The town of Wutai is where Yuffie is from. It is located on the westernmost continent and cannot be reached until you have the Tiny Bronco or the Highwind.
Going to Wutai is entirely optional. Wutai is involved in two side quests that you can complete - one which involves Yuffie stealing all of your team’s Materia and one which involves obtaining Yuffie’s Ultimate Weapon and Level 4 Limit Break. Check out the two side quests by clicking on the links below:

You can also reach the Da-Chao Fire Cavern from Wutai. Just travel to the mountains at the back of the village and then up the Da-Chao Statue.
