This is the gateway between Maruishi and Iwagakure. The area is marked by a flat piece of stone that overlooks the water on the cliffs that house the city of Maruishi. Iwagakure is located on the cliff face under Maruishi, the very city is carved into the stone. To enter Iwagakure the easy way to enter is to fall. By falling, an entrant can enter the hidden city. While all shinobis must be creative as to avoid injury or be exceptionally durable as the landing area is a large plateau of stone, even the untrained can enter if they are willing to suffer a few broken bones. Exiting Iwagakure is also done through this "gate" but rather than climb to the city above, shinobi leap into the sea and then swim to the rocky shores and then follow one of many dirt trails back into the city. Guardians watch the sea from their perches on the cliff face and keep an inventory of who has come and who has yet to return.
