The Josiu Shrine is one of several shrines that can be found in the sky above Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Unlike most shrines, this one allows Link to solve a challenge on the open floating islands in West Necluda, and all you have to do is retrieve a crystal.
Read on as we walk through the steps to solve the Josiu Shrine challenge in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Josiu Shrine Location
Josiu Shrine can be found in West Necluda, Hyrule Sky with coordinates 1759, -1208, 0924. It can be accessed by taking the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower and then gliding east towards the Sky Archipelago.
How to solve Josiu’s Shrine
To resolve Josiu’s Shrine, first interact with the shrine. This shrine is missing the huge rock in the middle, but it will shoot lightning towards the crystal on another island.
Near the crystal bridge is a contraption that can control the curved bridge ahead. Use Ultrahand to make the bridge connect the island where the crystal is and the island to your left (facing the bridge), similar to having the clock hands at 9 and 12.
Then move towards the shrine again and jump over to the other island, the one with four arms attached to a circle. You will see a launcher in the middle of the island and a winch that can rotate the launcher. For now, turn it so the launcher is facing the island to the southeast, the same island you connected the bridge to earlier. Ride the launcher and then land on the next island.
You can then continue to the small island and grab the crystal. Pro Tip: Place the crystal near the edge of the bridge, as it can help you get the crystal closer to the shrine. Just be careful when you turn the bridge later to prevent the crystal from falling off.
Next, all you have to do is return to the first island and turn the bridge to reach the crystal. Return the crystal to the shrine and it will grow to become the shrine itself.
Once you solve Josiu Shrine, you’ll be one step closer to completing all 152 shrines in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. You can go to our other Shrine guides to collect more Light of Blessing and chests:
