Very little is known about Shimeji’s past. Due to his limited appearances in the series, little is known about his lineage or background other than the fact that he is an exceptional gardener, capable of growing a garden in a wasteland. Based on the information at hand, he works in several towns surrounding Tanzaku Quarters.
Shimeji first appeared in the Search for Tsunade Arc and in this arc, Sasuke Uchiha rushes to the hotel where Jiraiya and Naruto Uzumaki were staying at the time to rescue, concerned about Naruto’s safety.
