Taking web accessibility as an important theme in terms of delivering information on the Internet, TOYOTA TSUSHO FASHION EXPRESS strives to engage in homepage administration with accessibility in mind. We are committed to working continuously to ensure that the homepage of TOYOTA TSUSHO FASHION EXPRESS should be able to have its visitors access information that they need and be user-friendly as well.
