Mario and Watt in Yoshi's Village as well as many Yoshis
|First appearance||Paper Mario (2000)|
|Greater location||Lavalava Island|
|Inhabitants||Yoshis, Ravens, Sushie, and a Toad|
Yoshi's Village is a small coastal village that is visited during Paper Mario. It is located on Lavalava Island. As its name suggests, the village is entirely inhabited by Yoshis, who are led by the rather plump Village Leader. The buildings in this village are all made of straw, bamboo and other natural materials. There is a Toad House and an item shop named Yoshi's Cabana.
Mario comes upon this village during his journeys in Chapter 5. During his adventures here, he helps a Cheep Cheep named Sushie round up the group of young Yoshis called the Fearsome 5 and return them to their parents. In return for this deed, Mario is given the Jade Raven by the Village Leader, which he uses to gain access to the deeper parts of the thick Jade Jungle.
There is a blue pipe between Toad Town Tunnels and Yoshi's Village. It can only be unlocked after Sushie joins Mario's party.

- "Yoshis seem to love the beach. Just looking at those guys basking in the sun makes me feel very relaxed. And yet, even though I'd love to just sleep on the beach, I'm excited to move on. Nothing compares to adventure, that's for sure!"
- "There's a real tropical resort atmosphere here, isn't there? There's a nice Toad House with beach access, and you can go to the volcano or Jade Jungle."
