Tatami is a pressed rice straw mat of 4.5 or 5.5 cm thick, with mostly black ribbon trim on the longitudinal edges. Tatami is the traditional Japanese flooring in homes. On the tatami mats that are very stable will be gone (Japanese do not run with shoes in the house), been sitting (eg for tea ceremony) and slept by the futon is rolled out. The classic tatami is 90 x 180 cm, we usually 200 x 90 cm or 80 x 200/70 x 200cm. Tatami are also used by many in this country as a base for their futon, the tatami as well just lying there, as well as set in a bed frame.
The bed is the most popular Myako Tatami bed. Myako is a sleek, shapely solid beech wood frame, stained in natural or black, which borders the tatami. Myako bed is available in all standard sizes: 140 x 200 cm with two tatami 70s, 160 x 200 cm with 80 tatami or 180 cm wide with 90 tatami mats. There are also tatami beds with a normal bed height base to achieve. Tatami bed is important in that it has little or no side mount so that the futon is getting enough air because tatami mats provide little air of untern.
