Haruno Kizashi (春野キザシ) is a shinobi of Konohagakure.


When Sakura was little, Kizashi told her that she should cut her bangs. But he was scolded by his wife. When Sakura became friends with Yamanaka Ino, Kizashi was happy and wanted to meet her. He then told Sakura that she was cute like Mebuki when she was young. However he also told Sakura to get a boyfriend which embrassed her. In the anime, after learning that his daughter was to be taught by Hatake Kakashi. Kizashi and his wife were visited by Kakashi and the Third Hokage, inviting them for tea.


Kizashi is a very jovial and charismatic individual, often times joking with those around him and using puns which at times exasperates his wife, Haruno Mebuki. The dynamics between the two, can easily overwhelm others as they comically squabble over very minor things, leading Yamanaka Ino to even call them "intense as usual". Along with this, Kizashi is very kind and cares a great deal about the welfare of his daughter, Haruno Sakura as seen when he showed great concern over the state he had found his daughter in.


Kizashi is a kind-faced man with blue eyes, and dull-pink hair which is styled into the shape of a cherry blossom — a possible allusion to his daughter's name. He also has sideburns which flow into his angular moustache and a bit of stubble on his chin. He wears a dark, loose-fitting kimono-shirt which has a green, inner-lining and sleeves which extend beyond his kimono shirt. This is held closed by a simple obi which he wears along with a burgundy coloured ¾-length pants, and a pair of simple slippers. He also wears a simple silver necklace with a pink cherry blossom design on it with a single petal being deep red in colour.

Kizashi's alternate self wore the standard attire of the Konoha-nin, inclusive of flak jacket. He however, did not wear the village's forehead protector

Road To Sakura

After coming home from a sale across town with his wife, Kizashi found Ino and a seemingly confused Sakura waiting by their front door. Seeing her parents, Sakura runs off in tears thoroughly confused. Kizashi later found the pendant Sakura had dropped and he and his wife follow after her to return it, wondering what had happened to his daughter. When returning the pendant, he noted that he had a similar one to her and showed it to Sakura. This jogged their daughter's memory who finally understood what was happening and before Ino could explain that Sakura had amnesia, Sakura then tearfully embraced both of her parents, thanking them.

It is later revealed that this Sakura was from Tobi's Genjutsu world, and her necklace was given to her by her father before her parents left to go into battle.
