Laundry Day

Most people in Japan do not have clothes dryers.  Since electricity is very expensive and space is limited, it's easier and more cost effective to dry your clothes outside.  So, on a beautiful day, you will see laundry and futons hanging off balconies everywhere.

Why pay money to use a dryer, when the wind is free and things smell nicer when hung out ?

That said, I'm the only one in my neighbourhood who hangs out laundry in winter.
