This article is a work in progress. Thank you.


Born in the Nadesiko Village, as the eldest daughter of the Hanasaki Clan, Nadeshiko was raised to be perfect."Beautiful, kind, modest, obedient, the ideal girl." She was brought up with those words as her goal, and soon gained the title "Yamato Nadeshiko". She trained with her elder brother, Tsujimaru, in ninjutsu and genjutsu, and became very skilled in the Ninja Arts.

Nadeshiko village

Nadeshiko's Village

Nadeshiko's mother was assassinated by a missing-nin of Sunagakure and a member of the Akatsuki, known as Sasori of the Red Sand. At the young age of 5 years old, Nadeshiko inherited the burden as the head of the Hanasaki Clan, and was taught the Clan's secret genjutsu technique. 

With the help of the clan's elders, she managed to maintain her clan's good reputation. Two year later, Nadeshiko discovered that, like her elder brother, she had inherited her grandfather's Crystal Release kekkei genkai

The Clan's elder instructed her to keep this a secret from the rest of the world, as it would be dangerous for the Clan. 

As the head of the clan, it was essential to ensure Nadeshiko's safety while she underwent training. However, as was the wish of her deceased mother, Nadeshiko was enrolled into a ninja academy for exposure. The Kiri Ninja Academy proved to be very beneficial, but the clan's elders were troubled by the academy's former graduation exam death match. Though this practice was discontinued after the Zabuza Momochi slaughter many years ago, it was decided that Nadeshiko would be retracted from enrollment in Kirgakure's Academy.    


Nadeshiko was raised in the likeness of 'Yamato Nadeshiko', the idealized woman in Japanese culture. Her well-mannered and her polite nature is noted by the people around her. Initially, her sheltered upbringing left her with little to no experience in making friends, causing a rift between herself and her peers in the beginning. After meeting Ren Yukina in the Academy, Nadeshiko learns to open up to others and have more confidence in her self.  

On Team 16, she was often the reluctant mediator between Rei's lazy, irresponsible nature and Ren's disciplined and self righteous attitude. She got along best with Fuyuki Sakurano, who would always sympathize for her position and was equally level-headed. After his death, Nadeshiko became determined to get stronger with her remaining teammate, so that they would never have to watch someone they care about die for them again.  

As a chunin, Nadeshiko manages to develop a more assertive and focused nature in her attitude towards her ninja duties and missions. Unlike before, she is now able to voice out her opinion and is calmer when dealing with stressful situations. She is also noted to be quite curious and ready to learn, seeing criticism as an opportunity for self improvement. Sakura believes her to be very mature, but also too good and forgiving in nature. 


Nadeshiko is a 16 year-old girl with an average height and slender build. Her straight, dark-purple hair, which was inherited from her mother, is tied in a short ponytail, with two jaw-length bangs framing her face. Her eyes vary in shades of purple, inherited from her father.

During her time in the Nadeshiko Village, Nadeshiko wore a sleeveless white and red dress similar to that of a shrine maiden uniform. This is a customary outfit for the heiress of the clan. Her hair was also worn down and shoulder-length. 

In Part II, Nadeshiko's outfits is changed to a lilac kimono top tucked into a dark skirt. Underneath she wears a fishnet shirt. She also sports a pair of indigo, knee-high socks, black fingerless gloves and dark blue ninja sandals. By this time, Nadeshiko keeps her hair in a ponytail.  Her forehead protector is wore around her neck.In Naruto: The Last, wore a grey, kimono-style blouse with no sleeves and a flower pattern at the bottom, held closed by a broad, purple obi. She had black gloves that reach just below her shoulders. She wore fishnet shorts underneath and long black socks with black shinobi sandals.

Nadeshiko's appearance in 第十六版 外伝: Shippuden After Story.

In Shippuden After-story, Nadeshiko wears a sleeveless white, kimono-styled dress with a lilac and light blue trimmings as part of the design. The Hanasaki family crest is visible at the back. Her forehead protector is tucked underneath her obi. Additionally, she wears a pair of black leggings underneath her dress, white, loose arm-warmers reaching her upper arm, and inside them, black finger-less gloves.



Nature Transformation

At the age of seven, Nadeshiko discovered that she possessed the ability to utilize Crystal Release. Crystal Release (晶遁, Shōton, English TV: Crystal Style) is a rare and specialised field of elemental ninjutsu that can create crystal as well as manipulate already-existing crystals and crystalline structures. This was inherited from her paternal grandfather, Yuki Nanato, who possessed both Ice Release and Crystal Release. Alongside her brother, who also wielded Crystal Release, Nadeshiko trained to strengthen her kekkei genkai with the supervision of her clan's elders. She was able to learn the fundamental concepts of the ability, but when she moved to Konohagakure, Nadeshiko discontinued her training, as she was instructed to keep her kekkei genkai a secret from the village.

Nadeshiko's Chakra Nature affinity is Wind Release. Typically used in long range combat with her war fan, Nadeshiko can create blades of wind for offense. 


