Sobakawa Buck Pillow
This pillow was a surprise for my husband. He won't sleep on anything else. Size was listed as Standard. Check the measurements. Very Small. I ended up buying a King size on Amazon and this blends with my other pillows a lot better.

Too high/tall for me as a back sleeper
I sleep on my back and was looking for a pillow that I could mold to support underneath my neck without throwing my whole neck and head forward. This pillow was far too tall/overfilled for me, so my head was too high and my neck extended too far forward. I like the concept, but would have preferred it to be less filled. I would probably recommend this product to a side sleeper, but I haven't tried that out myself. By the way, I'm 5'4".

I love my sobakawa
I have used this product for many years. I won't use anything else. I love that you can put the pillow in the freezer or use it when you travel easily.

Best Buckwheat Pillow
I have had buckwheat pillows in the past. Buckwheat is excellent for proper neck alignment and neck comfort. However the buckwheat pillows I had weighed anywhere from 8 to 10 pounds and were very difficult to maneuver during sleep. The Sobakawa Buckwheat Pillow is the best pillow I ever owned. That is why we now have four of them. Two for me and two for my husband so that we can each have one to travel with. They are light, extremely supportive, comfortable and, overall, wonderful.

This pillow helps me sleep
This is my third "Buck wheat" pillow. They last me about 8 years. Brought my first one home from Japan and was so glad to see I could get one from BB&B. The whole process to order, pay and ship was a snap and it arrived two days before the promised date. Can't beat that folks. If you would like a good nights sleep without your head rocking back and forth and up and down, try the Buck pillow. Your head stays where you put it and you never wake up with a sweaty head, it stays nice and cool , all the natural way. Can not beat that with any man made pillow.

This is an absolute necessity for me! I cannot sleep without it. I have had trouble with my neck and back for years, even back surgery at one point, and this pillow is the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on. It keeps my neck in alignment so I do not wake up with headaches or a sore neck. I also have sleep apnea, and have no trouble even side-sleeping with this pillow wearing my bi-pap mask. Highly recommend to all!

To be honest when I first got this pillow I had an overwhelming feeling that I sadly was going to have to return it. I didn't think I was going to like the crunching sounds I was getting and the fact that it's not your typical soft as a cloud pillow, but none the less I was going to give it a try. Needless to say I'm so happy I did! Once your in a spot the pillow makes no noise and seriously has giving me the best sleep of my life...I actually hate sleeping on Cotten/feather pillows now! On a side note I do want to point out the fact that if you are looking for a super soft pillow this isn't for you it's soft in it's own way in the fact that the buckwheat forms to your face/neck shape giving you great support and a comfy feeling.

NIGHTMARE OF AN EXPERIENCE
From most of what I read on-line, and judging by my own brother's very successful and happy experience, I decided to buy this pillow. Didn't like the size nor the inability to find a pillow case that was even close to being a proper fit. The movement of the buckwheat, the crunching and the noise bothered me as well. My REAL issues were I have had both spine and neck surgeries in the past three years. After four hours of using this pillow, I had pain everywhere - my head, my neck, my shoulders and my upper arms. I put it on the floor and could not go back to sleep. It took three hours for these 'sensations' to dissipate. Very disappointed and returned it the next day. Over the past many years, I have had only one pillow that worked for me. It is thin, made of foam, in an egg crate style. Because it's so old, it needs to be replaced. I cannot find anything remotely close to it and had high hopes for the buckwheat pillow. If you have any spinal issues, this product is not for you!!
