17 Online Sofa Shops to Discover Your Perfect Couch in Japan

Maybe you’re wondering where to buy sofas online for your place in Japan, or maybe you are just scratching your head… You may have noticed that furniture works a bit differently here. Whether you want a sofa or not is actually optional, and plenty of people here spend most of their time closer to the floor [aka sit on the tatami].

But if you want to create a home place that caters to western-style comforts (or if you are like me and get achy knees!), a sofa might be near the top of your home shopping list. So here’s a handy round-up of where you can find sofas online.

*Please note that we have included prices and store offerings as a general guide. They were correct at the time of writing this article. But please refer to each store for the most up-to-date prices and offerings.
