Aside from the tour, Toto has been in the news for many reasons. One of them is the fact that Toto is a Japanese company and a lot of their products are imported from Japan. Toto toilets are popular in both Japan and the U.S.
Toto has a unique toilet design. It is designed to jet out water from the rear of the toilet when the user sits on it. The rear warm water washing feature is another unique feature. The company also offers two-piece toilets and one-piece toilets. Several different models of Toto toilets are available. The two-piece ones are more comfortable for most users and offer more storage space. The two-piece models have a wide range of features and are suitable for households with up to six people.
A few years ago, TOTO was a small business. The company’s main objective was to sell golf equipment, which it did by supplying golf courses with golf carts. But the popularity of their products soon spreads far beyond the golf course. Toto now sells toilets all over the world and makes $311 million in its fiscal year ending March 2017. In addition to the hotel market, TOTO has also become popular in department stores and is used in many other places.
