Four years ago, the villagers suffered from starvation and were saved by the arrival of Portgas D. Ace and the Spade Pirates, who gave the villagers their food supply. Following that, Ace befriend the residents and learned from them how to make straw hats. A year ago, the village was destroyed by X Drake under Kaido's order, taking down the five guardian samurai and leaving the houses in ruins. From the weapons factory built within the vicinity, the river's water was poisoned, in which Tama was infected when she drank out of it.[3] "Amigasa" is a woven straw hat made from bamboo fibers.

As such, the very few civilians left consist of only a few business owners allowed to remain as a means of keeping certain businesses available for the officials.[5]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

At the time, there was a place in Wano that was considered a lawless area. Criminals and Ronins exiled from various villages gathered together, robbing and killing. Blood was spilled everyday, even the Shogun chose to ignore such a heinous region. That was Kuri.
— Kinemon describing Kuri's past


Kuri was originally a region where exiled outlaws gathered, pillaging and killing everyday, becoming so violent, Kozuki Sukiyaki chose to turn a blind eye to the region. Among those outlaws are Kin'emon who was born in Kuri[14], Raizo, Kanjuro, Kawamatsu, Denjiro and also Ashura Doji who was hailed as the most dangerous of them all.

He gathered all the outlaws in the region and reformed them into becoming law biding labourers, building a town and constructng a castle. He created the Paradise Farm for everyone, creating a free and lively village where laughter never stops
— Kinemon about Oden reforming Kuri


At age 20, Oden came to the Kuri region and challenged Ashura and defeated him. Using coercion and charisma, Oden reformed all the outlaws into law biding citzens to rebuild the region into a town and also construct his personal castle. Building the Paradise Farm to feed all of the reformed outlaws in exchange for their efforts and labour, bringing great peace and prosperity to the entire Kuri region. Out of immense respect and gratitude, Kinemon, Raizo, Kanjuro, Kawamatsu, Denjiro and Ashura Doji pledged to served Oden as his direct subordinates and became retainers for the Kozuki Family.[15]

Recently, the Beasts Pirates have been occupying Wano Country and have taken over most of the country's regions. One of the country's daimyo, Kozuki Oden, was executed by Kaido and the resident shogun for refusing to give out information about the "True History" that he found out during his time as a member of the Roger Pirates.[16] This caused Oden's son, Kozuki Momonosuke, and three of his retainers, Kin'emon, Kanjuro, and Raizo to flee the country and journey to Zou, where they could meet with the two leaders of the Mink Tribe, Inuarashi and Nekomamushi. For safety reasons, Momonosuke was instructed by Kin'emon to pretend to be his own son.

While at a market in Kuri, Tama was overheard by members of the Beast Pirates as she was talking about the Kozuki Family, and they captured her.[17]

Wano Country ArcEdit

When Komachiyo tried to save Tama, the Beast Pirates sent Hihimaru to attack and chase it. They ran into Monkey D. Luffy, who stopped the beasts fighting, defeated a few members of the Beast Pirates, and freed Tama. Tama brought Luffy back to her home to feed him, but Tama's master attacked Luffy after he unknowingly ate Tama's only food. She drank polluted river water, caused by Kaido's factories, and became ill after trying to stop their scuffle.[17]

TriviaEdit

  • The location Kuri means "Nine Li", Li being a unit of measurement originating from China, but adopted in Korea and Japan, roughly being 500, 393, and 3927 meters, respectively. Since Wano Country is based on Japan, Kuri may be translated as "35,345 meters" or "21.96 miles".
