What is a Futon??

A futon is a padded mattress, called a shikifuton, a quilt, called a kakefuton, and a pillow filled with beans, called a makura. The futon was put on the floor at night for sleeping. They could be easily rolled up during the day when they were not needed. The word futon has come to mean a lot more than this.
