon was futonbedsfromjapan.com, which led me to your video. Thank you so much for this review! I can’t wait to watch the follow up and see what your thoughts are after sleeping on it for a few months 🙂

cherrymartini says:

Hi, thanks for sharing your experience! I am looking at buying a Japanese futon myself, I am just curious as to your height, since you mentioned you were happy with the single size. Or can you tell me how long it is? Thank you!

hayds says:

great vid, thanks for sharing!

stinkfacecheesemonke says:

Hi Desire K — do you use tatami mats or any other form of padding underneath the futon itself? Or just the mattress straight onto the carpet?

hyacinthdibley2 says:

Great review. This is says on their website: *Currently Orders are Shipping 4-6 Work-Days After Being Placed and Usually Take 7-9 Days to Arrive at Your Door After Ship Date. (All Shipments are Freight Free!)* .
I think that’s great. I’ll be ordering one. 🙂

DDThrive11 says:

Hi! Thank you for your videos on this futon. 🙂 I was actually in the process of ordering one of these futons when I noticed they don’t ship to the US. Thus my question is, how did you go about getting yours? Thank you!

Kevin says:

Do you side sleep or back sleep? Your thoughts on how it feels on the futon?

Shampoo says:

So alot of people have reccomened this but the futons are so expensive, I just want the blanket it looks so warm.

Pike Fisherman says:

How is it for side sleeping?

Jasmine V says:

I oredered myself a queen size. I found the FB page for the site and asked for a coupon. They gave me 6% off, saved about $40. I am hoping the queen size is good for 2 people.

Gordon Langley says:

Thanks – for all the detail – really helpful!

Paula Macedo says:

I have bad experience in ordering overseas by the internet, it happened to never get to me and I couldn’t have my money back properly (just paypal credit). I’m based in Latin America, is it safe for me to buy from futonbedsfromjapan.com?

Desire K says:

I have posted a 3 MONTH UPDATE video!! https://youtu.be/v9RlfwidmfU

NextWorldAdventures says:

Pro tip – if you go out of your way to get a “chemical free bed” make sure you live in a space with hardwood floors – that carpet behind you is 10x worse for you than any mattress. Mattresses have some level or regulation for materials and of gassing – carpeting and wall to wall adhesive does not.

Beth 000 says:

Thankyou so much for this review you explained it very well 🙂 i’m definitely gonna consider buying one now haha, i bet it’s so comfy!

Btw do you know the specific measurements of it? 🙂

Brute Waltz says:

What was the smell that it initially had? Thinking about getting one but really sensitive to smells so needing to investigate!

timhardaway12 says:

Are they the exact same company as http://www.futonsjapan.com? Since the company info you mentioned seems exactly the same.

Martin Sanders says:

My futon arrived this week. I can’t believe the difference. It looked uncomfortable but wow, best sleep I’ve had for years. Never going back to a regular bed.

Sean Dexter says:

Hmm their website now says they are not shipping to the US. Is this a new development? Would be just my luck

Knight Rider says:

What are the dimensions of your single? I want a futon so bad, lol!
