Users

This technique utilises the power of the Wood Release to forcibly suppress a tailed beast's chakra. The user produces the "sit" (, za) kanji in his palm, and by touching the tailed beast, or its jinchūriki, with their hand, the user suppresses the chakra inside an area lined with ten pillars.[2] When Yamato used this technique to suppress Naruto's four-tailed form, Naruto needed to be in possession of the First Hokage's Necklace to seal the Nine-Tails' chakra.

When Hashirama used it on a tailed beast directly, rather than a jinchūriki, he circumvented the use of the pillars and channelled the tailed beast control through his Wood Release: Wood Human Technique, which could even overwrite the control of a tailed beast controlled by the Sharingan.[3]

Influence

"Jijun" (耳順) is a Japanese term used for people in their sixties. It comes from a saying by Confucius, liùshí ér ěr shùn (六十而耳顺), that is most commonly translated as "At sixty, my ear was obedient" and means that at age sixty, one is able to hear all things without being unhappy about them.

The last part of this technique's name, "Kakuan Nitten Suishu" (廓庵入鄽垂手), comes from a famous series of short poems and accompanying images, called the Ten Bull Pictures (十牛図, Jūgyū-zu, Chinese: Shíniú-tú). The pictures and poems are intended to illustrate the stages of Zen discipline.

They were drawn by a twelfth-century Chinese Zen master called Kuòān (廓庵, Japanese: Kakuan). The tenth poem talks about how the fully-enlightened herdsman returns to the city to help others reach enlightenment. This poem is called Rùchán Chuíshǒu (入鄽垂手, Japanese: Nitten Suishu), which can be translated as "entering society with bliss-bringing hands" (i.e. hands that teach how to reach enlightenment).

Trivia

  • In Shippūden episode 376, when Yamato is performing this technique to suppress Kurama's chakra from leaking out of Naruto, he got motion sickness from riding the ever-shaking palanquin. As a gag, the kanji on Yamato's hand changed to "drunken" (, yo), as he was on the verge of vomiting.
