Tazuna wanted to build a bridge that would connect the Land of Waves to the mainland. He believed that this would help restore its economic stability, which was against Gato's interest. He knew that Gato would try to kill him and he couldn't afford a proper connection. This was the reason why he had hired Team 7 under a false pretense of him needing protection from bandits, which resulted in it being put under the category of a C-rank mission. Unlike most of his fellow citizens, Tazuna was brave enough to defy Gato's interest even though he was aware of the consequences it would bring. In honor of Naruto’s courage, he named the bridge the 'Great Naruto Bridge' after its completion.
