I'm going backpacking for a month in Japan and I plan to pack lightly. So I have couple of questions about how I can wash my clothes in Japan.
I expect laundromats to be quite common in big cities but what about little towns in rural area (for example, Hokkaido)?
I'm used to washing my clothes in hot water, but I've read that clothes are washed in cold water in Japan. How different is from what I'm used to? Do I have to use different detergents and/or in a different way?
I asked couple of questions here but since they are all pretty much related to the same topic I don't think it would be useful splitting this question.
