Located 2.5 km northeast of Toba Port, Toshijima, is the largest of Ise Bay's islands. The island's three hamlets are home to around 1,598 people (as of February 29, 2016). Almost 80% of the islanders are engaged in commercial fishing. The island preserves unique traditions, such as the system of neyako, and festivals held to pray for safety at sea and good catches of fish. The island has historic sites associated with Yoshitaka Kuki, who led a band of seafaring warriors during the Sengoku period (roughly between the 15th and early 17th centuries), when civil war affected most of the country.
