Pillow is very nice tho smaller than one I'd bought nine years ago, this doesn't affect the comfort level and is large enough...pillow is cool, hulls allow air to flow through and it keeps the shape you put it in..am pleased..

I bought this item because I had owned one previously and wanted another. I find it helps with neck pain and it doesn't get "hot".

I have been using the buckwheat husk filled sobakawa pillows for at least 15 years. Every few years it needs to be replaced, because the buckwheat husks do not hold up forever. I could not find the pillow this time around. They sell a bead filled pillow everywhere, but it is cheap and does not do the job. I found my old pillow online at walmart.com and ordered it to be picked up at the store. It is smaller and not as nice as the ones I have had in the past, and came wrapped in plastic, rather than the original boxed packaging. It is not holding my neck as well as the ones I used in the past. Quality has gone down significantly!

I was looking for a replacement for my old Sobakawa Pillow and was very excited to find one through Walmart. This is my second Sobakawa...my old one I left at our vacation home so I don't have to take a pillow each time we travel. It took me a couple of days to get used to the difference from a "tradtional" pillow, the first time...this time there was no "breaking in" period. I remember with the first one, it took me a while to get used to the "sound" of the pillow...when you turn your head it makes a "scrunching" noise that I wasn't used to. I like that fact that it doesn't get hot in the summer or cold in the winter. Although I was reading that you can stick it in the freezer for a couple of hours to chill it down, which I'm going to try on the next scorcher. I am a stomach, side sleeper and it works great!

I discovered these buckwheat pillows years ago and will continue to buy them. My son loved these too as he was growing. He also had a very straight neck needing support. You don't need to buy a bigger size because these are just right. They stay where you want them. I'm allergic to down and fiberfill pillows would flatten and make my neck ache. The pain would wake me several times a night and I would have to reposition the pillow again for neck support. I sleep extremely well with these and they seem to last forever. Great for back and side sleepers. As a side sleeper who has searched for the best support, I can tell you that this will conform to your individual neck. These pillows stay cool even when it's warm in my room. They never get hot to make me sweat. If you've never used these before, it may take a little getting used to the shhhh sound the hulls make at first. You will be so happy not to wake up with any neck pain that you soon won't even notice. I understand that a new sobekawa pillow has come out with some processed plastic or styrofoam something beads. I personally think the buckwheat hull version will stay cooler than a man made processed material. I may be wrong but I'm not going to change what is already perfect. Just my own personal opinion.

I've tried a wide variety of pillows over the years and none really worked well. I would toss, turn, and wake up with neck discomfort most mornings. I decided to give the Sobakawa a try based upon a friend's recommendation. She's had several neck and back surgeries and it's the ONLY pillow she can sleep on without pain. I bought the small sized one, figuring that it wasn't a great loss if things didn't work out... I am highly pleased! The noise others have mentioned is not objectionable at all. I have not noticed any odors. What I have noticed is that I wake up without neck pain for the first time in many years. I sleep soundly, without the tossing and turning I've fought with in the past. I wake REFRESHED and my fiance says she notices a difference in my level of energy. I gave the "Meets Expectations" category a 4 because of the size. I will be buying a couple of the Queen sized pillows shortly.

I've been sleeping on a Sobakawa Buckwheat Hull Pillow for 20 years. They don't smush your face which causes wrinkles and they hold your head in a perfect and comfortable position for sleeping. They're never hot. I love these pillows and will never sleep without one. I always pack one when I travel.

I am a back and neck sufferer. After trying several neck pillows I tried this pillow for the first time many years ago. I fell in love with it and used it for many years. When the fluffy beaded pillows came out I gave it away to try this new one--big mistake! The elasticity of the casing of that pillow was all gone after 8 or 9 months and I was left with no support for my neck that led to shoulder and neck pain all over again. I again was on the look out for a new pillow all the while forgetting about my wonderful experience with my Sobakawa pillow. I finally decided to give up my search for the perfect pillow for me and ordered the Original Sobakawa pillow again and have absolutely no regrets. Once again I am experiencing a good night sleep without all the tossing and turning and no shoulder pain. I will be ordering another since I never want to be without this pillow again.

  • A. No, I use a seam ripper and undo about 3 inches of the seam. I dump the hulls into a paper bag (grocery store size) and then turn the case inside out, then shake the pillow case out side to remove anymore small hulls. Then was in machine like normal and dry. I put the hulls back inside the case (i use a large opening funnel) and sew the seam back up on sewing machine or you can do it by hand, just make sure it's a close stitch so hulls can't come out. The pillow is worth this effort. I have cervical problems and this is the greatest thing for sleep!
