TOTO Museum TOTOミュージアム
The museum dedicated to all things bathroom-related is a futuristic royal flush
TOTO is one of those names that might ring a bell but cannot quite be placed—until you visit the restroom, that is. TOTO is the largest producer of toilets, toilet seats, and bathroom products in the world. The company has set up a museum near Kokura Station in Kitakyushu to celebrate its achievements over the last century.
The company was founded in 1917 in Kitakyushu

How to Get There
From Kokura Station Bus Center, take the No. 21, 22, or 43 bus from stop 3 or the No. 25 bus from stop 4, and get off at Kifunemachi.
The only toilet museum you ever need to see
The name TOTO is an abbreviation of the two Japanese words forming its full name, Toyo Toki, which translates as Oriental Ceramics.
The company's most famous product is the TOTO Washlet, the high-tech Japanese toilet seat that is famous globally and that includes features such as a bidet, heated seat, and air fresheners.
The TOTO Museum is housed in a futuristic building with several exhibition rooms dedicated to telling the story of the company and the most innovative products across its history.
