Laundry Near Yokohama Station?
- I am an American who will be staying at a hotel by Yokohama Sta. for 9
days later this month for a business trip. I have been to that hotel
& area several times before. But I speak nor read any Japanese --
Can anyone tell me if there is a laudramat near Yokohama Sta. that I
could use to wash my clothes?

use the hotel laundry service.
If you really need to find a "laudramat" then the Japanese word that you
need to know is "coin laundry". All Japanese people will understand this.
If you ask at the front desk at the Hotel they might know, but the area
around Yokohama station is pretty built up so I can't think of where
there would be one.
"Coin laundries" tend to be found in areas with cheap housing as most
people have their own washing machine (even if it is out on the verenda)
so you may have walk quite a distance from the station or take the train
one stop in any direction to find one.

>So long as you don't make the mistake of pronouncing 'laundry'
anything like the standard english way, which (in our limited
experience, ie once at a campsite) may be met with blank
incomprehension. 'Randori' is what you want!
- Yokorelo, thank you for the good information on coin laundries near
Yokohama Sta (msg # 1554). You mentioned a very good fact: The coin
laundry may not have dryers (drying machine). For me, a dryer is an
absolute must! I cannot hang my clothes to dry in my hotel room.
Your suggestion for me to visit a dry cleaning store is very good. I
wish I knew where such a store was in Totuska-ku. When I come to
Japan, I stay in a hotel by Yokohama Sta. but I go to Totsuka Sta.
each morning for work. However, I speak no Japanese. I doubt that
the workers at a dry cleaning store would be able to speak English.
So I must good my laundry to my hotel. 1,000 JPY for each pair of
casual dress pants or blue jeans!!!!!!!
