    Saga Fujimoto Tatami Shop

    Traditionally made Kyo-Tatami mats add elegance to your rooms

    Established in 1912, this tatami (a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese-style rooms) shop has been providing their high quality tatami mats to imperial buildings and Urasenke tea ceremony facilities.  For example, their mats can be found in the imperial palace, Urasenke Konnichian tea ceremony building, many renowned ryokan inns and hotels, teahouses of traditional Japanese restaurants and Sukiya style (a house in the style of a tea-ceremony pavilion) buildings.  They only use traditional materials and methods and their mats are mostly hand sewn, providing a highly trusted quality to customers.  They are also known to have re-started making “Yotsuwari-shitate”, known as a rare and precious style of tatami mats, after production had stopped entirely.  In recent years, they have been receiving a growing number of orders from overseas.  For usual households, they offer new tatami or the replacement of the surface of existing mats as well as turning the mats over.  New mats have a nice fragrance of igusa grass.  One tatami mat is priced from 36,750 yen.
