Customers Review: Mr.Kowalski
Sleeping on the futon I purchased from Mr. Nohara via has been absolutely amazing! The quality of support that I get from the mattress, combined with the custom fit pillow has ensured I wake up feeling rested and ready to go. Sleeping on a futon is part and parcel of living in Japan, but if you're going to do it, you might as well do it right. I could not be happier with my purchase! Arigatou gozaimasu to Toshi and mr. Nohara!!

Customers Review: Helen (Singapore)
Dear Toshi-san:

I have seen the video of how Mr. Nohara makes the Futon quite some time back and it left a strong impression. In fact, there is very little information if you 'Google' Japan's craftsmen in Futon making. The video of Mr. Nohara is informative and extremely impressive where it comes to the way the 'pillow' dimensions are measured. He speaks with rigor and he is passionate about what he does.

My recent move to a new apartment created an opportunity where I had to purchase some household fittings and a bed. I decided to buy Asia to support the economies here, so I chose TOTO and the Futon. I have had Futons in the past, but somehow Mr. Nohara’s Futon felt special.

My first night's sleep gave me a huge sense of satisfaction. I felt proud that it was made of natural materials, it was extremely lush and comfortable, and I was very proud that it was handmade by Mr. Nohara's family tradition. It has been over a week now, and I am still feeling 'proud' every night when I go to bed. It is indeed very comfortable.

My experience in exchanging emails with you, the information you requested and provided, were reassuring. Overall it was a pleasant process and I am very satisfied.

Thank you very much Toshi-san.
