Sumitomo Toyo was the heir and chef of Doi No Fugu in 1360 DR.[1]


Toyo was the younger son of Sumitomo Koji, master of the Doi No Fugu. In his youth, he was very close to his older brother, Sumitomo Yoichi, who was always fascinated by stories of travelers, and his younger sister Sumitomo Skoshi.

When, as tradition dictated, Yoichi was sent outside Maeshi Province for training as a chef, Toyo and Skoshi knew he would never come back. He didn't, and Toyo became the heir. With the turmoil in the province between the Michimori clan and the Korimori clan, he undertook his training at home.

In 1359 DR, the ronin Haka Kinnori arrived at the inn. After a talk with their father, Koji, he started to live with them. Soon Toyo and Skoshi befriended Haka, who also taught them karate.[1]
