The Land of Birds (鳥の国, Tori no Kuni) is a small country located between the Land of Wind and the Land of Earth. In the anime, Naruto, Neji, and Tenten were sent to the country to investigate the rumour of a ghost called the Cursed Warrior, as well as protect the daimyō, Sagi. They eventually learned that a group of wandering ninja called the Watari ninja was hoping to take over the country through a complex conspiracy. These ninja were defeated in the end. This land gets its name from the large number of birds that migrate to it each year.
