Zelda: TOTK | Kiuyoyou Shrine – How To Solve – Guide

To solve the Kiuyoyou Shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you must handle and transport large blocks of ice while dealing with fire elements. Quickness is essential to prevent the ice blocks from melting and restarting the process. Learn how to do it from the guide below. 

How To Solve the Kiuyoyou Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: TOTK

The shrine has two button pedestals: one small and one large, each requiring a block of ice. Activating the smaller button is straightforward—melt the first block of ice until it’s small enough to fit on the pedestal. However, the larger button is more challenging.

It is located beneath searing flames that rapidly melt the ice block unless you can block the fire. Although not as difficult as the Great Sky Island shrines in Zelda’s Tears of the Kingdom, the Kiuyoyou Shrine still requires some skill. Here is a step-by-step guide to solving it using the Ultrahand ability.

Kiuyoyou Shrine Location

The Kiuyoyou Shrine is north of Hyrule Ridge, just up the road from one of the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom geoglyphs that Impa helped you discover. Look for its green glow, and you’ll find the shrine. Refer to the provided map for its exact location.

How To Solve The Kiuyoyou Shrine Puzzle

Step 1

Upon entering the Kiuyoyou Shrine, you’ll see a block of ice near jets of fire. Use the Ultrahand ability to lift the ice block and hold it in flames for a few seconds, partially melting it.

Then, place the block on the orange square button on your left to proceed to the next part of the puzzle.

Step 2

Use a gust of wind to glide to a raised platform on the other side of the chamber. There, you’ll see another block of ice descending into flames and melting instantly. Try to catch the ice cube before it hits the ground and quickly move it out of harm’s way.

To protect the ice from melting, you can use a concrete slab positioned against the wall. Pick up the slab and place it over the flames, allowing the ice cube to land safely.

Step 3

Attach the ice block to the concrete slab using the Ultrahand. You’ll need this combination to block the flames on top of the second button below the fire that melted the first ice block near the shrine’s entrance.

Place the cube and slab on the slippery slope, with the ice facing downward. The ice should slide down to the other side of the room. Jump off the ledge and glide back down to meet it.

Step 4

Finally, use the large block of ice to press the last button. Ensure that the ice block faces downward and lift it into the flames. The concrete slab should protect the ice from melting, and the weight of the sufficiently large ice block should press the second button, unlocking the door to the innermost shrine chamber.

You can now claim the Light of Blessing at the Kiuyoyou Shrine altar.
