The Kiuyoyou Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is found in the North-East of the Linder’s Brow Region and contains a puzzle that utilizes both Fire and Ice elements. Link will need to use these elements and his abilities to receive the Light of Blessing from this Shrine.
Unlike the Turakawak Shrine in Zelda: TOTK, the Kiuyoyou Shrine has no obstructions outside of it, so that Link can enter it without any trouble. Upon entering it, Link will descend a path that will lead to a room with a Large Ice Block and some Fire coming down from the ceiling on the right.
How To Get The Chest In The Kiuyoyou Shrine
To the left of Link, there will be a closed door, or gate, that needs to be opened. Next to the gate will be a small cube-shaped indention on the wall with a button on the bottom. Link needs something to hold down the button, and then the gate will be opened. The only thing available here is the Ice Block, but it is too large to fit in the indention. Therefore, Link needs to use his Ultrahand ability in Zelda: TOTK to lift the Ice and hold it under the flames until it shrinks. Once it is a little bit smaller, move the Ice back over to the indention and let it go. It should fit nicely now, and open the large door to the left of it.
To open the second door in the first room, Link needs something to weigh down the large button under the flames. The Ice Block alone will not work here because it would melt. Instead, head into the newly unlocked room and glide with the wind on the right up to the far platform. Once there, there will be ice blocks repeatedly dropping and melting in front of more flames and a large moveable slab. Use the slab to block the flames from melting the Ice, then move the Ice away from the flames, and finally attach the slab to the top of the Ice using the Fuse ability in Zelda: TOTK.
They can both now slide down the spikes with the ice side of the combo facing down. Now paraglide over to the lower platform to meet the ice and stone slab at the bottom. To grab the Chest, which is to the left of Link when facing the direction he just came from, detach the slab and Ice and place the Ice on the platform in front of the chest. Then move Link underneath where the Ice is positioned to use the Ascend ability to head up through the platform and cube of Ice to reach the chest. Now, put the slab and Ice Cube back together as they were originally.
How To Complete The Kiuyoyou Shrine
Now that Link has the Ice and Stone Slab combination and has gotten the Chest; he can finish the Shrine’s puzzle. Take the Ice and Stone back into the main room and set them where the Fire is coming straight down over a button. Since the slab is on top of the ice, it will protect it from melting the same way it did previously. Once the two are placed correctly, the final door will open, and Link can approach the Sonia and Rauru Statue in Zelda: TOTK to obtain the Light of Blessing. Link can use this in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom to get more Heart Containers or Stamina Vessels.
