Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate that you are taking the time to look here. In Japan when we want pillows we go to a pillow maker. Unfortunately for me, while living in this country I found it virtually impossible to find an authentic Japanese buckwheat pillow, so I decided to create and manufacture my own based on my own lifetime experience. I have been using buckwheat pillows just like the one I'm selling here, since I was a small child in Japan, and I can't sleep without it! I believe that once you try this pillow you will never sleep on a "regular" pillow again! No more tossing and turning all night long! You will feel the difference that buckwheat hulls make. These are the best Buckwheat Pillows. High QUALITY, designed, and fabricated by genuine Japanese. I've hand picked the very best American grown buckwheat hulls, they are locally grown and harvested, and they have been cleaned using a triple cleaning process to remove dust, buckwheat flour, and debris from amongst the hulls. 100% organic, grown totally without pesticides or herbicides. Nothing, absolutely-no additives. I use the highest quality 100% unbleached cotton fabric for the pillow case, comfortable texture, very durable yet very smooth to sleep on. Also, this pillow includes a zipper to allow you the option of removing hulls and adjusting the pillow to fit your exact needs.

The pillow is a well-made zippered case that has buckwheat hulls inside. There's no other interior liner or bag holding the hulls in the case. You'll need to use a pillowcase because the last thing anyone would want to do is take out all of those little hulls just to launder the zippered case. I just use one of my standard pillowcases, which is way too big, but it works in a pinch. The size of this little pillow, by the way, is absolutely perfect. I've assembled an army of every size/shape pillows and this is the one that truly fits.
There's no odor. It is easy to take hulls out (save them in a big bag so you can add them back later when the pillow loses volume) and make the pillow as thin as you like. You can shape the pillow so it forms to your head/neck and it holds that shape through the night. The pillow comes with a nice storage case. The seller, Beans72, was great about making contact after the sale to see how things were going. All in all, this is a wonderful, hard, comfortable, strange, and adaptable little pillow that I'm so glad I bought.
Edit: going on almost 4 years now with no problems. I've seen some other reviews where people found bugs after using the pillows for a while. I've had this pillow and purchased enough refill hulls from Beans72 that I've lost count, and none of them have had any bugs. Ever. I've checked very closely. They didn't have any bugs in the bag. They never developed any bugs during use. I don't want to make anyone feel bad because bugs in pillows are pretty horrifying, but I think there's a possibility that those bugs may have come along later. I don't presume to know about other people's pillows, or other people's homes, or other people's bug conditions. I just know that for many solid years, I have never had this issue with hulls received from this seller.
So, if you're looking at this pillow you probably already know all about buckwheat hulls, but I'm going to summarize it for you. This product comes with instructions on how to take care of the pillow, like putting the pillow in the sunlight for an hour once a month to dry it out OR removing all of the hulls and washing the pillow case. It's very easy to do. If you have a regular pillow, you can do this too to improve your pillow hygene, but just throw it in the dryer or follow the instructions on the tag of the pillow. Also, after about 6 months the hulls with be what they call "polished" and take up slightly less space. This is where you can add the extra hulls they give you back into the pillow and you'll be set until you feel like getting a new pillow.

I got Beans72 specifically because I worried about smell and chemicals. I can't say if there are chemicals in these pillows or not, but there was definitely no smell or bugs. I also got a generous portion of buckwheat and scooped out 3/4 of a gallon to get my pillow to the right amount of fullness. I know this because the spare buckwheat is still sitting in a gallon Ziploc bag.
