10 Best Tried and True Japanese Dehumidifiers in 2022 (Mitsubishi, Sharp, and More)

Having a stuffy or musty home is every homeowner's or renter's nightmare. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it could lead to mold, mildew, and odors. While we can't lessen our water usage from doing the laundry, cooking, showering, or using the dishwasher, we can control the humidity levels in our home through a dehumidifier. Using one avoids condensation build-up during winter and decreases the hot and sticky feeling in summer.


Now, it may seem like a lot of science (and math) is involved in getting a dehumidifier, with the need to consider humidity levels and room size. Additionally, Japanese dehumidifiers come with various features, such as a clothes-drying feature if you decide to hang up your laundry indoors. On top of that, with different types, such as compressor-style and hybrid dehumidifiers, all from different brands like Sharp and Iris Ohyama, it can be difficult to choose the best one for your needs.


To figure out the best Japanese dehumidifier, we gathered the 32 best-selling products on e-commerce sites popular in Japan, like Amazon, Rakuten, and Yahoo! Shopping, and tested them all.


We tested each product for the following:

  • Dehumidifying strength
  • Clothes-drying ability
  • Ease of use
  • Quietness

Then, based on our tests, we ranked the 10 best Japanese dehumidifiers in 2022. Check out our buying guide to see which one best suits your needs!

Why Do You Need a Dehumidifier?

Why Do You Need a Dehumidifier?

A dehumidifier's purpose is to maintain healthy and balanced humidity levels in a room by removing any excess moisture in the air. They work much like your typical air conditioner, wherein moist air is drawn in by the dehumidifier's fan and condenses as it passes through its cooling coils.


The condensed moisture drips from the coils into a basin or could be pumped out to a drain. Drier air is then released back into the room.


Dehumidifiers are not only essential in the summer if you live in humid regions, but can also help reduce condensation on your windows during the winter.


Additionally, there are two types of Japanese dehumidifiers: simple dehumidifiers and clothes-drying dehumidifiers. The difference between the two lies in whether or not they have a built-in fan for drying clothes.


Most homes in Japan don't have a dryer, meaning that people either hang up their laundry to dry outside or indoors if it's raining. However, since Japan also gets a lot of rainfall, further contributing to humidity, clothes-drying dehumidifiers can greatly help keep humidity low and dry clothes quicker.

How to Choose a Japanese Dehumidifier – Buying Guide

It's important to choose a dehumidifier that fits your needs and expectations, such as which room you want to lower humidity levels in and your ability to drain the collected water. There are also automatic settings, filter maintenance, and temperature limit to consider.

Choose a Dehumidifying Method Based on Your Needs

Choose a Dehumidifying Method Based on Your Needs

Dehumidifiers come in various types, with some suiting different situations better than others. Choose a dehumidifier based on the season you want to use it.


We found that compressor-type dehumidifiers were better at removing moisture from the air. from the air. Since these products don't use a heater, they can dehumidify without raising the room's temperature, making them perfect for the summer.


On the other hand, desiccant-type dehumidifiers work best to prevent condensation in the winter. These dehumidifiers are built with a heater inside, meaning that they use more energy and also increase ambient temperature, meaning they're not the best for the summer.


Finally, there's a hybrid dehumidifier, which combines the aforementioned compressor and desiccant types. While these tend to be more expensive, they can be used year-round, helping to reduce humidity during all seasons.

Choose a Capacity Based on Room Size

Choose a Capacity Based on Room Size

It might seem obvious, but smaller dehumidifiers are built to work in smaller spaces and larger ones for larger spaces. Smaller humidifiers, at best, can collect up to four to six liters, or 1.1 to 1.6 gallons, of water and are best for rooms about 255 to 314 square feet. The standard living room size in the US is around 340 square feet, which can be covered by a dehumidifier with a dehumidification area of about 315 to 390 square feet, or 1.6 to 2.1 gallons.


But, did you also know this varies by the building material, too? A dehumidifier set up in a concrete-type building will be about twice as effective over a larger space than in a wood-type building.


Drying clothes in a room actually brings up the humidity and moisture levels in a room, so if you plan on using the humidifier to dry your clothes, then it's best to buy a model that is built for a room that's a little bigger than than the room you will be using to dry your clothes in.

Wooden homes are not as airtight as buildings made from concrete, effectively reducing the dehumidification capacity. However, in recent years, wooden homes have gotten more airtight than in the past. If your home has decent airtightness, this shouldn't be a problem.

Adjustable Fan Blades Are a Must-Have for Drying Clothes

Adjustable Fan Blades Are a Must-Have for Drying Clothes

If you plan on drying your clothes, look for models that allow you to adjust the fan's direction.


