A Wind Release technique, where by using a Giant Folding Fan, the user can freely manipulate gale to cause air currents to collide to create vacuum pockets. The person enveloped by this gale is assaulted by countless invisible blades, carving up their body. Also, the strong wind power will blow away all incoming projectile weapons and will even make the opponent unable to stay on their feet.

Temari has also shown the ability to manipulate the form of the gale, creating a tornado to envelop and lift her opponent, while also cutting them several times. In Part II, she is skilled and accurate enough to cut away the armour of a samurai without injuring the wearer.[2] In the anime, Mitsuki can use this technique through hand seals rather than through use of a fan, changing the shape of the wind to that of a blade.[3]


  • A sickle weasel (窮奇; 鎌鼬, kamaitachi) is a creature from Japanese mythology, said to ride on gusts of wind, cutting people with his sharp, sickle-like claws. Temari's summon: Kamatari, is a sickle weasel.
  • In chapter 464, its name is written as "鎌いたちの術".
  • In the anime, Boruto attempted to use this technique on Iruka to check the rumors on him wearing a wig, but only succeeded in creating a small breeze.[4]
