What is a "hadakake futon"?
There is no clear definition or standard of distinction between a hadakake futon and a kake futon.
Both are classified as "kake futon - quilts" in terms of bedding and worn over the body.
Hadakake futon are lighter ones. In our case, it means that the amount of cotton used is about half.
The difference between a hadakake futon and a kake futon is the warmth.
Generally speaking, kake futon is warmer because they retain heat better with the thick layer of cotton fillings.
Hadakake futon does not retain heat as well, but rather plays a role in preventing excess body heat from dissipating.
In Japan, the kake futon is basically used for all three seasons except summer, and the hadakake futon is used for all three seasons except winter. Using this as a basic idea, try to find your perfect comfort by making adjustments such as adding a blanket in winter, or removing the kakefuton, and using a towelket on tropical summer nights.
Depending on the region you live in and the altitude you are at, the importance of warmth or breathability will vary.
Some people find it easier to sleep on a warm futon even in the summer, while others find a heavier futon more restful, and everyone has different sleeping preferences.
