The Kibitsu Marus were Standard Type 1A merchant ships converted to landing craft depot ships on the ways. Somewhat resembling the Allied LSDs, these ships launched their landing craft through stern doors. A peculiarity of their design was that their two funnels were side-by-side rather than inline. Tonnage varied among the ships of the class by about 200 tons.

A fourth unit, Tokitsu Maru, was under construction at the time of the surrender, and was completed as a merchant ship in 1946.
