Japanology Plus explores Japanese life and culture. In this five-minute digest, we look at tatami mats: a quintessentially Japanese flooring material. Tatami mats are made from rice straw covered in woven soft rush. This gives them just the right amount of give, and a fresh natural fragrance. Tatami rooms are used for eating, sleeping and relaxing. They're also important for the tea ceremony and martial arts.
