How To Complete Jochisiu Shrine In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Ice Blocks are your keys to success in finding Jochisiu Shrine.

Jochisiu Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is another unique shrine in terms of availability. It doesn’t appear on the shrine sensor and is not present on Hyrule’s map at all.

To make Jochisiu Shrine appear in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you must complete a unique side quest involving ice blocks as keys. This may sound easy on paper but finding and unlocking this shrine is a difficult task. Let us help you with our detailed step-by-step guide below.

Jochisiu Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Jochisiu Shrine is hidden in West Necluda and can only be unlocked by completing a side quest. To find this shrine, head to the Squabble River, south of Dueling Peaks. This area is to the northeast of Popla Foothills Skyview Tower.

Talk to the Steward Construct at (0951, -1897, 0017). It will tell you that it is guarding a secret shrine, and you can only access it by completing the Keys Born of Water shrine quest.

Jochisiu Shrine Walkthrough

To unlock and enter Jochisiu Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you need to complete the Keys Born of Water quest. The objective of this quest is to create ice slabs from water and use them as keys near the steward construct.

1. Turn back and go to the shore of the Squabble River.

2. Throw ice fruit in the water (Hold the R button and press D-pad UP) to create ice blocks.

3. Pick up the ice block with Ultrahand and return to where the Steward construct is.

4. Rotate the ice block to match the shape in the wall (see picture for reference above). Place the ice block in the hollow shape and repeat with the rest.

5. As each shape is smaller than the previous, you will need to melt the ice a bit to fit them properly. You can use any fire weapon or create a campfire to do so.


You can also use a dragon head from the shelf to the right to create ice slabs from the water.

6. Once you have fit all three ice blocks in their respective places, the Keys Born of Water quest will end, and the Jochisiu Shrine will appear. Use the Ascend ability to reach the top of the area to locate the shrine.

7. As Jochisiu is a Rauru’s blessing shrine, there are no combat or puzzle challenges inside. Enter it and open the treasure chest to obtain a Big Battery.

8. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to complete the Jochisiu shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and earn a Light of Blessing as a reward. You can exchange four Lights of Blessing at any Goddess Statue to either increase your health or stamina.
