tatami room

Do you know Tatami? It is traditional Japanese mat made from rush grass and is used in Japanese style rooms. A student of mine loves Japanese tatami mats very much. He says his dream is to build a small Japanese house with Tatami mats and a bathroom with an Onsen on a big farm. And there you could watch sunsets from the Onsen and take a rest on the Tatami. At first, I couldn't believe what he was saying because his work is far from farming now. But I hope his dream will come true some day.
