Panasonic is most well known for its electrical products such as TVs, rechargeable batteries, and cameras. The company moved into the air purifier market around 50 years ago and it now manufactures and sells multiple lines of air purifiers to people all over the world.

As for its manufacturing locations, with it being such a large company, it conducts its manufacturing in multiple countries around the world. At the time of writing this article, Panasonic’s air purifiers are made in China, Thailand, and possibly in Japan.

While it does look like Panasonic manufactures some of its air purifiers at its facility in Japan, I couldn’t find out which models are made there. So, if you are looking for a Japanese air purifier, then I’d recommend reaching out to the company to ensure that you get a model that was made in Japan.
