Japanese mattress sizes

We've recently moved into a new apartment and being one with sinus and 花粉症 (かふんしょう, pollen allergies), I insist we sleep on beds rather than on futons on the floor.
Bed/matress/futon sizes in Japan normally comes in 3 sizes:
  • Single (S): 150x210cm
  • Semi double (SD): 170x210cm
  • Double (D): 190x210cm
When you have 2 small children co-bedding with you, it is highly recommendable that you get an SD plus an S size bed/mattress/futon. With the limited space you have in Japanese apartment, this would be the ideal combination instead getting 2 doubles (too big) or 2 singles (not enough room for 4 people)

On another note, the common size for baby futons is 70 x 120 x 6cm and play yard mat is 64 x 96 x 4cm.
