My first Japanese laundry: follow-up

Everything went well! I now know how to use a Japanese coin laundry!


Some tips:

  • To use a washing machine: put your laundry and some washing powder in the washing machine, close the lid, insert two 100 yen coins. (Washing cycle takes about 30 minutes.)
  • To use a dryer: put your clothes in the dryer, close the door, insert one 100 yen coin for every 10 minutes of drying.

That’s it. Not exactly rocket science. But I want to believe that seeing this would confuse anyone unfamiliar with this process:


So cheers to Mr B205 who taught me how to operate these machines! Doing laundry is now my favorite household chore 🙂

Oh, and there was a minor quake around noon today. I won’t ever get used to them.


Lose it… It means go crazy, nuts, insane, bonzo, no longer in possession of ones faculties, three fries short of a Happy Meal, wacko!*

I’ve been cooped out indoors all day and I’m running out of things to do. I cleaned the apartment, made and ate a “real” meal, put the trash out, prepared all the details for my new project, worked on the said project, insect-proofed the apartment, rearranged the furniture a bit, saw the typhoon come and go, watched a good movie (Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai), listened to some music, watched ten episodes of an anime series in a single sitting (Servamp), and made two sets of plans for tomorrow (one set for a rainy day and one set for a sunny day). And I’m tellin’ you, if this day doesn’t end soon, I’m gonna lose it.

I think it’s time for a nice and calming shower. And if that doesn’t help, I’m gonna do the laundry.

Or not: my mom is calling me on Skype! Yay!
