How to Make and Maintain a healthy and cozy bedroom in your Japanese House

I don’t need to tell you how important a good night of sleep is, but you might have already found out that sleeping situations work a bit differently in Japan. There are bed frames and mattresses available, yes, but should you opt for a futon? Does it need special sheets? Can you store it directly on tatami floors? How often do you need to air things out?

Don’t worry. We’ve assembled all the basics to furnish and stay on top of happy, healthy sleep stuffs for your place in Japan. Be well-rested so you can be prepared to manage culture shock, process language learning, and maintain your best quality of life. Hit the ground running! Or… er… snoozing! Zzz
