Wrestling Hinokuni (レスリング火の国, Resuringu Hinokuni) is an annual professional wrestling event promoted by New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). The event was established in 2015 and takes place in late April between the larger G1 Supercard and Wrestling Dontaku events. The event is held in Mashiki, Kumamoto and its name refers to the nickname of Kumamoto Prefecture, "Land of Fire" (火の国, Hinokuni).[1] The 2017 event was canceled due to the 2017 Kumamoto earthquakes and later it was replaced by Wrestling Toyonokuni, taking place in Beppu, Ōita, but returned in 2018 under the Wrestling Hinokuni later was replaced by Wrestling Satsuma no Kuni.
