The Toki claims descent from Minamoto no Yorimitsu and the Seiwa genji.
As governors of Mino Province during the Muromachi period, Toki was the seat of the Toki clan.
The Toki founded Zen Buddhist temples, including Shōhō-ji and Sōfuku-ji in the city of Gifu.
Minamoto no Mitsunobu, a fourth generation descendant of Yorimitsu, was installed in Toki; and he took the name Toki Yorisada, whose maternal grandfather was Hōjō Sadatoki, shikken of the Kamakura shogunate, fought against the Southern Dynasty with Ashikaga Takauji.
From the Muromachi period to the Sengoku period, the Toki clan ruled Mino Province. Toki Yasuyuki was shugo (governor) of Mino, Owari and Ise. When shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu had tried to take Owari from him, Yasuyuki refused and fought for two years (1389–1391).
