Air Conditioners


Usually air conditioners in Japan have remote controls to change the settings. Here are the useful words and kanji to help you self-navigate your aircon controls.
Aircons often have dry functions, which take the water from the air, dehumidifying the room (which is useful in summer and the rainy seasons).
They also can have a 'warm' function, and heat your room during the winter.
