Konohagakure (meaning the "Village Hidden on the Leaves" or the "Hidden Leaf Village") is the Hidden Village of The Land of Fire. As one of the five Great Ninja Villages, Konohagakure has a Kage as its leader known as the Hokage. There have been five Hokage, the most recent being Tsunade Senju. On a mountain overlooking the village from the north exists the Hokage Monument. Although Konoha, much like the country in which it resides, has been relatively peaceful since the end of The Third Great Ninja War, it remains one of the most powerful villages in existence, and has great military power and influence.
In the time before the creation of the ninja villages, ninja were organized into small mercenary clans that knew nothing but battle. Of the countless ninja clans, the Uchiha Clan and the Senju Clan were the strongest.
