story of ojami

The Ojami Cushion is the brainchild of Takaokaya’s 3rd generation CEO, Koichiro Takaoka. Being particular about relaxing, he has always found it a little uncomfortable to fold the traditional zabuton cushion in half when sitting on the floor. So he wanted to revolutionize the experience of sitting down by creating a cushion that everyone can “sit comfortably by raising our bottom”, as part of his lifelong quest of pursuing the art of relaxation and creating kutsurogi products that put a smile on everyone who uses them. Inspired by the ancient Japanese beanbag toy called otedama (or ojami in the Kyoto dialect) and coupled with his many years of knowledge gained from creating kutsurogi products and making cushions, the Ojami cushion which offers unsurpassed comfort, finally came to fruition.

Supportive, unique shape, lovely pattern, excellent craftsmanship & customer service.

While shopping for a Kyoto zabuton, I fell in love with this matching Aizome-Fu Ojami cushion.

A couple things to consider: First, this is hand-made in Kyoto, so you may need to wait a bit for it to be ready. This has a customized pattern (Asanoha / 004.Kikaracha), and it took three weeks from the purchase date for the order to be ready to ship. Second, if you are ordering from the United States, shipping will likely not be cheap.

For me, however, both the wait and the shipping costs are well worth it. I had some tricky delivery instructions, and Takaokaya staff were very prompt and courteous in sorting those out. A staff member even contacted me to make sure I received my order on time, and that everything was present and correct (it was :)

The cushion is comfortable and supportive. I use it for my back on a well-broken-in leather couch. It has a truly unique and eye-catching shape, and it is constructed to hold that shape well. The pattern and colors are consistent with product photos on the site. The brown is rich and textured, and the indigo in the Asanoha panels is striking. It is so deep that it can almost pass for black in warmer light. The quality of materials and craftsmanship is evident, especially in how the alternating panels are joined together. I also LOVED that it came with a thank you card signed and stamped by the craftspeople involved in its construction.

It is rare these days you purchase something that you can tell people took great care and pride in making and getting to you. This will not be my last purchase from Takaokaya.

(Photos include the nude Kyoto zabuton with Aizome-Fu / Asanoha cover that I purchased separately.)

We really appreciate this detailed 5* review that you left us for the Ojami cushion as well as about our service, Jason. Thank you for taking time to do it and for the great pictures attached to the review as well.

We are glad everything worked out fine and that you love our cushions, as well as the tag that tells the manufacturing journey of your cushions.

Happy Kutsurogi (means relaxation)!

Fantastic quality and service!

Really happy with the whole process. I ordered and had it shipped all the way to Australia with no problem at all. The products were premium quality and you can see the care that went into them. I was especially surprised with the personal note that came with the items. It added such a fine touch to such quality products! Thank you so much!

Hi Michael-san,
