Tatami mat in a sunny day

Tatami mat in a sunny day, in Kyoto, Japan
On a sunny day in autumn, the modest sunlight comes down onto the tatami mat, made of straw, through low and small trees planted in a south-facing garden. Such a sunny day is best to take a nap in the tatami mat after lunch. The material is not so hard as wooden flooring and not so soft as futon, a kind of Japanese mattress. So the tatami is also so kind to the bare feet and we usually without slippers, not to speak of shoes.

The tatami was originally used as a bed and people used to sleep on it directly. So that's why the mat is better material to take a short sleep.

Anyway, have a nice weekend!!
