Sleeping with children is usual thing in Japan

For somebody who is from western countries, it seems weird to see parents are sleeping with kids even they are 6 or 7 years old.

But it is not weird in Japan, actually it is normal style of sleeping.

It depends on the family how long parents and kids sleep together but usually we sleep together around early school year such as 6 to 7 years old.

It is one of our culture but it comes from Japanese housing condition too. Japanese housing is very small and sometimes children do not have their own room. Thus parents and children sleep together until children get grow.
