Wutai Village is the primary settlement on the nation of Wutai in Final Fantasy VII. It is Yuffie Kisaragi's hometown. The village is located on the north of the island on the west side of the world map. Visiting Wutai is completely optional.
The player can reach the island after acquiring the Tiny Bronco, but the sidequest can be completed any time, even with Tifa or Cid as party leader. If Yuffie is in the party when the player acquires the plane, she will suggest going that way. After Yuffie has been obtained as a playable character, she will come up and steal the party's Materia when they enter the island.
During this event the party is ambushed by Shinra soldiers, and during the ruckus Yuffie escapes with the Materia. After this the player can no longer leave the island before having recovered their lost Materia; the party leader simply refuses to board the Tiny Bronco or Highwind. Yuffie can carry 50 Materia at most, so if the player has more than 50, they won't lose all of their Materia, however, Yuffie prioritizes stealing high level and rare Materia first.
Once the party enters the village they must locate Yuffie, and none of the shops agree to sell anything to the player before she has been found. She can be found hiding in the Materia Shop, stealing the Materia the player takes from the chest. She can also be found in the room with the old man and a girl hiding behind the screen. Finally Yuffie hides in the pot outside Turtle's Paradise bar, where the player can get her.
Yuffie leads the player to a base of a house where she promises to give back their Materia. Instead, she traps the party under a cage and escapes yet again. North of the village the player can enter a big house where the village elder, Godo Kisaragi, resides, to witness a scene. After leaving the house the player can play the gong opposite of the house to open a secret passage way, where they find Don Corneo has kidnapped both Yuffie and Elena, a member of the Turks who was on a holiday at Wutai. Don Corneo escapes with his hostages and the player must team up with the Turks Reno and Rude to search the Da Chao mountains.
On the mountains the player finds Don Corneo with his hostages, but he is not willing to give them up, and instead sends Rapps at the party. After defeating Rapps the Turks intervene and dispose of Corneo. Yuffie is so grateful of having been rescued she gives back the party's Materia, plus the MP Absorb Materia she stole earlier.
After the quest the player can buy stock from the village shops, visit the "Cat House" to obtain a Materia, and visit the Pagoda with Yuffie in the party to do another sidequest (see below).
If the player completes the sidequest before returning to Midgar at the end of disc 2, they get an option not to fight the Turks in the winding tunnel.
Old Man's HouseEdit
During Yuffie's sidequest, she hides behind the screen. This is the second location where she hides, following the Item Shop.
A HP Absorb Materia can be found upstairs after Yuffie's quest has been completed.
Turtle's Paradise Flyer #6 can be found here during or after Yuffie's quest. After Yuffie is caught in the jar outside of Turtle's Paradise, she takes the party here and imprisons them in a steel cage.
The party cannot buy anything here during Yuffie's quest.

After completing Yuffie's quest, the five bosses can be battled one on one by Yuffie - one in each floor. After completing the quest the player earns the Leviathan Summon Materia. Godo will also drop the All Creation item, the final Limit Break for Yuffie.
