Want to join Toile on a tour of the Mr. Toilet House?

Mr. Toilet House(解憂齎) means a house to satisfy anxiety. The term originates from Haewooso(解憂所), a temple toilet.

Sim Jae-duck or Mr. Toilet destroyed his house where he lived for 30 years and built a house that looked like a toilet to celebrate the birth of the World Toilet Association.
The house was named Mr. Toilet House. It was constructed based on design by Go Gi-woong, an architect in March 2007.
The construction was finished on November 11, 2007.
Mr. Toilet House shows how important a toilet is to humans as well as the toilet philosophy and faith of Sim Jae-duck. After the death of Sim Jae-duck, his family donated the house to Suwon in July 2009 after his will. Suwon remodelled the house to establish the "Mr. Toilet House, Suwon's toilet Culture Exhibit Hall"
From October 30, 2010, it became available to ordinary citizens for free.
