|English||Village Hidden Among Stars|
|Located In||Land of Bears|
Hoshigakure (星隠れの里, Hoshigakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden Among Stars") is located in the Land of Bears, and is one of the lesser-known shinobi villages.
Hoshigakure was formed sometime after a strange meteorite, which the inhabitants called the "star", struck its location two hundred years earlier. Information gathered from the villagers suggests that the village was founded much sooner than Konoha. Its leader is the Hoshikage (星影; Literally meaning "Star Shadow"), although the leader is a Kage in name only. The other villages do not recognize Hoshigakure as an equal, nor is there any ninja truly worthy of the title.
