People-First Innovation

People‐First Innovation: It’s our way of life.

A lot of life happens in the bathroom. So at TOTO, we design simple, brilliant, elegant solutions for basic human needs. Every TOTO innovation has a single motivation: helping people feel cleaner and more alive. That means a TOTO bathroom is always more than a routine. It’s a ritual where every innovation, every detail, is designed with you in mind.



TOTO technologies and innovations in engineering, performance design and sustainability are all done with people in mind. We’re committed to improving people’s lives and for over a century, we’ve made products that do just that.
