If you’ve ever visited Japan or a fancy Japanese restaurant, you might have noticed their high-end toilets. Since the 1980s, Japanese toilet manufacturers have been raising the bar in the bathroom, designing tech-focused features that make every trip to the bathroom more hygienic and luxurious.
According to NPR, roughly 80% of Japanese households own a bidet, and they’re common in many other parts of the world, as well.

More than a few of our customers first fell in love with the Japanese toilets overseas and simply had to have one at home. For nearly three decades, Bio Bidet by Bemis has improved upon Japanese toilet and bidet designs to bring the tech and exceptional cleaning abilities of Japanese toilets to the US.
