TOTO Ltd. based in Kitakyushu, Japan, was founded in 1917. It is a company. It is the world's largest toilet manufacturer. It has 20,000 employees, two-thirds of Japan's bathroom market, seven factories in Japan and a presence in 16 countries. The name "TOTO" is an abbreviation of the two Japanese words forming its full name, Toyo Toki (Oriental Porcelain). The company invented and patented the Washlet. The TOTO Washlet is an innovative toilet seat that features an integrated bidet. The bidet feature activates at the push of a button on the seat or a remote control; a small wand extends from the back of the rim and begins to jet water towards the backside of the user. *** Local caption *** Toto factory in Kitakyushu.
