On the sunny day... -futon care-
Posted by: kayoko
Finally we got beautiful sunny day! really spring :D
If it's day like this,mother used to try to wake me up early
and said 'hey! air out futons in the sun! '
This is actually hard work but once you did it, you will love to do this ;)
We can sleep with nice and warm futon and then,
I know there is no exist smell of the sun , but you can feel that
untill fall asleep...
Futon means Japanese style bedding and originally we spread bedding
on the tatami for sleep.
'Kake futon' means about duvet and 'shiki futon' means under futon.
Many people prefer to seep in western bedding style now
but this custom won't be change.
Since Japan is high humidity country, this is a good way to dry them out and also
there is a reason to get rid of ticks.
The futon in the sun ;)
