This village participated in a battle 30 years ago with Konoha, they say, none of the villages surrendered, but there came a time when a Leaf battalion made a surprise attack, leaving the entire village destroyed.
Three months after the attack, the village signed a truce, but it was actually for one of their ninjas named Gennō to infiltrate the enemy village to set up a large number of explosive seals to destroy Konoha. But this plan was not carried out, since the leader had died and his successor decided to sign the peace treaty.

Takumi Village is known for its skills in making weapons, many of which are sold to ninja villages around the world. When the village fell on hard times, they asked for help but were ignored by the other shinobi villages.
Some skilled Takumi villagers felt resentful, and felt that the ninja villages did not respect them for all the help their weapons gave in the past. Four skilled craftsmen trained harder than the others in the ninja arts, wore the Takumi symbol on their ninja headband, and sought to resurrect their founder. They planned to resurrect him by using the Shukaku inside Gaara, to later use him for revenge against the 5 Great Shinobi Countries.

The Hidden Village of the Tsuchigumo Clan is the village where the Tsuchigumo Clan lives. The village is led by Hotaru’s uncle, the head of the Tsuchigumo clan. This village is made up of the members of the Tsuchigumo Clan who refused to follow En no Gyōja to Mount Katsuragi, and who denied the clan’s forbidden technique.
They became slaves for the Magaki Group, who were seeking Kinjutsu. When the Yamato team is sent on a mission to return Hotaru to the Clan Village, the townspeople are unhappy to see her again. The chief approached them apparently happy to see Hotaru return to the village. As Team Yamato leaves, they take Hotaru to a room to rest, only to lock her in there with Team Magaki who are after the Tsuchigumo Clan Kinjutsu she wears on her body.
After Hotaru runs away from the ninjas and they start chasing her, Naruto returns to the village and asks the chief what happened. He tells Naruto that the town hasn’t started their search for Hotaru yet, so Naruto and her team have to go look for her. They later appear as a zombie horde, used by Magaki’s group as a shield from attacks and armies against Sakura, Sai, Yamato, Naruto, and Utakata. As the two jinchuriki decide to move on, Sai, Yamato, and Sakura defeat the town and Team Magaki.
13. Jōmae Village
Jōmae Village or Village of the Lock is a village located in the Land of Keys. This village has shinobi who are experts in espionage in order to obtain information for negotiations with the great nations, that is, the most powerful.
The ninja of this village seems to be specifically trained in getting information without giving any in return, as is evident by Hanare’s Mind Reading Eye and their leader’s willingness to commit suicide rather than be taken hostage.
Uniform The shinobi of the Keyhole Village wear blue pants and a brown sleeveless vest, long blue gloves, and a Tantō on the back or waist, they also wear their protector with the symbol of their village on the forehead.
Hoshigakure was introduced during the Hoshigakure filler saga. He is located in the Land of Bears, and is one of the lesser-known Shinobi Villages in the Naruto universe. Hoshigakure was formed sometime after a strange meteorite, which locals call the “star”, landed in the area 200 years earlier. There are no trees or plants around where the Star landed.
Information obtained from the villagers suggests that the village may not have been founded before Konoha. Their leader is the Hoshikage, although the leader is a Kage in name only. The other towns do not recognize Hoshigakure as an equal, nor are there any ninja truly worthy of the title of Kage. The meteorite wasn’t big, but it gave off a kind of radiation that enhances chakra.
The First Hoshikage was able to devise a training method to allow the ninja in the village to harness the power of the star, allowing the ninja to gain supernatural levels of chakra. The technique used to harness this power is the Peacock Mystery Method. Following the development of the skill, the meteorite was then fixed to the top of the eagle claw-shaped pedestal within and at the very center of the Star’s training site, which was built for the very purpose of the Hoshigakure shinobi formation in the future.
When this technique is fully mastered, it gives the user almost unmatched chakra control, to the point where it can be consolidated as a shield or create wings for flight. The formation was finally banned by the Third Hoshikage, after he realized the amount of deaths left by the training, the radiation of the stars was impossible for some shinobi to handle, so their interior began to corrupt and their Organs weakened, eventually leading to internal bleeding or organ failure.
