Skyward Sword Goddess Cubes Locations and Chests

Activating these Goddess Cubes will spawn a treasure chest in Skyloft. To activate the Goddess Cube, charge a Skyward Strike and let it go in the direction of the Cube. It will disappear into the sky and re-appear as a treasure chest in Skyloft.

Which makes finding these Cubes and Chests, a two-step process. First, you will have to locate the Goddess Cube, then find the corresponding chest, and get your reward.
