The purpose of this study is to investigate thermal comfort for Japanese subjects with a view to energy conservation in buildings under hot and humid conditions. During the summer 172 Japanese college-age subjects wearing 0. 6 clo standard clothing were exposed under sedentary activity for 3 hours to 11 different thermal conditions in a climate chamber. It was found that the neutral temperature of Japanese was 79. 4 F (26. 3 degree C). High relative humidity was associated with a high percentage of uncomfortable subjects.
