During World War II, Taroa Airfield was a major Japanese airbase approximately three miles long and one mile wide. The airfield was Japan's easternmost airbase of the War. Heavily bombed during the war, it was a favorite target for bombers from Makin Airfield, Tarawa and Abemama. Remnants of the airbase, defenses, and battles can still be found on the island; about 1,200 feet from the southwest end of the airport lies the wreck of the Toreshima Maru, a Japanese supply ship sunk in December, 1943.