The Hanasaki Clan specializes in genjutsu, so Nadeshiko has trained from a young age in the art of illusion. She is able to cast very effective genjutsus in the middle of a fight without her opponent taking notice. She makes use of her clan's secret technique, Waltz of the Flowers to create an illusional reality, typically used to disorient and divert the attention of her opponent and to create an opening for her attacks.

Part I

When she was nine, Nadeshiko was granted permission to travel to the Land of Fire and study in Konohagakure's Academy, under the conditions that a clan representitive would come check up on her every month until she'd come of age, that she would return to her the Land of Water every other year, and that she would not expose her kekkei genkai.

Initially, when she entered the Academy, Nadeshiko would spend her time alone, for she was unused to being around other people her age. Her classmates payed no mind to her until one day, a boy approached her and sat down with her. He would ask about Nadeshiko and why she was always alone. The boy introduced himself as Ren. Despite his nonchalant demeanor, Nadeshiko thought him to be concerned deep down. The two soon forged a bond, and with Ren's encouragement, Nadeshiko was able to open up towards others more and make a few friends.

Nadeshiko's maturity and promising abilities allowed her graduated that year, along with a handfull of others in her class. Her classmates, Moegi and Udon, congratulated her, telling her that they would follow suit and graduate soon as well. Nadeshiko was put into Team 16, with Yukina Ren and Sakurano Fuyuki, and a man named Hyūga Rei as their jonin leader and sensei. The team performed efficiently and had great camaraderie. 


In Naruto's Footsteps: The Friends' Paths

A year later, Nadeshiko, along with her two genin team mates, took the Konoha-Suna joint Chūnin Exams. All of her team past the first stage of the exam. However, on the second stage, they was ambushed by an enemy team who specialized body possession. The enemy took control of Fuyuki's body, threatening Ren and Nadeshiko that they'd kill the boy if they didn't handed over their Heaven and Earth Scrolls. Fuyuki warned him to keep the scrolls and run. Nadeshiko quickly pulled Ren back, as the possessed Fuyuki attempted to stab him. Seeing that Nadeshiko would not comply with their demands, the enemy team killed Fuyuki. Traumatized, Nadeshiko refused to go on, and forfeited her posistion in the Exam that year.

Team 16 continued to function as a three-man-squad, composed of Rei, Nadeshiko and Ren.

Part II

Tenchi Bridge Reconnaissance Mission

In Part II, Team 16 was first seen resting within the Dango Shop after a long mission. While eating, Rei remembered hearing that Team Kakakashi had returned from a mission in Sunagakure. It is then reveal to Nadeshiko that Sasori of the Red Sand had been killed by the Leaf kunoichi, Sakura Haruno. Nadeshiko suddenly stood and excused herself from the table before running off to find Sakura and ask the latter to train her. Later in the day, Nadeshiko returned to her team, disheartened that Team Kakashi had already left for another mission.

Pain's Assault

While the village was in chaos, Nadeshiko ran through the streets, assisting injured villagers. After she brought them to safety, she worried about her team and hoped to find them alive. Suddenly, images of Fuyki's death flashed through her mind, causing her to freeze up in her tracks. It was only when Ren called out her name did Nadeshiko snap out of her trance. Ren angrily snapped at her for spacing out in the middle of the battlefield, revealing that he had also been frantically searching for her prior to their meeting. He then grabbed her hand, ordering her to not leave his side until the battle was over. Together, the two continued to rescue villagers.

Some time after the assault, Nadeshiko retook the Chunin Exams held by Sunagakure in the Land of Wind and passed alongside Konohamaru Sarutobi.


Naruto: The Last

Nadeshiko and Ren, both now fourteen years old and chūnin-class shinobi, are seen walking with Konohamaru to Ichiraku Ramen. Ren complains to Konohamaru about Rei's bad drinking habits, saying that the latter reeks of alcohol when the Team eats out together. Nadeshiko chides her teammate for badmouthing their sensei, but secretly agrees that the man can get out of hand when he's had too much to drink.

Four years after the end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Nadeshiko and her team set out on a mission to the Land of Steel, where they were tasked to spy on a missing-nin of the Leaf who had gone joined the Samurai and stop him. Her team confronted the ex-shinobi and it resulted in a battle. Half way through the fight, their opponent called for reinforcements. Team 16 was outnumbered and they were defeated. Thus, resulting a failed mission. The mission had cost Rei his right eye, and he had to resign his duties as a shinobi, much to Nadeshiko's dismay.

第十六版 外伝: Shippuden After Story

The remaining members of Team 16 are put on probation. Ren storms into the Hokage's office with Nadeshiko in tow, demanding that the two would be allowed to operate as a two-man squad. Nadeshiko tells him to calm down and apologizes to Kakashi, but Ren doesn't let up. Kakashi then tells them that he plans to reassign them into separate teams, angering Ren. Nadeshiko, in a very out of character manner, shouts at her team mate and sharply tells him to act his age. Taken aback and frustrated, Ren leaves the room. Nadeshiko then speaks to Kakashi and requests that they be allowed to form a new team together with new members. Kakashi says he can't guarantee her that replacements will be found, but tells her that he will consider her proposal.

A month later, Nadeshiko and Ren are assigned two new team mates. Megumi and Sakura Haruno, who is the new team's acting captain. Together the four of them go on various missions together.
