The Mamiya was originally meant to be an oil transporter but was instead outfitted to be a food supply ship. The Navy sent her to the Kawasaki Shipbuilding Yard where she was fitted with facilities for carrying enough food for 18,000 men over three weeks, and kitchens to produce large quantities of food including yokan, manju, tofu, and konyaku. A number of chefs and pastry chefs were employed aboard and she became part of the Combined Fleet.
