Iwagakure

Iwagakure
(岩隠れの里, Iwagakure; English "Hidden Stone Village";
Literally meaning "Village Hidden in the Rocks") is the hidden village
of the Land of Earth. As one of the five great ninja villages,
Iwagakure has a Kage as its leader known as the Tsuchikage. Its symbol
is made of two rocks, with a smaller one in front of a larger one. The
ninja from this village seem to specialize in Earth Release techniques.

Iwagakure
is well-known for the rock-hard attitude of its shinobi. As soon as the
Tsuchikage gives an order, the Iwa-nin do so without hesitating, even
if it means death. The rocky mountain ranges that surround the village
and country provide a natural stronghold. The village profits from this
advantageous position and is proud of its strong defenses.The village
sits among a mountain range, with the buildings being composed of rock
and stone; many of its buildings sit on cliffs connected by a network
of bridges. The Tsuchikage's palace seems to be the tallest structure
with a cone shaped roof. The village at one time had the Four-Tailed
Monkey (imbued in Roshi) and Five-Tailed Dolphin Horse (imbued in Han)
in its possession. Both were eventually captured and extracted by
Akatsuki.

The village was a participant in the Third Great
Shinobi World War, invading Kusagakure and fighting against
Konohagakure. The war went well for Iwagakure, almost reaching the
border of the Land of Fire. However, despite their military power
having hit an all-time low, Konohagakure managed to turn the tide of
the war by destroying the Kannabi Bridge and so cutting off Iwagakure's
line of supply. It is unknown if there is currently peace between the
two villages.