Even if a ninja has survived the training, the secondary effects will eventually kill him. Only Natsuhi and Hotarubi, Sumaru’s parents, managed to survive the formation, and both of them eventually died. Regardless of the dire side effects, the Star ninja were known for their proud and persistent character. The Sandaime was killed by Akahoshi, who became the substitute Hoshikage and reinstated the formation.
Kusagakure is in an unknown country that fans named the Land of Grass, this is the home of the ninja Karin, Orochimaru’s personal doctor and member of the Taka organization. Her frontal protector symbol is three blades of grass. During the Third Shinobi World War, the country was invaded by Iwagakure and served as a major front between Iwagakure and Konoha. More than a decade later, Orochimaru set up a hideout somewhere in the country.
Because there were Genin from the village at the Chunin exams held by Konoha, it can be assumed that the two villages have allied after the war. Although it never received an official name, it has been seen on several occasions, the country is rich in forests, and has vegetation of giant mushrooms or bamboo shoots. There also seem to be many rivers and deep ravines.
Yugakure is the village where Akatsuki member Hidan originated from. It is located in the Land of Hot Water. It was previously a ninja village, but Yugakure decided that it no longer wanted to be a hidden village and became a peaceful and prosperous town. However, Hidan, growing up, showed to follow the violent trend of the Jashin religion, the village did not agree with this and so Hidan killed his neighbors before leaving the village.
It appears in chapter 92 of Naruto Shippuden. When Kabuto Yakushi and Yūkimaru are on a trip and stop to rest. Yūkimaru meets Naruto Uzumaki at a spring and talks with him about how hearts can communicate.
There you can’t see much of the village, but it looks a bit small and without walls to protect it; unlike most Hidden Villages that do have them in case they are attacked. This is perhaps because it has never been considered a Hidden Village. It was evacuated by the Shinobi Alliance forces, because it was chosen as the battlefield for the Fourth Shinobi World War.
Takigakure is located in the Land of Waterfall. His ninjas seem to specialize in Water Release techniques. Little is known about the history of this village, except that Kakuzu, from Akatsuki, comes from it. The hidden village suffered a historical crime at the hands of Kakuzu himself, who, as revenge for the punishment imposed for failing in his mission to assassinate the First Hokage, steals the Kinjutsu of his village, Jiongu, which he uses against the leaders of the hidden village and it becomes his main skill.
In the anime, according to Shibuki, due to its excellent Jōnin, which demonstrated the power of the village, it was considered a great village, which earned them the Seven Tails. Although there were two Genin teams in the Chūnin Exam, neither made it past the first test. It is also known that Fū, the Jinchūriki of Chōmei, hails from this village.
Otogakure is a ninja village located in the Land of Rice Fields. It is Orochimaru’s personal village, which was founded for the explicit purpose of collecting ninjas for his experiments and his quest to learn all the jutsus.
After Orochimaru fled from Konohagakure and became part of Akatsuki, he took advantage of the situation in the Land of Sounds to create his own village, in order to experiment with people and have a particular place to gather enough ninjas to attack Konoha. During the creation of this village, Orochimaru collected a large number of shinobi, including members of the Fūma Clan.
Uzushiogakure was an ancient village that was located within the Land of Whirlpools, also called the Village of Longevity, the people of this village were recognized because they lived for many years. This village had a close relationship with Konoha to the point that they used the symbol of this village on the official uniforms of the Leaf Chūnin and Jōnin (The Red Spirals) as a symbol of friendship.
This village no longer exists because it was destroyed by some villages in fear of their power and control of their clans, (the Uzumaki Clan), it had a powerful fuinjutsu “The Seal of Four Symbols”, but the survivors were divided into several parts of the world, was so well known for its mastery of stamps that, during the ninja war, it was razed to the ground to avoid complications.

