As we reported in Part 2, users of beds have been gradually increasing in Japan. We carried out a survey on the actual use of bedding with 210 subjects who are woman students participating. We have compared the use of bedding for the traditional Japanese way of sleep on Tatami with the way of sleeping on a bed, in order to foresee the tendency of bedding owned in the future.
The results are as follows :
About 57% of the subjects use beds, but they rarely make a bed in the Western style. There are certain differences as to the use of bedding between for those who sleep on Tatami and for those who sleep on beds, except the coverlet.
Generally, those who use beds in Japan don't use bedding for the Western bedmaking, but use the original Japanese style bedding.
