I am exploring the idea of getting a Japanese futon (including a shikibuton) as I have had numerous back aches using western mattresses for years, so I was wondering if someone could share with me your experiences and which one you are currently using and from what store? When I was in Japan a few months ago I did sleep on a Nitori futon in Kyoto at the Mosaic Hostel as well as fairly uncomfortable one in Tokyo at the First Cabin Nihonbashiyokoyamacho that was just miserable. So figured it would wise to seek advice beforehand.
Thank you for your time!
Ps. Here is the link to the one at the Mosaic Hostel or at least the closest I could find with their assistance.
I don’t know whether japanese futon is good or not as you already experienced before.
Back aches is your problem, right?
Then, how about focusing the hardness and fabric of mattress?
Too soft or too hard mattress affects back pain. I heard high-resistance mattress is good for back pain.
