  1. Japanese toilets are taking over the world. After many years in the concrete butt plug, I take a seemingly endless 30-hour flight back, and drive for miles through the boring backwoods of ‘Merica. Finally, I get to my favorite bar, and proceed to get smashed. I go to the men’s room, pull up the cover and there it is – those four all too familiar letters: TOTO!

    In America, TOTO toilets have a deserved reputation of being able to flush the Trans-Pacific Cable of poop without clogging. Even though TOTO prices are nearly double that of American Standard*, having a bar toilet that never backs up seems to be a good deal.

    *American Standard, who also owns Crane Plumbing,
    was bought in June 2013 by the Japanese firm Lixil who
    sells the main competing brand of Japanese toilets
    under the “INAX” brandname.
