Washing in Japan
I'll be honest I barely know how to operate things in my household. My landlord showed me how to turn on the washer. We don't speak the same language so I just memorized the 3 button sequence she showed me.

Does anyone have tips and tricks to washing diapers in Japanese washing machines?

I live on base so I don't have a problem but from what I am hearing it is best to use flats and/or prefolds. You can post a pic of your washer buttons on Facebook or the local yardsale page and have someone translate the buttons for you.

Re: Washing in Japan
Another mama posted about having difficulty with washing her diapers in Japan. We are going back to visit family, and I was thinking about switching to cloth. It is expected I will have our son out of diapers by one year!!!! I'm afraid they won't have disposables big enough for him there.

Did you figure anything out? I'm going to have the same problem soon, but with my washing machine in China.
