HistoryEdit

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.
