    説明
    Tatami mats are used for flooring Japanese-style rooms. The core is made of compacted rice straw and the surface is covered with woven rush. One tatami mat measures about 3 feet wide and 6 feet long, with a thickness of about 2 inches. Although there are regional variations, each mat is always twice as long as it is wide. It is common to measure the size of a room by the number of tatami mats in it: a 6 jo (or six-mat) room, an 8 jo room, and so on. Worn mats can be dealt with by reversing the rush covering, or by changing the covering for completely fresh rush.
