Finally doing some laundry. A wash cost 200 yen. About 2 bucks. Not great but not bad.
The dryer, on the other hand, costs 100 yen for 10 minutes. So, around 3 bucks to dry a full load. Ouch. (No wonder everyone hangs their stuff out to dry.)
But, it only costs 40 yen for laundry detergent and it's a cool little pouch you just toss into the load and it dissolves. So, I guess that’s cool.
