Kaiten Tsutsu (回転筒) was the third obstacle of the Second Stage in KUNOICHI 3-5 and 7, later return as the Pipe Hold in KUNOICHI 9. Similiar to the Burasagari Maruta (which was used in SASUKE 1 and 2), competitors had to run across a 30cm log in diameter that spun that competitors manoeuvre it with a length of 3.8m. The Spinning Log, which was used on several American Ninja Warrior seasons (and many other SASUKE/Ninja Warrior international formats, including Ninja Warrior UK and Australian Ninja Warrior), was based on this obstacle.