These products can send air horizontally or vertically, allowing you to dry your clothes efficiently, no matter the size. In recent years, features like Mitsubishi Electric's "Indoor Clothes Drying Auto Move Eye" can send air with pinpoint accuracy towards your laundry. During our tests, we found that Mitsubishi Electric's products could quickly and efficiently dry clothes.


Additionally, products that were able to dry clothes quickly often had a humidity sensor. If you're looking for a dehumidifier to dry your clothes, look for a humidity sensor.


Finally, higher-end models have a fully automatic mode, where the dehumidifier can detect damp clothes and adjust its fan to blow air in that direction.

Look for a Water Tank With a Capacity of 0.8 Gallons or More

Look for a Water Tank With a Capacity of 0.8 Gallons or More

Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and store it in a water tank, which means that if you use a dehumidifier when it's particularly humid or when drying clothes, the tank will fill up quickly, which will need to be disposed of to make more room.


If your dehumidifier has a small tank capacity, you'll need to dispose of the water frequently. Choose a dehumidifier with a water tank capacity of 0.8 gallons or more (3 liters) to save time and effort.


However, if your dehumidifier can connect directly to a drain pipe, it can dehumidify constantly around the clock without requiring you to dispose of the water. Make sure you can connect the hose to a drain in either your bathroom or balcony before purchasing this type of dehumidifier.

While this depends on how long you use your dehumidifier for and the size of the room you keep it in, if you want to minimize having to dispose of the collected water as much as possible, look for a product with a capacity of collecting 0.8 gallons a day. Recent products tend to follow this rule, minimizing the frequency of how often you'll need to dispose of the water.

Look For Easily Removable Water Tanks

Look For Easily Removable Water Tanks

Since dehumidifiers store water inside, the tank can easily get moldy if it's not cleaned frequently. If you plan on using your dehumidifier daily during humid seasons, consider how easy it is to take care of your dehumidifier.


Because the water tank is something you'll need to remove frequently, it's important that the tank itself can easily be removed and that disposing of the collected water isn't complicated.


Finally, the filter on the backside of the dehumidifier requires regular maintenance, so it's important to consider how easy the filter can be removed as well. We tested each product for their ease of use, including these points, so be sure to take this into consideration as well.

Dehumidifiers can get moldy if you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain during the summer, so be careful.

Look for Wheels if You Want to Use It in Different Rooms

Look for Wheels if You Want to Use It in Different Rooms

You may want to use a dehumidifier in several rooms throughout the day. We found that mobility was an important aspect of how easy a dehumidifier is to use.


Large dehumidifiers can get heavy, especially with large water tanks. While some dehumidifiers have a carrying handle, look for dehumidifiers with wheels to make it easy to move them around to different rooms.

Look For Convenient Features Like Deodorizers and Internal Dryers

Certain products have different features. We've compiled some particularly convenient features to consider in this section.

Look for Deodorizing Features to Suppress Musty Smells

Look for Deodorizing Features to Suppress Musty Smells

High humidity can make rooms smell stale. Products with deodorizing features can help prevent your room from smelling musty, especially if you're hanging up laundry indoors.


Products like Sharp's Plasmacluster and Panasonic's Nanoe even use negative ions for their deodorizing properties, while other makers still claim that their dehumidifiers can disinfect surfaces or even suppress the effects of harmful substances in the air.

Internal Dryers Can Prevent Internal Mold and Mildew Growth

Internal Dryers Can Prevent Internal Mold and Mildew Growth

As we've mentioned earlier, dehumidifiers work by collecting and storing water inside, which can lead to mildew or mold growth in the tank.


Internal dryers can automatically remove any moisture inside the dehumidifier, helping prevent mildew and mold, and saving you time in the long run.

Quiet Mode Is Essential for Nighttime

Quiet Mode Is Essential for Nighttime

If you plan on using a dehumidifier in a small apartment or your bedroom, the noise it makes might be distracting when you're trying to sleep. Look for dehumidifiers with a quiet mode or night mode to reduce noise so it doesn't keep you up at night.


During our tests, we found that on average, dehumidifiers on standard mode had a noise level of 43 decibels, but this was cut down to roughly 32 decibels on average on quiet mode, greatly reducing noise.

Choose a Dehumidifier Based on the Manufacturer

In this section, we'll break down the features of some major dehumidifier manufacturers.

Panasonic: Unique Technologies like Nanoe and Hybrid Dehumidifiers

Panasonic: Unique Technologies like Nanoe and Hybrid Dehumidifiers

Panasonic is a major Japanese home appliances manufacturer. Its dehumidifiers are unique because they feature Panasonic's proprietary Nanoe (pronounced nano-E) technology, which helps disinfect clothes while dehumidifying.


