Why sleep on a Japanese futon you might ask? It’s just a mattress on the floor! That’s probably what you’re thinking.
While a traditional bed on a raised frame is the western standard, people in Japan have traditionally slept on mattresses laid down on the floor each night and rolled up each morning.
There are many advantages to owning a futon rather than a traditional bed. I’ll list out a few of the most obvious advantages:
- You’ll save a huge amount of space
- Futon’s are generally much cheaper and just as comfortable as an expensive western style mattress
- Extremely mobile, moving a futon is a breeze
- Great for your back and alignment
