Three Mushrooms

The toilets appear to be three mushrooms that sprouted in the wooded area around Yoyogi-Hachiman shrine.
Even though they are built along Yamate-Dori, a main thoroughfare, they are at the foot of a flight of stairs leading up to the shrine, to create the impression of mushrooms that are in harmony with the forest in the background.
Having three individual toilets with space in between makes them easy to navigate, and with the connecting paths open at both ends it is easy to see one’s surroundings, helping to prevent crime.
There is also ample space within each toilet, with one equipped with traditional accessibility functions for older persons and parents with children, as well as one for women and one for men, making this a public toilet facility that can be used by anyone.

MAINTENANCE

MAINTENANCE

Public toilets must stand the test of time. In addition to our focus on designing impressive facilities, we at THE TOKYO TOILET believe that providing a comfortable user experience through cleaning and maintenance is equally important. The Nippon Foundation, the Shibuya City Government and the Shibuya Tourism Association will work together to maintain these facilities. We will also work with professional toilet inspectors to periodically survey the toilets to ensure we are providing the best user experience.
