For the Marine Vice Admiral, see Tsuru.

O-Tsuru is a tea house owner who lives in the Kuri region in Wano Country.[2] She is also the wife of Kin'emon.[3]


Tsuru has dark hair tied into a bun with a crane hairpin. She has a prominent nose and lipstick. She wears a kimono with crane patterns and a large ribbon with polka dots in the back.[2]


Tsuru is a very kind and compassionate woman. Upon seeing Tama being badly poisoned, Tsuru offered to help her.[2] She can be very forceful when helping people as shown when she angrily scolded Tama for refusing to eat the dish she prepared for her.[4] Kiku also stated Tsuru would never accept people refusing her help. Tsuru has an extremely refined and sophiscated personality as she always speaks to people in a courteous manner and is always ready to repay other people for helping her. After Zoro rescued her from some of Kaido's thugs, she quickly offered to repay him, and that she sneaked aboard Komachiyo's tail when Zoro and Luffy retreated in order to not lose sight of them as she wished to express her gratitude.




Tsuru is the wife of Kin'emon.[5] She is apparently faithful to Kin'emon since she did not remarry after 20 years. Kin'emon was glad to hear that she was alright and he is concerned for her well-being as he went to rescue her after seeing Kaido in Kuri.[6]

Kozuki FamilyEdit

She seems nostalgic of the days when the Kozuki Family ruled over Wano Country.[7]


As an employee under Tsuru, Kiku listens to her orders. [2]. Kiku is aware she is the wife of Kin'emon though Tsuru does not seem to recognize her.[8]

Roronoa ZoroEdit

Tsuru was very grateful to Roronoa Zoro for saving her and wanted to repay her debt. She offered to treat his wounds, and she calls him "Sir Green". She was also impressed of how Zoro and Monkey D. Luffy managed to ward off Basil Hawkins.[2]


Tsuru knows Tama and knowing she drank from a contaminated river after seeing her in a seriously ill state, she wanted to treat her at her tea house instead of taking her to a doctor.[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As the owner of the tea house in Okobore Town, Tsuru has the highest authority within the establishment. She is knowledgeable of herbs, utilizing Jagan Grass (邪含草 Jagan-sō?) to brew a medicinal tea to heal Tama from the poison she ingested.[2] She is also a good cook.[9]


Wano Country ArcEdit

At a wasteland in the Kuri region, Tsuru was assaulted by Kaido's thugs until Roronoa Zoro came to her rescue. She wanted to repay him, but Zoro was only interested in booze.[1]

She then hid in Komachiyo's tail as Zoro and Monkey D. Luffy were confronted by Basil Hawkins and his men. When the komainu dragged the two Straw Hats away from the battle, she introduced herself to them. Upon seeing Tama in critical condition, she asked them to bring Tama to her tea shop where she could make medicine for her. They later arrived at Okobore Town.[2]

After healing Tama, Tsuru gave her some delicious foods to eat. Tsuru then told Luffy and Zoro the story about Okobore Town before Zoro saved her from an arrow fired by the gifter Batman. During the confusion, Tama was abducted by Gazelleman. As Zoro and Luffy joined Kiku and Komachiyo in the pursuit, Tsuru was amazed by Luffy's ability to stretch.[10]

Sometime after Luffy, Zoro, and Kiku left, a villager visited Tsuru and asked her for some herbs for his ill child.[11] Tsuru was later overjoyed when Luffy's group returned with a cart of food.[12]

When Kaido arrived at Kuri, a villager told Tsuru to flee.[13] After Kaido left, Tsuru tended to an injured man.[14]


  • Tsuru (?) is Japanese for "crane."
  • Her name is based on Tsuru no Ongaeshi (鶴の恩返し? lit. "Crane's Return of a Favor"), a story from Japanese folklore about a crane who returns a favor to a man.
  • Tsuru's appearance is reminiscent of people in Ukiyo-e paintings.
