The Tree of Knowledge, a 5000-year-old enormous library tree surrounded by homes, was the significance of Ohara. Ohara is too small to have any further locations.
When the Tree of Knowledge was first established on this very island, Ohara was a sovereign nation for 5000 years. For millennia, scholars and archaeologists who studied history, a practice that the World Government approved of. Archaeologist Nico Olivia (Nico Robin’s mother) encountered Jaguar D. Saul while traveling off the island in search of information concerning the Void Century. Saul helped her escape and eventually made it to Ohara, where he became friends with Nico Robin.
The government ordered the island’s annihilation via the Buster Call after learning that the researchers were studying the prohibited Poneglyphs and the Void Century. Sakazuki and Kuzan, a close friend of Saul, were two of the Vice Admirals dispatched to carry out the attack. As numerous Poneglyphs also include knowledge concerning the Ancient Weapons, the government used propaganda to demonize the people of Ohara, claiming that they were seeking to use the forbidden knowledge for global destruction. Nico Robin, who was labeled a criminal due to her ability to read Poneglyphs, is the only survivor of Ohara.
Ohara was mainly populated with archaeologists and researchers, who were studying the Void Century to discover the missing history of the world.

Nico Robin secretly studied the method to decode the Poneglyphs in Ohara’s library when she was just a child.

Ohara is credited with drawing inspiration from England in Rurubu One Piece. This distinction is also held by Syrup Village and Foosha Village.
The word “Ohara” may have its origins in Old Hara, the oldest tree in the world at more than 5,000 years old.