Panasonic's dehumidifiers are also equipped with several modes such as rain mode and winter mode. Moreover, its clothing care mode can disinfect, deodorize, and dehumidify closets. Finally, Panasonic's dehumidifiers are built as hybrid-style dehumidifiers, providing a strong dehumidifying power throughout the year.

Panasonic's dehumidifiers are not only great at dehumidifying, but also convenient, often equipped with wheels, making them great for moving around the home and using in different rooms.

Corona: Compressor-Style Dehumidifiers for the Summer

Corona: Compressor-Style Dehumidifiers for the Summer

Corona is a Japanese appliances manufacturer that also makes water heaters and oil heaters. Its compressor-style dehumidifiers are great for the summer since they don't heat up the air around them.


Through our tests, we found that Corona's dehumidifiers boasted an unparalleled dehumidifying ability, quickly removing humidity from rooms at impressive speeds.


Corona's dehumidifiers are also equipped with a speed laundry drying mode as well as a thick clothing mode that can help dry sweatshirts and jeans quickly. While Corona's dehumidifiers are often larger in size, they're usually equipped with wheels, making it easy to move them around.


Mitsubishi Electric: Top-Tier Dehumidifying Strength

Mitsubishi Electric: Top-Tier Dehumidifying Strength

Mitsubishi Electric's dehumidifiers are among the best in dehumidifying ability, proven in our dehumidification power tests. We also believe that its "indoor clothing drying move eye" feature, which detects how damp your clothes are, automatically sending air in that direction, contributed to this result.


While the manufacturer doesn't have an extensive lineup of products, Mitsubishi Electric specializes in dehumidifiers for drying clothes. With both wheels and a handle, Mitsubishi Electric's dehumidifiers can be easily moved around.

Sharp: Plasmacluster Technology Helps Keep Air Fresh

Sharp: Plasmacluster Technology Helps Keep Air Fresh

How We Tested the Dehumidifiers

How We Tested the Dehumidifiers

We gathered the 32 best-selling dehumidifiers available via major Japanese e-commerce sites (Amazon, Rakuten, Yahoo! Shopping) and tested them all.


We defined a great dehumidifier as one that can make a room nice and dry, allowing you to forget how humid it is outside. For the sake of fairness, we only used standard version models for our tests.


We tested each product for the following:

  1. Dehumidifying strength
  2. Clothes-drying ability
  3. Ease of use
  4. Quietness

Test ① Dehumidifying Strength

Test ① Dehumidifying Strength

First, we tested each dehumidifier for its dehumidifying power, which is the most important aspect to consider when buying one.


Methodology:

We visited the Saitama Industrial Technology Center, located north of Tokyo to use their constant temperature and humidity chamber. We set the temperature to 25℃ (77°F) and the humidity to 80%, and set each humidifier to strong mode, then checked the humidity inside the chamber after 30 minutes. We also measured the amount of water collected in the water tank after the test.


We evaluated each product using the methodology above and gave high scores to products that lowered the humidity inside the chamber effectively.

Test ② Clothes-Drying Ability

Test ② Clothes-Drying Ability

In Japan, late June to mid or late July is generally the rainy season. Since most people don't have a dryer in their homes and hang up their laundry, during the rainy season, most people hang up their laundry indoors, and using a dehumidifier can help speed up the drying process. Because of this, we tested each dehumidifier for how well it dried our clothes.


Methodology:

Similar to the dehumidifying strength test, we used a constant temperature and humidity chamber, set the temperature to 25℃ (77°F) and the humidity to 80%, and hung up 500 grams of damn clothing inside the chamber. We then set each dehumidifier to strong clothes-drying mode, and checked the results after 30 minutes. We measured how dry the 500 grams of clothing were.


Using the methodology above, we measured the weight of our clothing, with higher scores given to products if the clothing became lighter after 30 minutes.

Test ③ Ease of Use

Test ③ Ease of Use

Dehumidifiers require regular maintenance, as well as require you to frequently dispose of the collected water.


For this test, we evaluated each product for how easy they are to use, based on the following:

  • Water tank capacity
  • Whether or not it has wheels
  • How heavy the dehumidifier is
  • How many areas require maintenance
  • Whether or not it has a timer

Test ④ Noise Level

Test ④ Noise Level

Finally, we tested to see how noisy the dehumidifiers were.


We placed a noise meter at a distance of 20 inches from each dehumidifier, ran them at low and high power modes, and measured how much noise they produced.
