a laundromat and hair salon all in one

Did you know they give awards out to laundromats? At least they do in Japan, where washing your clothes is apparently serious business.  This here is a 'concept laundromat' (and 2019's 'Laundromat of the Year') called Hull – a lovely place in Hyogo prefecture where you can both do your washing and get your hair cut. It's kind of genius if you think about it: getting a new do as you wait for your weekly load certainly beats killing time on your phone for an hour. If you've ever got a few errands to run in this particular part of Japan, you can find the well-designed space over here.
