Useful Information for Foreign Tourists in Sapporo: How to use “Coin Laundry” centers.

Cleaning your clothes.

Visitors staying several days in Sapporo are sure to find the coin-operated washing and drying machines, at self-service “Coin Laundry” shops around the city, to be very convenient. Laundry detergent is automatically added to the wash load, so all you have to bring with you is your laundry and some cash. Although there are money changers available at these centers, some of the machines do not accept 5,000 yen or 10,000 yen bills, so make sure to bring 100 yen coins with you. Some Sapporo locals also use the large capacity washers to wash their thick blankets and bed sheets. If you don’t understand something about how to use the machines, you can try asking one of the locals there.
