Katabami Kinzan is a village in the Land of the River. It is a mining town that took ore and processed it into gold. Because the previous government leaders imposed high taxes on the workers, the people were, at first, glad when Raiga Kurosuki came and overthrew them. However, Raiga held funerals for people still living if they went against him or if he did not like them. He cried and told his memories of the people during the funerals as if he really would miss them. Naruto, Lee, Tenten, and Neji were sent there to help. Karashi, the son of Sanshō, the shopkeeper of the Curry of Life shop, joined Raiga to try and become stronger. After Raiga died, Karashi went back to live with Sanshō and help make curry.
