Users

After performing the required hand seals, the user creates a number of gigantic wooden hands that erupt upward from beneath the ground, which encircle and then attempt to restrain a chosen enemy. The size of each of these hands is around the size of a tailed beast. Hashirama is shown to be able to manifest two hands with sheer will alone, without the use of hand seals.

Influence

This technique seems to be influenced by Budai (布袋, Budai), also known as Hotei in Japanese. He is almost always shown smiling or laughing, hence his nickname: the Laughing Buddha. In Japan, Hotei persists in folklore as one of the Seven Lucky Gods of Taoism.
