Sasa Kai is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The quest to unlock it, named the Sign of the Shadow quest, is a puzzle that has you shoot an arrow at the Sun during a certain time of day. Get it right, and you'll walk out a success.

If you need help finding and solving other Shrines, our Zelda: Breath of the Wild Shrine of Trials locations page can help, while our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough and guide covers other aspects of the game.

Where to find Sasa Kai

The Sasa Kai shrine is located within the Gerudo region, specifically just a short distance to the south-east of Gerudo Tower. To get there, fast-travel to (or climb) Gerudo Tower, and then speak to Kass, who's up at the top and gives you the shrine quest.

Kass will give you his riddle Pierce heaven's light to reveal the prize and then it's time to go solve it.

Sasa Kai and Sign of the Shadow quest solution

First, glide down to the platform you can see just to the south-east, below.

Then, wait until around 3pm (you can fast-forward to noon by lighting a fire and sitting at it).

73c

At 3pm, look towards the tower, and you'll see the Sun lining up just above it. Draw an arrow and shoot at the Sun, just above the top of the tower, and it'll reveal the shrine.
