YamaSaku is a Het ship between Yamato and Sakura Haruno in the Naruto series.


Sakura first met Yamato when he was assigned as their team leader to on a mission to go to Orochimaru's lair and retrieve Sasuke. Sai was also assigned on this mission and fought with Naruto and Sakura a lot so Yamato threatened to trap them in a prison for the night. At one point, Sai refused to catch Sakura when she was falling off of a cliff so Yamato had to catch her instead. She was also feeling down about not being able to help Naruto when he went out of control so Yamato reassured her.


YamaSaku only has a small amount of popularity in the Naruto fandom. It is mostly shipped as an alternative to KakaSaku as the two also at a student and teacher relationship and Yamato has also reassured Sakura when she was upset. YamaSaku mostly rivals KakaSaku but also rivals other Sakura pairings such as SasuSaku and NaruSaku.
