Kumogakure (Hidden Cloud Village in the Naruto English dub) is the hidden village of the Land of Lightning and was founded by the First Raikage. As one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries, Kumogakure has a Kage as its leader known as the Raikage. There have been five Raikage, the most recent being Darui. The village is located in a range of tall mountains, and is literally hidden in the clouds. The Raikage works in a large blue structure built into the tallest mountain.
Most shinobi of this village seem to have a natural affinity for Lightning Style nature transformation. Nintaijutsu, and Kenjutsu are also promoted as preferred fighting styles in this village. The standard attire for the shinobi from this village consists of a long, grey top which gathers just at the waist to give a sash-like appearance, with a matching colored bottom. Over this they wear white, one-strapped flak jackets and arm as well as shin-guards.
