A whole futon set includes a mattress shikibuton ("spreading futon") and a duvet kakebuton ("covering futon").  During the day, both pieces of a futon bedding set can be aired, folded, and stored in a big closet, allowing the room to be used for purposes other than sleeping. 
Futons are traditionally placed on tatami, a type of mat used as a flooring material that provides a softer base for the futon than most harder flooring options, such as wood or stone. To avoid mould and keep the futon free of mites, futons must be folded everyday and aired in the sun. Futons are widely available in Japan.
Futons in the Western style
Western-style futons, which look like low, wooden sofa sleepers, are quite different from their Japanese counterparts.  They're usually the size of a western mattress, and they're too thick to fold. They are frequently put up and placed on a slatted frame, which eliminates the need to take them to the open air on a regular basis, which is especially important in the dry indoor air of a centrally heated home.

Numerous reviewers agree that this futon is simple to fold and contend that it isn't really a futon if you can't fold it up. The traditional Japanese futon is modelled after on this floor mattress. If it isn't draped on a frame, it can be folded away and neatly stowed when not in use, making it a fantastic option for smaller rooms or homes with seldom visitors. The futon doesn't need a frame and offers a soft yet supportive night's sleep thanks to its three layers of foam, cotton, and polyester (although you can buy one separately if it will be a more permanent feature of the room).
