Toyone is located in the extreme northeast corner of Aichi Prefecture. Most of the village is within the borders of the Tenryū-Okumikawa Quasi-National Park. The reservoir from Sakuma Dam in Shizuoka Prefecture extends into the village. Shintoyone Dam is also located within the borders of Toyone. Chausuyama, at 1415 meters, on the border between Aichi and Nagano is the highest point in Aichi Prefecture.
Toyone Village was established on October 1, 1889. In 1955, the rising waters of the Sakuma Dam from neighboring Shizuoka Prefecture flooded the central inhabited portion of Toyone, forcing the relocation of over one third of the village inhabitants. On November 27, 2005, the village of Tomiyama was merged with Toyone.
The primary industry of Toyone is small-scale forestry, and seasonal tourism.
