The Akimichi Clan (秋道一族, Akimichi Ichizoku) is one of the four noble clans of Konohagakure.
Members of the clan possess great physical strength and are able to quickly convert calories into chakra, which they then use in their various secret techniques. The clan members wear plate armour along with the kanji for "food" (食, shoku) on the their clothing.
The Akimichi clan has a special relationship with the Nara and Yamanaka clan. These three families have formed the "Ino–Shika–Chō" trios, named after the first part of the names of the members with the Akimichi members being the "Chō" in the trio.
