Laundry facilities: Because there is no coin laundry available on-site, and because local coin laundries are considered too expensive, Yamasa has installed a washing machine in every apartment for student use. At this stage we are unable to also provide a dryer, though all of the apartments have a There is a covered balcony at the rear of the apartment. Bicycles are usually parked in front of the apartment entrance (if a ground floor apartment) or at the side stairs (if you are living on the second storey) Free car parking is available.
Telephone and Internet: Any student living here has internet access (via a fiber-optic LAN). There is no telephone provided inside the apartment, students will need to obtain a lease or rent a line or use computer-to-phone software using the internet connection. Yamasa will assist you if you need a telephone line installed in your apartment. Most students prefer to use the cheaper option of handheld cellular phones. For making calls overseas, the Yamasa II building, Yamasa Villa, or internet phones are the best local options.
