Go to the Hateno Village and follow the marker and the location you are trying to reach is on a high cliff. The path ahead is straightforward and you will have no trouble reaching the tower.
Repairing The Sheikah Slate
This tower is the technical lab where Link will have his Sheikah Slate repaired. Now enter the Lab and talk to the young girl named Purah and she will direct you to the back where the director is. Symin is the director and will show an interest in your Sheikah Slate and will request you to let him see the runes on it.
Once he looks at the Sheikah Slate he will note that it is missing the basic runes. However, you will start to notice that Symin does not seems to be the in charge of the Lab and it turns out that Purah is the director of the Lab.
You will have a conversation with Purah in which she will explain a lot of things. She will repair your Sheikah Slate but first you will have to do something for her.
In order to get your Sheikah Slate repaired you need to bring the blue flame from the ancient furnace located in the Town. This blue flame is required to light up the furnace in the Lab.
It is a very simple task, all you have to do is find the blue flame and carry it using the torch from lamp to lamp. It is likely that the torch will break during your journey back to the lab, so keep an eye out for the bushes that will give you sticks when struck.
The lamp will more or less take you straight back to the Lab. Once you have reached the Lab light the furnace outside with your torch and a travel gate will be activated.
Go inside the Lab and talk to Purah about repairing the Sheikah Slate. She will repair the Sheikah Slate and you will get a Camera, Hyrule Compendium, and an Album.
Then Purah will tell Link to take the Sheikah Slate back to Impa, so make your way back to Kakariko Village and talk to Impa. Impa will tell Link to find the locations where the pictures were taken and it will restore some of the lost memories and this will trigger the next quest.
