Some of the best nights sleep I had were sleeping on the floor in Japan. I wanted to do this at home here in the People's Republic of Illinois. That has been difficult. I can find the big, fluffy futon mattress that goes on top. However, there is usually another one underneath, about an inch and a quarter thick. I can't find those. Does anyone know of a reliable vendor of authentic Japanese bed materials, like they use in Japan?

That's a good question. I wouldn't know of any unless you contact a seller in Japan.

They're surprisingly comfortable considering you're sleeping on the floor. We cover the floor with a few mattresses and the entire room become a giant bed. And I agree, the comforters are a little different. Very thick but fluffy and light too. I get a good night sleep to.

Good luck

I see on Amazon that they sell a soft tatami mat, which sounds like what you want.
