The Land of Snow (雪の国, Yuki no Kuni) was the main focus of Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow, in which it had been taken over by a tyrant, Dotō Kazahana, after he killed his brother and predecessor, Sōsetsu Kazahana.
At the end of the movie, the country is renamed to Land of Spring (春の国, Haru no Kuni) and all the snow melts, when the tyrant Dotō was defeated by Naruto Uzumaki. Dotō's niece and Sōsetsu's daughter, Koyuki Kazahana, the princess who escaped ten years ago from her uncle's grasp, assumed her birthright as the country's new daimyō.

The Land of Snow possesses an unusually advanced level of technology when compared to other countries in the Naruto world. Things such as railroads, airships, snow mobiles, power generators and volley guns are commonplace here, though the latter fired salvos of kunai instead of bullets. Additionally, their ninja wear special Chakra Armour that makes them virtually immune to ninjutsu and genjutsu.
