For many people from Hawaii who have visited Japan, one of the things they remember from their trip is the TOTO Washlet, an electronic bidet that cleans you after using the bathroom.

It’s not surprising why people appreciate the washlet; after all, TOTO is the number one brand in Japan. For those that have installed a washlet in their personal homes, their reviews have almost always been enthusiastically favorable. So in order to understand why the washlet is so common in Japan, here are some features and benefits that people will simply love.


With the TOTO Washlet, you can change the seat, water and dryer temperatures with a remote control. The remote can also remember all your settings so two people can access their personal settings with a simple push of a button.

You can reduce toilet paper use and help the environment with a washlet. In the U.S. alone, people use 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper a year — that’s equivalent to 15 million trees. Toilet paper is also the leading cause of clogged pipes and overflowing toilets.

If you value hygiene, you will appreciate the clean feeling after every use. The feeling is quite soothing and feels good for those with sensitive skin from excessive wiping, or if you have hemorrhoids or rashes. The washlet can even relieve the symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases and urinary tract infections.


The automated functions make it a joy to have. From a built-in air deodorizer that refreshes the air to a toilet that takes any foul odors away, it will be much appreciated.

The self-cleaning function makes maintenance very easy.

Automatic open and close seats are also available on select models. To top it off, the automatic air dryer will leave you feeling refreshed after you’re done. Newer models feature electrolyzed water, which is a proven disinfectant, that will clean the nozzle and mist bowl after every use — killing bacteria and keeping your toilet sanitized.
