The $400 air conditioner doesn’t fit. Dang. It looks like we’re going to have to wedge it in, and then tape around it with cardboard and duct tape. Classy. I really really hope it doesn’t fall out onto the balcony and go ka-plat. The window frame doesn’t even remotely fit.
The other choice was to install the wall-mounted AC unit, cut a hole in the wall for the ventilator tube, get the fan box installed on the balcony, and then take it all out when we leave. It was a lot more expensive than the little window unit we bought. Cardboard and duct-tape for the win!
I need A/C…the Japanese summer is getting hotter and hotter. Whew!
