The Uzumaki clan (うずまき一族, Uzumaki Ichizoku) was a prominent clan in Uzushiogakure. They were distant blood relatives of the Senju clan and as such, both were on good terms; an alliance that extended onto their hidden villages — Konohagakure and Uzushiogakure. The shinobi of Konoha integrated Uzushiogakure's symbol onto their uniforms and flak jackets as well as on the shoulders of their uniforms as a sign of friendship and goodwill between the two villages, and continue to do so to this day, in memory of their friendship even years after Uzushiogakure's destruction.
The clan is limited to 10 members and has 3 openings.
The Uzumakis are scattered through the world after the events in Uzushiogakure. One of them, Kantaro, went digging through Uzumaki history and records trying to determine where other Uzumakis could be located. Following hints and speculation, he went to a temple and was able to find his way to Uzushio. Or rather, an underground version of Uzushio where numerous Uzumakis have lived just prior to the destruction of Uzushiogakure.
Kantaro was able to persuade many of them to leave their underground home and assist in the liberation of Ame from the Oni. They were offered a home by the Kouukage, Shinkiro, and have formed an Uzumaki Quarter within Ame consisting predominantly of the underground-Uzushio Uzumakis. There are many other Uzumakis in the world, as they scattered from Uzushiogakure after it's destruction and resettled in many other villages such as Konoha. The primary basis of the majority of the clan and it's culture is concentrated in Amegakure.
Members of this clan were very knowledgeable in the art of fūinjutsu, and were both respected, and feared worldwide because of their prodigious skill. Though noted to be crude in their methods, this however, eventually led to the destruction of Uzushiogakure and the rest of the Land of Whirlpools during the era of Shinobi World Wars, as other nations had begun to see the village as too great a threat to go unchecked.
