Minatomo (Wano)

Minatomo (Wano)

For the gag character of the same name from the SBS and early series filler, see Minatomo (East Blue).

Minatomo is a legendary carpenter in Wano Country and the leader of a guild that Franky joined to get access to the blueprints of Kaidou’s fortress. He is related to another person, whose name is also Minatomo, who is a descendant of someone who traveled from Wano to East Blue.


Minatomo is a short, elderly man with tanned skin, dark gray hair, and a stern look on his face. He also has a scar on his left cheek. He wears working clothes in varying shades of blue and has a rope tied around his forehead (a nejiri-hachimaki).


He appreciates talented carpenters as he praised Franky for his superior craftsmanship, albeit in a rude and grumpy manner, much to the latter’s annoyance.

Abilities and Powers

Minatomo is an extremely skilled carpenter, having been the one who built Kaidou’s residence on Onigashima. Furthermore, he owns his own carpenter guild, of which Franky was temporarily a member, and as such, has an entire guild of carpenters that follow his orders.



According to Kin’emon, Minatomo built Kaidou’s residence in Onigashima in Wano Country. Ten years before the present, he sold the blueprints to a pawn shop.

Sometime upon Franky’s arrival in Wano, Minatomo hired him as a carpenter. Later, Minatomo praised Franky for the wall he built.

Sometime later when Franky discussed with him about letting him see the blueprints of Kaidou’s fortress, Minatomo revealed that he just remembered that he had sold the blueprints to a pawn shop ten years ago. Furious, Franky lashed out at Minatomo, who then fired Franky.

Minatomo later visited a bathhouse.
