Itokani is a multi-island Governor city in northeastern New World in the Zeta region owned by MinecraftYoshi26. It was founded on the opening of the Zeta server, on February 29, 2020. The city's name originates from the Fijian word for 'friend'. It is located in the Senikau region.

Construction of the city began on the island of Karakarawa. Itokani was recognized as a town after it received the rank of Mayor on April 8, 2020.

History

With the opening of Zeta, MinecraftYoshi26 wanted to start a town in the Zeta region to start a true tropical island, especially in comparison to his Governor-ranked town of Hummingbird Islands. He also wanted to be near a coral reef.

Before the opening of Zeta, the island that is now Karakarawa was selected as his first build site to begin Itokani. Solely, Karakarawa was used to evaluate Itokani for the Mayor rank and received it on April 8, 2020, with endorsements from cal76 and chiefbozx. mine_man_ was declared the deputy mayor of the town for the promotion of the town on the same day due to his hand in constructing the Karakarawa Island Community Theater and the Itokani Drama Studio.

Following the completion of Karakarawa, the next settlement was northeast at the island of Manumanu. The creation of the island was made with a vision of creating a forested island filled with various fauna. On May 3, 2020, Manumanu was completed. Vinataka, the island with Mount Vakatiki, was created next and completed on May 11, 2020.

With the completion of Vinataka, the next island to be settled was Koroturaga (formerly known as Yanuyanu); however, zb7 had made a claim on the nearby island of Waitui without knowing the plans for Itokani. After reaching out, the land was given to the town on May 13, 2020.

Itokani was put up for Senator on June 13, 2020, and was approved for promotion on June 26, 2020.

Koroturaga was completed on August 1, 2020. Itokani's town hall was moved from its temporary location at the Karakarawa Blathers Memorial Museum to its permanent location on Koroturaga.

With the construction of Waitui, the first links to other city were created on August 9, 2020, via Hummingbird Boat Lines' Line 49, the Magnolia Line, with service to Kantō, Malosa, and Sand. Around the same time, the Itokani Local Transit boats were rerouted to the hub on the island of Waitui instead of Karakarawa.

During the construction of Waitui, the island of Nimataka was officially claimed for construction on August 20, 2020. Following this claim, major construction on the town was temporarily halted due to the production of The Amazing Race 11. On September 3, 2020, the city was submitted for Governor as to submit at the same time as KyleFrb for his town of Oparia. Both towns were promoted to Governor on September 16, 2020.

The island of Vakasuka for Vakasuka International Airport was officially claimed on September 17, 2020, beginning construction on the second mode of transport out of the city. Following that claim, construction in the southeast began with the island of Teivaki a day later. The island was finished on September 21, 2020.

Sulua was the eighth island claim for the town on September 26, 2020.
