Temari summons Kamatari, a one-eyed sickle-holding weasel, by wiping blood on her Giant Folding Fan as payment for the contract and then swings it. The fan whips up a tempest and summons Kamatari who rides the wind, slashing through everything it touches. The effects of the technique stretch outwards for several hundred metres. The swirling winds also whip up trees, boulders, and other forms of debris, which then rain down on the helpless enemy. It is highly effective when surrounded on all sides, when the enemy's position is relatively unknown, or when the enemy is hiding behind a shield.
One of this technique's weaknesses is the fact that it exposes the user's position; however, it needs no hand signs, and thus can be delivered in an instant.
- The reading of the name of this technique is a Japanese expression that means "whirling; going round and round; rushing a person off his feet", just like the winds Kamatari brings with it literally blow away everything that stand in its path.