Not much is known about the beginnings of Kirigakure, but the first head of the village attended the first Kage Meeting, it is known that during the tenure of his successor, he had a conflict with Iwagakure caused by the Yosuga Pass incident.
Despite this, they received many praises for having a great military force, in addition to the fact that it is said that Akatsuki was created in this same village, this being the hypothesis that created a great mistrust between the villages towards her.
Amegakure is a small, highly industrialized village that is considered to be a land cut off from the outside world. A series of small hamlets surround this village. As its name indicates, it rains almost permanently on the town. Many ninjas in this village seem to wear a kind of mask that allows them to breathe under the rainwater and carry umbrellas as their ninja weapons, which allows them to protect themselves from the eternal rain of their village.
It is located in the Land of Rain, which is located around the Land of Fire, Wind, and Earth; because of this the town was turned into a battlefield between all these ninja nations. One of the main characteristics of the village is that it is made up of large towers, which are used by the people as cemeteries. It is said that in the highest tower of this village, was its former leader named Nagato.
Sunagakure is a ninja village in the Land of Wind. Being one of the Five Great Ninja Villages, said village has a Kage as its leader known as the Kazekage, who lives in a spherical structure in the center of the village. So far there have been five Kazekages, Gaara being the most recent of these. Sunagakure was founded by the First Kazekage, Reto, where he gathered the desert-dwelling shinobi and brought them under his control with his overwhelming power.
At some point the town came into possession of the One-Tail, and over the years the beast was sealed into three different personas so that its capabilities could be studied.
The Third Kazekage was able to create the Iron Sand by imitating Shukaku’s ability to control sand, thanks to this he was recognized as the strongest Kazekage and even his weapon was recognized by Chiyo, one of the strongest Jonin in the village, as the most feared weapon in the history of Suna

The ninjas of this village specialize in the use of techniques that use Earth-type nature.
Furthermore, this village is known to have had in its possession two tailed beasts: the Four-Tails and the Five-Tails. Iwagakure is surrounded by a large number of mountains that serve its people as a natural defense against enemy attacks, so the village is proud of its great defenses.
The village is situated on a chain of mountains from which small narrow waterfalls emerge, with buildings made of rock and stone; in the form of large formations and towering rocks in tower structures. The buildings are connected to each other through bridges and the largest building is where the Tsuchikage stays.

Five ninjas have been in the position, the most recent being Darui. The use of Lightning Release and Kenjutsu techniques seem to be common among the ninjas of the village.
It was the only one of the Five Great Villages that never had a fugitive in Akatsuki, something the Fourth Raikage took great pride in. During the First Great Shinobi World War, Kumogakure tried to form an alliance with Konoha. During a ceremony to sign the peace treaty between the Second Raikage and the Second Hokage, the Gold and Silver Brothers staged a coup.
The Hokage was severely injured, and the brothers became the most reviled criminals in Kumogakure’s history. It is unclear what happened to them after the failed coup, it is only known that a group of ninjas from Kumogakure known as the Kinkaku Army were responsible for the Second Hokage’s death. The First Shinobi War ended with an armistice treaty, but only after all of the Five Great Shinobi Nations were seriously damaged.
Konohagakure is the hidden village of the Land of Fire. As one of the Five Great Ninja Villages, Konoha has a Kage as its leader known as the Hokage. In total, Konoha has had seven Hokage, with Naruto Uzumaki being the current one. On a mountain overlooking the town from the north rises the Hokage Rock.
Even though Konoha, like the country it resides in, has been relatively peaceful since the end of the Fourth Great Shinobi World War, it remains one of the most powerful towns in existence, having great military power and influence, although this had been diminished a few years ago by Orochimaru and Pain’s attacks.
Before the creation of the ninja villages, they were organized into small mercenary clans that were hired for battle. Of the countless ninja clans, the Uchiha clan and the Senju clan were the strongest. After much bloodshed, the Senju clan offered the Uchiha a truce.
The leader of the Uchiha, Madara Uchiha told Hashirama that in order to gain his trust he must commit suicide or kill his brother, Tobirama. Hashirama, without hesitation, chose the option of committing suicide but Madara stops him arguing that he had already seen his guts, so the clans allied. After the alliance they made a pact with the Land of Fire to create a ninja village.
The Senju, Uchiha, and other clans came together to create Konoha. Madara named the village and Hashirama created the Hokage name for the village leader, who thought that Madara was the most suitable for that position, to which Tobirama and the rest of the villagers, including the Clan members Uchiha, they refused.
Hashirama Senju, the leader of the Senju, used his Wood Release abilities to produce much of the village’s infrastructure. For this reason he was selected to be the first Hokage by the villagers.
