Much more than a simple and colorful cushion, the Dakimakura has its origins in pure ancestral Japanese traditions.
The makura (or cushion) appeared in the Edo period and was made in a wooden piece (it had a rectangular shape). About 400 years later, the Japanese discovered the amazing properties of buckwheat and used them for the design of cushions.
After being adopted by millions of Japanese, buckwheat pillows later developed into Dakimakura.
Due to its structure and design, the Japanese cushion is a useful accessory witch a lot of benefits for your sleep quality and durable comfort. It is also practical and space-saving and blends in with the decor of the room.
The buckwheat pillow delights for its therapeutic benefits. They are smooth and cover are often made with super soft velvet and adapts ideally to the body's morphology. It promotes muscle relaxation, protects the neck from all harmful stresses, and ensures better positioning for lying down. It eliminates stress and relieves backache, migraine, and neck pain.
