An extremely versatile move, this technique uses chakra to activate the roots in the ground and, using the user of the technique as a reference point, makes wooden pillars appear from left and right. The wooden pillars join together in a dome-shape with the user at the centre. This process can be used to catch the enemy in a double sided attack. Also, in case one confronts the enemy at a short distance, the enemy can be locked up inside the dome, setting the situation for a one-on-one fight. This dome can also be collapsed or burnt with the enemy inside to inflict damage. Furthermore, it functions as an easy shelter against the enemy's long-distance attacks, like shuriken and kunai.
- In the Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations OVA, Hashirama seemingly uses a form of this technique, but creating a much larger wood dome capable of resisting Kurama's Tailed Beast Ball.
- When Yamato used this technique in Naruto 5: Blood Prison, he formed the dome around Naruto for protection, instead of using himself as the reference point.
