Higakure (陽隠れの里, Higakure no Sato; English TV "Village Hidden in the Sun", "Hidden Sun Village"; Literally meaning "Village Hidden by Sun") is the hidden village of the Land of Light (located between the Land of Hills and the Land of Earth). Because it is not one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries it is not governed by a Kage, instead it is governed by a Village Head, the current being Heibō Oniwaka. The Head is always a member of the Oniwaka Clan, and the successor is selected by the previous Head upon their retirement.

History

Founding

Like other hidden villages, Higakure was founded shortly after the Warring States Period. The founders were twin brothers named Benbō and Keibō Oniwaka, who originally settled in the Land of Light with their families to protect the surrounding farming villages from bandits. Eventually people began arriving in the village hoping for instruction on the Shinobi arts, and thus Higakure emerged as a Shinobi village.

The Head of the Village is always a member of the Oniwaka Clan, making the village a monarchical ruling.
