The Mind's Eye of the Kagura is a technique, unique to Karin, that allows her to sense chakra with exceptional detail.


By focusing and opening the mind's eye, Karin is able to find and track an individual's chakra over a vast distance that exceeds ten kilometres. By further focusing her chakra, she can extend this range to far greater distances.[2] This ability also gives her the capability to perceive fluctuations in a person's chakra made when a person is lying or if someone, including herself, is under a genjutsu.[3][4] Also, by focusing on a particular chakra, she can perceive her target's movements and surrounding area with great detail. These sensory capabilities bless Karin with abilities that even surpass dōjutsu with comparable powers.[5]


  • The name comes from the word Kagura (神楽, divine entertainment), which is a type of Japanese theatrical dance, considered by some to have been developed by the goddess Ame-no-Uzume. Its roots lie in certain kinds of divination and pacification of the spirits.
  • Karin uses this technique as her ultimate jutsu in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3, in which she throws a smoke bomb that engulfs both her and her opponent in a pitch-black cloud where neither one of them can see. She then locates her opponent with this technique and throws a kunai with a string of explosive tags attached to it, defeating her opponent in the explosion. When Karin uses this on Sasuke, her demeanour changes and after the explosion she swoons over him.
  • Karin can use this technique in Naruto Shippūden: Kizuna Drive. When used, this technique allows Karin to automatically "dodge" any weak attack for a limited period.
