Location of Kyokugon Shrine

You can find this shrine in a cave near the Great Plateau North Chasm under Coordinates (-0710, -1550, 0006). The quickest way I’ve found to get here is to drive to Hyrule Field Tower and then walk south.

Once you’ve spotted the Great Plateau Foothill Cave here, you’ll find that the path forward is blocked with boulders. There are layers of rock here that you shouldn’t waste bombs on or pound on with weapon durability. You can, but I came here after completing Fire Temple and found it easy to use Yunobo’s ability to easily breach this rock tunnel.

On the way to the shrine you will encounter some Horriblins in the cave. Defeat them and keep going as it’s quite a linear path and you’ll arrive at Kyokugon Shrine before long.
