Mangetsugakure (満月隠れの里, Mangetsugakure no Sato; English TV "Village Hidden in the Full Moon", "Hidden Full Moon Village"; Literally meaning "Village Hidden by Full Moon") is the hidden village of the Land of Wolves

Overview

Mangetsugakure is located in the northwest of the country. To find the village it's necessary to go upstream Ginkawa and cross a dangerous forest until the mountainous area is visible. There a path opens between the rocks, where the lookouts observe. 

At first sight, Mangetsugakure seems to have been frozen in time. The architecture of their houses is designed to withstand the heavy snowfall of the place. The two sides of the thatched roof are joined together and go down almost to the ground. The special feature of Mangetsugakure houses is that no nails or metal materials were used to construct them and all straw and wood was sourced from the forests surrounding the village.

In the winter, the roofs are covered in a thick layer of snow and the buildings almost resemble gingerbread houses coated in white icing - a magical sight to be seen. At such a high altitude, Mangetsugakure gets extremely cold, so not only does the thatch keep the houses insulated, but it also protects the wooden interiors from the weight of heavy snowfall. The steep slope of the roof sheds the snow easily and opens up spacious attics which, among shinobis, are used to storage weapons.

History

Warring States Period

The warring states period was longer on the Land of Wolves than on any other land. The war seemed to have no end until the northern clans allied and conquered the clans of the center and south of the country. Shortly afterwards it was decided that the country's main ninja village should remain in the north.

Founding

Mangetsugakure was founded by a triumvirate composed by the heads of the clans Garō, Hokusai and Ichigatani sort after the warring states period. The triumvirate decided that the leader of the village should be the most powerful warrior, which would be called from that day on as "Alpha". At the time, such honor was given to a member of the Garō clan. Uriuda Garō has been the Alpha for six years at the start of Boruto series, being those two the only Garō shinobi in ruling the village.
