Characteristics of organic cotton
Organic cotton is produced using organic methods without using agricultural chemicals or artificial fertilizers, and grown on land where chemicals have not been used for three years or more. Instead of using pesticides, noxious insects are removed by introducing their natural predators.
As the cotton is grown using safe methods, it does not irritate the skin, and can be safely used by small children and people with sensitive skins. Natural cotton has the natural elasticity. It can create suitable hardness for sleeping.
Sleeping on a natural cotton futon mattress will help to align your head, neck, and spine and helps you maintain a good posture.

To select the correct futon size

Please note that what we show on our site is the size of the futon fabric. If it is filled with cotton, it will be about 4 inches (10 cm) shorter in length and width.


Example : Futon Mattress - Single 78” x 39” (200 x 100 cm) will be 74" x 35" (190 x 90 cm) when you receive.

If you are planning to place the futon mattress on your bed, and want to fit them perfectly, please be aware of it and select carefully.

All sizes are approximate.



thickness of futon


Shiki Futon (Futon Mattress) at the time of delivery is very fluffy and voluminous, measuring over 4” (10 cm) in the thickest center position but after about one week of usage the fluffiness will begin to settle, and the mattress will transform into a stiffer, denser futon. After about two to three months of use, the cotton padding becomes even thinner (more constricted) and the futon will become about half of its original thickness. Although the volume decreases, the cotton fiber's "support features" become activated and the futon becomes a mattress that will support your proper sleeping posture.

Futon Tokyo

I no longer wake up in the morning with back pain. Excellent quality and craftsmanship as advertised. After a few weeks it does flatten out a bit and quite thin. I see why most ppl double up on these. I use an old mattress topper underneath and it does the trick. Also really important to flip/rotate once a week.

Communication with the seller went great. I purchased the twin size for my child. It's very comfy. I have placed it on top of a mat, and have also purchased a mattress protector for it. So far so good.

"Futon Tokyo is an all around great seller. This futon is the definition of softness and the exact thing we were looking for: organic, foldable, beautiful, rustic and well made. It arrived quickly and is now the most comfortable sleeping arrangement we ever had 🙂 But even more than the futon, we were impressed with this seller`s kindness, understanding and customer service. Also the paper cranes were a great touch. We are grateful to this wonderful company for this luxurious futon. Thank you so much and will be coming back for pillows ;)"
