  • TOTO: Japan’s Industry Leader and Premier Supplier in Bathroomware

    The bathroom is an important part of the house, but not all bathrooms are the same. In the Philippines, most households use buckets and tabo or dipper. Others use a shower. Some have bidets installed in their bathroom. These days, advanced technologies are found not only in gadgets but in bathrooms as well.

    TOTO, one of the world’s premier bathroom suppliers, is set to make the bathroom experience in the Philippines better.

    With almost a century of innovations, TOTO has changed the understanding and perception of how a bathroom can be used and what it can be. The bathroomware brand aims to enrich the lifestyle of Filipinos through their exemplary products and services.

    TOTO offers a wide variety of bathroomware including toilets and lavatories

    TOTO’s Roots

    TOTO was founded in 1917 by Kazuchika Okura in a commitment to give people a comfortable bathroom space while preserving and protecting the environment by saving water and energy.

    Throughout their expansion, they made a mark as an industry leader and a premier supplier of plumbing-related products in Japan.

    TOTO arrived in the Philippines almost 20 years ago with the idea to bring quality bathroomware to the country. They aim to educate people about their products as well as introduce TOTO to a larger scale.

    By using a people-centered design, they bring trends in architecture and extensive research together through their product lineup. Their products are designed to improve the comfort, convenience, and cleanliness of residential and non-residential spaces.


    While their products are popular in Japan and are widely-used in stations, hotels, and spas, you’ll also find their products in different parts of the world. In the Philippines, several high-end hotels use TOTO products as their bathroomware. TOTO has also satisfied many of their patrons based on the TOTO policy to help people live comfortable, healthy, and an ecologically friendly life by continuously offering exemplary products and services.

    The brand is also considered as a standard item by some countries around the world.
