Unlike many villages in the Five Great Shinobi Countries, Konohagakure or Konoha has all its sides surrounded by gigantic walls. Other ninja villages consider it the most powerful, and it is the only one that has enjoyed peace and stability for many years.

History of the Hidden Leaf Village

The Hidden Leaf Village came into existence during the Warring States Period, a long, violent era that preceded the formation of the hidden villages. During this period, the Senju and Uchiha clans with long histories of battle decided to end the bloodshed, with Hashirama Senju as the leader of the Senju clan.

After the formation of the Hidden Leaf Village, Hashirama produced the infrastructure of the entire village. Many villagers saw him as a man of good ideas, thoughts, and leadership. Therefore, they chose him to become their leader, known as the Hokage.

Madara was also a leader because he played a crucial role in coining the village's name. But after the selection of Hashirama as the Hokage, he became insecure. Madara feared that Hashirama and his clan, the Senju, would oppress the Uchiha clan.

He then concocted a plan to overthrow him. But, to his surprise, his fellow Uchiha did not support him. So, he decided to remove Hashirama by force. Unfortunately, it led to his defeat, and many people believed he died.

In the Hidden Leaf Village, wearing the headband is a sign of pride and allegiance. Any ninja that wears it considers the protector an honourable and essential part of the village’s tradition.
