He eventually settled down in that village that was named after him and started his own family. He even started training the villagers in swordsmanship.


Location


One of the famous locations of the village is the Isshin Dojo. It is a kenjutsu school, a school of Japanese Swordsmanship. Koushiro was the owner of this dojo and he is also the father of Zoro’s dead childhood friend Kuina.
