Mount Myōboku (妙木山, Myōbokuzan; English TV "Mount Myoboku"; Literally meaning "Mysterious/Exquisite Tree Mountain"), also known as the "Mountain of Bewilderment" (迷いの山, Mayoi no Yama),[1] is the land of toads, the place where all the toads that Naruto, Minato and Jiraiya have summoned live. It is home for huge and small toads alike. Mount Myōboku is a rich and beautiful land, whose ultimate authority seems to be the Great Toad Sage. Shima and Fukasaku are both elders and sages, and they seem to have an even higher authority than Gamabunta himself.For a human to get to Mount Myōboku, it either takes a month long travel on secret paths from Konohagakure or, if they have a summoning contract, they can let a toad use the Reverse Summoning Technique. According to Fukasaku, Mount Myōboku is impossible to find by foot if you don't know the secret route.[2] In the anime, Jiraiya was transported to Mount Myōboku in his youth via using the summoning technique without a contract.[3] There is a special portal called the Distant Body Water (遠身水, Enshinsui) that links Mount Myōboku and Konohagakure, that enables the smaller toads to quickly travel between the two without the use of the summoning technique.[4]Some of the inhabitants of Mount Myōboku can use senjutsu, to gather natural energy. There is a sacred fountain on Mount Myōboku which produces a special oil that allows people to more easily feel the natural energy around them, but if the person is not perfectly still, becoming one with nature, he or she starts becoming a toad and eventually turns into stone. This oil can only exist in the atmosphere of the mountain, and will evaporate if taken outside. There are many statues of the frog ancestors and of people who tried to learn senjutsu, but failed and became statues. The statues are treated with much respect.
On Mount Myōboku exists a score of musical genjutsu that have passed down since an immemorial time. Of which is a genjutsu that only the two great sage toads have mastered. These genjutsu are very powerful and can only be performed by combining the melody and the lyrics that only the toads can utter.[5]

There is a special location known as Mount Myōboku: Rock Lodging (妙木山・岩宿, Myōbokuzan: Iwayado), where a great, fire-breathing toad resides.

Mount Myōboku has records of its population in a list, and the name of a Mount Myōboku toad stays there until it dies.
