Itokani is multi-island senator-ranked city in northeastern portion of the 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, named after the Fijian word for 'blue'. Itokani 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.

Prior to 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 an vision of creating an 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.
