Gakegakure (村は崖に隠れて, Gakegakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden by Cliffs"; also known as "Village Hidden in the Cliffs" or "Hidden Cliff Village") is a hidden village located in the north area of the Land of Earth. The most notable feature of the village is that the spires seem as though they were built upside-down, and because of that, the temple is hidden to the passerby. Its design allows wind to flow into even the deepest chambers, which makes the ninjas with air chakra nature feel quite at home.
The temple was built on the underside of a cliff, causing all of the buildings to appear to hang upside down. There are steps built into the side of the cliff to allow for movement between tiers of the temple and different buildings.
The temple's design allows wind to flow into even the deepest chambers, which made the ninjas with air chakra nature feel quite at home. The temple features some interesting recreational spots, such as a giant Pai Sho table, an all-day echo chamber, an air bison obstacle course, and a racetrack.
Another interesting feature is a series of metal doors used as shields that are located within the fountain area.
