Secret of the Cedars
During the daytime at Hateno Village, Link will find Clavia standing at the dock, just east of the Kochi Dye Shop. When speaking with Clavia, she references the three trees up on the snowy mountain and that when the summit trees become one, Link should turn his back to them and head toward the sea. The three trees make a straight line and she later suggests that Link must head directly east from there, towards the Afromsia Coast. Here there is a trial encased in stone.
The trial encased in stone is reference to a shrine that is hidden just behind a bombable wall. It is located just west of the small set of trees that are on the mountain. Link can blast it open with a bomb to reveal the Tahno O'ah Shrine, completing the Shrine Quest.

You solved the riddle of the three cedar trees and discovered the hero's trial.
- ↑ You see those three trees up on top of that snowy mountain there? I found a small letter stuck between the pages of this old book at my house... It said, "When the three summit trees become one, turn your back to them and head toward the sea. A trial encased in stone awaits you there." I don't know what that means! But maybe it means we have to head to Afromsia Coast, which is just east of those three trees on the mountain! For the "trial encased in stone..." but, I wonder if you get some kind of treasure for doing that... But I have a child! I can't just go off on a journey across the mountains... But you can do that, right?! You'd be great at that! Go on! Head out there and bring us back that treasure! - Clavia
