|Notable Locations||Manjidani Ninja Academy|
Manjidani is a rather small village sitting on the small island that is the Land of Whirlpools, located a few kilometers east of Uzushiogakure. The village was originally the home to the Kōga clan, a small but strong family of shinobi; however, once the First Shinobi World War broke out, the Hazure clan migrated, causing tensions between the two powerful clans. After almost a century, a civil war erupted, decimating both families, as well as Manjidani. Once the war was over, the Hazure - the victors - began rebuilding the village into what it is today. A few years before the start of the series, a ninja academy was established so that the inhabitants could be formally trained in the art of the shinobi.
