Is satin dry cleanable? Or is it better to handwash?

What does it say on the care label? Dry clean to be sure - my satin shirts are dry clean.

The tag is in Japanese. It's a vintage satin jacket.

You can get a free app on your phone which you can hover over different language menus and the like and it will translate it for you? Might work with the care label?

Sorry I can't remember what the app is called (I don't have it, but I need to get it!) think is by google, might be wrong though.

Take it to a dry cleaner and ask them ,Im a retired dry cleaner and I would say d/c but they will no doubt get you to sign a disclaimer as it's vintage. I'm very pro washing stuff though and if it was mine I would probably wash it with a delicate detergent but I have 20 years experience and I not saying you should wash it . A good dry cleaners will happily talk it through with you and decide the best option for you ( I always want to feel things to give my opinion )

Dry clean - why would you risk anything else?
