The cemetery.

The Konoha Cemetery is where citizens of the village are buried and is located at its outskirts.[1] The cemetery has a sculpture at the front, representing the Will of Fire of the village, and has the kanji for Hokage (火影, Literally meaning: Fire Shadow) inscribed on its base.

When Kakashi Hatake came to visit Rin Nohara's grave, he confided to the gravestone of Kushina Uzumaki's impending labour. This became instrumental to the tragedy that would befall Konoha soon, as Obito Uchiha returned to the village and overheard this confidential information while he went to visit Rin's grave as well. Before making use of this information, Obito contemptuously threw aside the flowers that Kakashi placed onto Rin's grave.[2]

In the anime, Academy students are shown performing cemetery maintenance, such as gravestone cleaning and replacement of flowers.[1] Kabuto Yakushi, on the other hand, defiled the graves of several famous Konoha shinobi so that he could perform Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation.[3]
