tou-makura

It is a rattan pillow. The pillow lets air through and night sweat can be removed with the cloth easily, so it is suitable use for summer. As the rattan pillow was originally used by the ancient Japanese people with updo hairstyles, so it still remains taller than usual pillows because the taller pillows were the regular items in those days. The pillow is used as a foot or arm rest pillow or used for taking a nap.
