Japanese tend to follow a unique lifestyle pattern all the time. Same goes, when it comes to sleeping patterns. They believe in leading a healthy life and so an undisturbed sleep is what they desire to achieve a better quality of life. It does not have anything to do with lack of intimacy or divorce knocking at the door.
They have different sleep schedules
Different work schedules makes Japanese couples decide to go to bed separately. Waking up to your better half just because you got home late from work or have to leave early won’t result in good quality rest for them. This is why spending the night in a different room makes sense to result in an undisturbed sleep.
Babies sleep with their mothers.
Japanese mothers sleep with their kids and this is considered very crucial, so the father needs to decide if he wants to share the same bed or go to a different room. Scientifically this move has proven that co-sleeping can help parents and children get a more peaceful sleep. It helps the child to maintain a stable temperature and heart rate and simultaneously, it decreases the chance of sudden infant death syndrome.
For them, sleeping separately means peace.
The Japanese have a different motive of sleeping separately. They value their sleep a lot and hence don’t want their sleep to be disrupted. This means that they don’t need and don’t like to put up with snoring, restless sleep, kicking, etc.
Couples have a history of sleeping separately.
A futon bed consists of a wooden frame, mattress and are filled with cotton, which provides support and comfort. So, even if there was a craving to cuddle up with your loved one, you would have ended up between the sheets, on the cold floor, and you would feel uncomfortable.
