Harōgakure (波に隠れの里, Harōgakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden by Waves"; also known as "Village Hidden in the Waves" or "Hidden Wave Village") is the hidden village of the Land of Lightning. The village is located in a range of tall mountains and is a crescent moon-shaped island that is composed completely of bricks and steel, with cannons on the edges. During the Fourth Great Shinobi War, ninja built the Encircling Wall (包囲壁 Hōiheki) and had it installed at the curved area of the island, which is composed of thick and high steel walls that emerge from under the sea, surrounding and trapping anyone who is inside the said area; these walls are composed of unknown materials that are resistant to even Bijuus' shock waves, and has cannons installed in windows at the top, allowing the Marines to barrage the entrapped targets. On the center of the island is an execution scaffold, and around it is a small town with trees around the area. The front of the scaffold, which is a plain and empty area, is known as the Oris Plaza (オリス広場 Orisu Hiroba), where the OX Bell stands at the front.
At the back of the island, standing large, tall and proud is the Marine Headquarters building. The building is a large multistory ancient Japanese-stylized palace, with the base bearing the kanji for "Marines" (海軍 Kaigun), with the Marines symbol in between. Around the building's four cardinal corners is a small mountain with a small building on top and a flag with the Marines' symbol placed on top of the roofs each. Two years after the war, the "Marines" kanji has been replaced with "G-1".
