Tonfon, like Kaocho, is based on ancient China, but Tonfon resembles a port town like Shanghai more than a traditional Chinese town. Story-wise, it is a fairly important location, not only being the last town before the Endless Wall and the Apollo Lens, but also the source of several important endgame items. Also nearby is Lonely Island Ruins, home to a piece of the Umbra Gear. Following a successful completion of the main storyline, the player will be transported to Tonfon, to a time period just before the player has completed the final dungeon.
Tonfon is the seat of power of the country of Sana, a country founded by Emperor Ko sometime after the Golden Sun event. The city served as Ko's headquarters during his attempt to expand Sana by military force. When a civil war broke out upon Ko's death, Sana, would gain a new, more peaceful ruler in Emperor Unan. However, the opposing faction, led by King Wo, would leave Tonfon to found Kaocho.
Besides Unan, Tonfon was the hometown of Unan's brother, Lord Kuan, his wife Lady Hinechou and their two children Ryu Kou and Hou Ju. The family had left Tonfon before the civil war to be the governing family of Sana's colony of Morgal. However, during the civil war, the native Beastmen of Morgal waged a successful revolution to become an independent country. Kuan would be killed, while his children were forced to flee for their lives. Lady Hinechou escaped any harm via a chance visit to Tonfon before the revolt.
During Dark Dawn, it is discovered that Hou Ju was captured by Morgal and is being held captive. Meanwhile, Ryu Kou and his mentor Hou Zan are attempting to find a way to rescue her. Alongside Matthew and his party of Adepts, Hou Ju is retrieved, but the Grave Eclipse is started in the process. Around this time, Unan sent a boat from Tonfon, to retrieve the Sanans, but the boat never arrives to Tonfon, which upset Lady Hinechou. She did however give an Echo Gem to Hou Ju, which could help track her. However, Hinechou is too fearful to use her corresponding Echo Gem to locate Hou Ju.
During their travels to stop the Grave Eclipse, Matthew's party travels to Tonfon, in an attempt to find the Umbra Map, an ancient map that located treasures that would assist in stopping the Eclipse. After an audience with Unan, they learn that Ryu Kou has the map. Matthew then "borrows" Hinechou's Echo Gem, locates the boat to an area near Imil, where Hou Zan gave his life to protect Ryu Kou and Hou Ju. After a short burial service, Ryu Kou offers his Umbra Map to Matthew, and the two Sanans board Matthew's boat to return to Tonfon. An overjoyed Emperor Unan and Lady Hienchou thank Matthew; Lady Hinechou also gives Matthew a Lady Moon's Ring as thanks. Unan then invites Matthew into his study, where he gives them a Red Orb, an object similar to the the Blue Orb Volechek gave Sveta. Apparently, Arcanus was ahead of Matthew and gave Unan the Red Orb in advance. Unan explains the purpose of the orbs, which is in opening the way to the Apollo Lens, an weapon that can end the eclipse, as well as powering the weapon.

Tinder (Mars)- On the roof of the item shop. The man near a pile of boxes next to the item shop is mad because the Ferry service is running late. Go to the southwest corner of the city and use Slap on the sleeping ferryman, who then parks the boat where you can jump across it to the item shop's roof and obtain Tinder.
Dragon Bow: Found in a chest near the eastern side of the palace. The pathway to the chest is only accessible from the western side of the palace, via the upper floor of Lady Hinechou's home.
- Tonfon's name is based on the Chinese character Dongfang (东方), as the "Don" becomes "Ton" in Japanese. Dongfang literally means "the east" or "eastern", and Tonfon is in the easternmost part of Angara and Sana.
