To Toyo Kisen Kaisha.

The three sisters Chiyo Maru, Tenyo Maru and Shinyo Maru (all c. 13,400 grt, 575 ft. long)
were delivered in 1908 (Shinyo Maru in 1911) for the Hong Kong-San Francisco service.
The Chiyo Maru ran aground south of Hong Kong in 1916 and sank.
The others worked the same route after Toyo was taken over by NYK in 1926.
They were scrapped in 1933 and 1936 respectively.
