The town of Toko was established in the 1890's and was a bustling village at one time (click here for a photo of the railway station opening) before the railway station, saw mill and dairy factory closed.
Nowadays, the population is just over 1,000 and is just a wide spot in the road on the way to somewhere else.
I imagine that, at one time, it was truly a little slice of heaven with its rolling hills and open skies.
Being on the main road, Benzika's
gas petrol station was probably the place where
people stopped for a bit of gossip now and then.

There is still mail pick-up once a day at 10:30am, Monday - Friday.
Toko is located on State Highway 43. the Forgotten World Highway, aptly named, I'd say.
