The Grasslands make up the perfect sparring field

Beyond the Lake of Collection are the Grasslands and the Forbidden Forest. While being outside of the city, both of them are still within Amegakureís territory. The grasslands are plain and go for a long distance until the forest, providing a good area for Shinobi to spar or simply practice their jutsu. The forest on the other hand holds many secrets and houses many creatures, some dark and dangerous, others friendly. The trees in the forest are considered ancient, they are dense and rough looking from years of exposure to the elements. Unlike the forestís name suggests, it is not forbidden to enter it. However, with the various dangerous creatures living inside, few would even want to venture into it.
