Japanese air conditioners are generally much more complicated than those found in countries like the United States but the guide should be able to not only give you the basics but explain some of the more specific functions and settings as well. Before we get into the specifics of the settings it’s important to know that window unit are very uncommon in Japan. Most air conditioners and heaters are wall mounted and controlled with a remote and have no buttons on the actual unit itself. They usually function as both air conditioners and heaters depending on what time of year you are staying and require very minimal cleaning and maintenance.
Although some more costly air conditioners may have added more advanced settings this should cover most people’s needs. If there’s something that you can’t figure out feel free to contact Wabi Sabi and we will be more than happy to assist you and to improve this entry for future readers.
