Toto Ltd. (TOTO株式会社, TŌTŌ kabushiki gaisha), stylized as TOTO, is the world's largest toilet manufacturer. It was founded in 1917, and is known for developing the Washlet and derivative products. The company is based in Kitakyushu, Japan, and owns production facilities in nine countries. The name "Toto" is an abbreviation of the two Japanese words forming its full name, Tōyō Tōki (東洋陶器, Oriental Ceramics).
The Toto washlet is a 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. Different Washlet models have features such as air fresheners, seat heaters, and dryers.
