We conducted a survey among 1,800 tenant workers living in the building. This survey revealed that installing sanitary products in toilets reduces female workers’ anxiety about sudden menstruation and contributes to improving psychological safety and labor productivity.

Sanitary products were installed free of charge in the common toilets of office buildings, which had lagged behind compared to university facilities and commercial facilities. The target is toilets in common areas on office floors in buildings owned and managed by three Tokyo Tatemono Group companies nationwide. *

* Past efforts *
Starting in 2021, Tokyo Tatemono will be participating in the LAQDA Project, a communication design project based on the installation of sanitary products carried out by the Watatate Living Research Institute. , we have been conducting a demonstration experiment in which sanitary products were installed free of charge in public toilets.
In recent years, there has been an increase in the installation of sanitary products in women’s restrooms in university facilities, commercial facilities, etc., but in office buildings, restrooms are generally shared areas, and permission from the building manager is required for installation. In addition to this, the maintenance burden is also large, making it difficult for tenants to install their own sanitary products. Another issue in the workplace is that there is a lack of understanding of the problems women face with menstruation, and it is difficult to reach consensus on the establishment of such systems. The Tokyo Tatemono Group leverages its position as a building owner and manager to promote DE&I by solving this issue by installing sanitary products free of charge as part of tenant services and holding awareness seminars to promote understanding of menstruation. We aim to
*Conducting a survey regarding women’s menstruation*
According to a survey conducted in March 2024 (n = 1,800 people (of which 1,207 people have experienced menstruation)), 98.2% of people who have experienced menstruation said, “It increases psychological safety,” indicating that this initiative reduces women’s anxiety about sudden menstruation and contributes to creating a work environment where female workers can work with peace of mind. Even in a survey for people who have never experienced menstruation, 88.6% of respondents were positive about installing sanitary products in the toilet. In addition, 65.3% of respondents answered, “I don’t know how to support menstruation,” and 45.0% said, “Even if I see a woman who looks sick, I hesitate to approach her because I feel like it might be sexual harassment.” %, and we were reminded of the importance of creating a work environment that makes it easy to talk about menstruation.

As of June 2024, installation has been completed in six office buildings, including the Tokyo Tatemono Yaesu Building (Chuo-ku, Tokyo), and installation has been scheduled for four properties in the Tokyo metropolitan area after July 1st. Masu. We plan to gradually expand the system to properties in rural areas, and proceed with the installation of the system in properties that are jointly owned with a third party or properties that are solely managed by a building owner, if the building owner agrees.
In addition, we are planning to install the “T-LOGI” series of logistics facilities developed by Tokyo Tatemono in some properties, and we are considering expanding into a wide range of assets other than office buildings in the future.

*About My Living Research Institute*
With the desire to create social facilities that allow people to use sanitary products whenever they want, we started the LAQDA Project, a communication design project inspired by the installation of sanitary products. Since 2019, we have been conducting research on installing sanitary products in office toilets. Based on the survey results, we believe that in order for the installation of sanitary products in toilets to become widespread, it is necessary to have a deep understanding of DE&I within each organization, and we hold an event where a diverse range of people, including students and working adults, think about the installation of sanitary products and DE&I together. We are focusing on DE&I awareness activities, such as providing programs and unique sanitary product cases. Selected by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as a subsidy operator for Femtech, etc. support service demonstration project expenses in FY2020.
