About Us

Story


Kyoto, Japan – a place of outstanding natural beauty backed by a thousand years of history continues to embrace the climate to honor its ‘pure essence’, based on time-proven tradition that passes its legacy 
from one generation to the next.

Kyoto Nishikawa was founded in Oumi (western part of Japan) in 1566. We started our new business in
Kyoto in 1750, and since 1887, we have been disseminating the new culture of life with ‘futon’. What can
we do to offer a comfortable sleep? It is the question Kyoto Nishikawa has been dedicated to answer. 
We approached by investing all of our knowledge and spirit of craftsmanship we have inherited from previous generations. In addition to that, we’ve selected good materials for the products we proudly call “genuine”, using our time-served and cutting-edge technologies. They are the cultural power cultivated in Kyoto. ‘Sleep’ is the pivot of healthy daily life. Kyoto Nishikawa is committed to pursuing better quality of
sleep for healthy and enriched life to the world.
