Chiyo (千代, Chiyo) is the daughter of the daimyō of the Land of This.


This Daimyō, Shū and Chiyo2

Chiyo with her father and Shū watching the eating contest.

Chiyo first appears as a viewer of the eating contest alongside Shū and her father. After, she witnesses Tatewaki's harsh training methods and scolds him for mistreating Shū.

The next day, Chiyo wakes Naruto, who is disguised as Shū and notifies him of breakfast's start and later takes literature classes with Naruto. Chiyo watches Naruto train with Tatewaki and is quick to notice his strange skills. Realising Naruto was only pretending to be Shū, she holds a weapon to his neck and threatens him, asking were the real Shū was. However, after using a smoke bomb, Naruto is able to escape. She finds Naruto once again, but is unable to fight him due to the Akatsuki's invasion. She is saved by Tatewaki and protected by Naruto during this time, and at the invasion's end is able to escape to the Land of That with Shū where his father welcomed her into their home.

Presently, Chiyo is traveling with Shū.


Chiyo Tells Tatewaki to Stop the Training

Chiyo tells Tatewaki to stop the training.

Chiyo is shown to be a polite and caring person, frequently referring to Shū with the suffix "-sama" and showing concern for his well-being, physical and emotional, as she later reprimands Tatewaki for his training methods, which she called too strict. Aside from that, Chiyo, alongside her father, is shown to be impressed by the final contestants as they struggled to finish their portions in the last part of the eating contest.

While seldom shown, Chiyo could also be fierce and decisive, as seen when she threatened Naruto after Tatewaki caught him impersonating Shū.


Chiyo has brown eyes and long curled brown hair with a red ribbon. While reminiscent of the Hime hair-style, she also kept two bangs framing her face that are curled up in the ends. She wears a pink kimono with a light pink sleevless haori with purple trimmings and an red and blue obi with a yellow cord around the waist.


Princess Chiyo and Naruto

While not explicitly shown, Chiyo was confident in the use of a naginata, certain that she could cut off "an arm or leg or two" of a cornered shinobi like Naruto. However, perhaps due to her status, she showed very little experience in stressful situations, falling on her butt after being startled by a smoke bomb.


  • Her name being Chiyo and nearly getting killed by one of Sasori's puppets is a reflection to Sasori going to fight his grandmother Chiyo in the future.
