TOTO Museum Logo

The logo embodies a soft architectural form that is designed to resemble drops of water. Water turns to rain and provides the earth with moisture. It protects and nurtures all forms of life. The logo expresses TOTO’s message of commitment to developing an environment that brings richness to people and the earth each and every day.

Planned as part of a project to commemorate the 100th anniversary of TOTO’s founding in 2017, the TOTO Museum will exhibit and introduce valuable materials about TOTO’s history of building a culture rooted in everyday life, and manufacturing ideas that it has passed on to this day. TOTO aims to promote the appeal of this complex as a point of contact with visiting customers and clients, and position it as a landmark that disseminates information about the TOTO brand from Kokura, the birthplace of the company, to people all around the world.


          The TOTO Museum will house a collection of facilities, including the present TOTO History Archive, the Kitakyushu Showroom, the Training Center, and a hall. The space for exhibitions in the Showroom will be made about 1.4 times wider, while that of the TOTO Museum (present History Archive) will be made four times more expansive. TOTO also plans to exhibit the first modular bath in Japan it supplied in 1964 to the Hotel New Otani at the TOTO Museum. In addition to showing the role TOTO has played in the history of plumbing and the evolution of plumbing culture, TOTO will seek to fully utilize this new complex as a place for conveying the company’s origins, present, and future.
