Kyoto Ojami Cushions: A stylish, harmonious blend of old and new.
The ojami is an original cushion developed by Takaokaya over the last decade. The unique shape is inspired by the ancient Japanese beanbag toy called ‘tedama’, or ‘ojami’ in Kyoto dialect.
The ojami cushion is a funky, modern take on the tedama, a traditional Japanese beanbag toy that was filled with azuki beans. Handcrafted by our skilled Kyoto artisans, ojami come in a rich variety of colors, fabric coverings, fillings, sizes and shapes to suit your taste and lifestyle. Amazingly comfortable and of a unique geometrical shape, functionally these cushions are designed for posture support and correction, and to be a beautiful decorative object suitable to any living or working space.

Ojami Settee Cushions
Ojami Settee cushions are a luxurious version of the lovely and comfy Ojami. Settee are huge, nearly 60cm in diameter and 15cm thick. They are plumply stuffed by our artisan staff to create the ultimate cushion. Fabric varieties offered are equally luxurious and rich and varied.
Our ‘little ojami’! Unlike our regular ojami, these have a pleasing ‘beanbag’ filling, reminiscent of the origins of our Ojami range, the traditional Japanese beanbag toy. These kawaii little cushions are designed to be the perfect height and firmness for napping.
Ojami Flat Cushions
Ojami Flat Cushions bring the style and handcrafted comfort of Ojami to Western-style chairs. They also make a wonderful decorative element to Western rooms and furniture.
Kyoto Zabuton Cushions
Zabuton are traditional Japanese cushions with nearly 1000 years of history. Originally, zabuton indicated high status, and were only used by people such as the emperor and members of the imperial court, or most revered of Buddhist monks. Now, zabuton are part of daily life and are central to Japanese omotenashi culture of hospitality. Our Kyoto Zabuton are made true to the traditions of our unique city, but have been also been adapted for greater stability and comfort. Use one of our zabuton cushions and you’ll never want an ordinary cushion again!
Round Zabuton Cushions
We’ve lovingly named this range of cushions after our favorite Japanese snack: senbei rice crackers. Whether for some extra support on your chair, lounging in front of the TV, and even as a floor rug, these round cushions are fun, decorative and functional.
Our contemporary Futon range is designed for summer, utilizing Japanese roughly woven linen fabric, dyed in traditional hikizome and bokashizome techniques. These materials and motifs are a favorite of Japanese for summer bedding and fashion. Try our Kyoto summer inspired futon covers in your region and do without the air conditioner when you sleep.
Gorone Nap Roll Futon
Our Gorone Nap Roll is inspired by two Japanese words: goron and ne. Goron means to ‘flop down’, make yourself comfortable. Ne, means to sleep. Rollout this convenient little roll on the floor, sofa or bed and take a luxurious afternoon nap!
