The world’s leading air conditioning manufacturer—Daikin.
The source of the company’s steady growth is its world-class air-conditioning technology developed in Japan.
Japan’s uniquely “diverse climate with distinct four seasons” as well as its harsh environment with
“limited resources” have honed Daikin’s air-conditioning technology and
made possible high-quality air conditioners that responds to various user needs.
Taking utmost care into details from development to manufacturing,
we are committed to “Perfecting the Air” around the world with the world’s top-class technology.
A Country of Diverse
Climate & Beautiful
Four Seasons - Japan
Located to the east of the Asian Continent, Japan has distinct four
seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Japan is an island country that spreads wide, north to south, surrounded by sea. Hokkaido in the north is in a subarctic zone with temperatures dropping far below zero degrees in the winters, whereas Okinawa in the south is in a subtropical zone with high temperatures all year round. Moreover, climate differs greatly depending on whether you are on the side of the Pacific Ocean or the Sea of Japan and in different regions.
Daikin air conditioners have evolved in response to such diverse climate.
Climate Brisk and Mild Spring March-May
Spring in Japan is a time when beautiful new green leaves sprout and cherry trees as well as flowers of various colors blossom. The temperature gradually rises after the cherry blossoms bloom in the end of March. The climate is mild and comfortable this time of the year.
Climate Hot and Humid Summer June-August
In many places, temperatures rise above 30°C in the daytime. With moist air
coming in from the south, humidity level rises and people feel the temperature higher than the actual
Therefore, people in Japan required dehumidification functionality in addition to cooling. With this, the humid and unpleasant summer season became comfortable.
Climate Autumn with Bright and Vivid Foliage September-November
After the summer heat cools down, you begin to feel chilliness in the
mornings and nights. We welcome the season of autumn leaves and harvesting.
We can enjoy the beauty of the clear sky and the brilliant red and yellow foliage.
Climate Severe Winter with Deep Snow December-February
On top of severely cold temperatures, heavy snow can be experienced in the
winter. Due to the seasonal wind, the Sea of Japan side will be covered with snow, while the Pacific
Ocean side becomes dry.
In order to overcome the severe and dry winter weather, air conditioners were required to humidify while powerfully heating the room.
Resource Energy Saving Technologies Originated from Resource Limited Country, Japan
Japan depends on other countries for energy supply, due to its limited resources. As a result, Japanese manufacturing has achieved high environmental performance, by focusing on fuel consumption in automobiles and energy consumption in household electronics.

Resource Air Conditioning Occupied Rooms Only
A conventional air conditioning system cools the entire building, including
In order to create comfortable environments using lesser energy, we came up with the concept of air conditioning necessary rooms only.
Resource Energy Saving through Inverter Technology
An inverter is an energy saving technology that eliminates wasteful
operation in the air conditioning by efficiently controlling the motor speed.
When compared to non-inverter air conditioners, inverter air conditioners consume approximately 30% less energy.
Japan’s diverse climate and limited resources led to the birth of the Japan Brand
Daikin will continue to deliver its “Perfecting the Air” technology worldwide for people in
various countries to live every day more comfortably.
