- Main article: Sunagakure
Sunagakure (砂隠れの里, Sunagakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden in the Sand") lies in the Land of Wind. As one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries , Sunagakure's leader is the Kazekage. There have been seven official Kazekage, the most recent being Chusaki Takaharu. Ninja from this village are known to specialize in Fuuton, Dokuton and Kugutsu no Jutsu.
Gathered together from the various desert dwelling warriors of the sands, Sunagakure has the smallest population of all the great nations. The shinobi make up for this deficit with their ferocity. Philosophy: success of a mission supersedes all, even the lives of the warriors involved. The sands present a variety of dangers for any outsider who dares to trespass upon their world.
