    Room number in mailing address

    This is about writing a mailing adress of a Japanese person in an official document submitted to an American agency. Should I write the room number before or after the name of the building when you write a mailing address?
    Also, a sharp (#) is necessary before the room number?

    (Buidling name), #103 (room number), 3-7-2, (City name), (Ward name), Tokyo, Japan, ZIP code

    not a teacher

    The number of the apartment unit(room?) should come first, followed by the building name and number, the street, city, etc., in order of scale.
    Presumably, there would be a place in the building on the Ground Floor where all the letter boxes are located and the mails are put.

    Re: Room number in mailing address

    It should be "mail". "Mail" is not countable.

    I would take 'the above person' to mean 'tedmc' instead of 'MikeNewYork'.

    I know. That's why I asked him whether he thinks your reply is correct.
    (I don't mean to offend you, but I need a reply from an American person to be sure.)
