'''Horon Village''' is the largest town and one of the central hubs within ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons|Oracle of Seasons]]''.Much like [[Lynna City]] and [[Lynna Village]] from ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages|Oracle of Ages]]'', a bulk of the population lives in this central town. [[Link]] will travel through Horon Village early on in his quest and will return often as he visits important locations including the [[Maku Tree (Oracle of Seasons)|Maku Tree]] and [[Vasu Jewelers]]. The seasons of Horon Village are in whack, causing stress on many of the villagers.{{Ref|OoS|518|Horon Villager}}{{Ref|OoS|523|Horon Villager}}{{Ref|OoS|543|Horon Gardener}}
Horon Village can be found at the southern portion of [[Holodrum]] and is one of the first locations that [[Link]] will travel to on his journey. Link first enters the village from [[North Horon]], located just to the north of the Village, as its name suggests. There are two other entrances to Horon Village. To the West, Link will find the [[Western Coast]], and to the East, Link can reach the [[Eastern Suburbs]].
[[File:Horon-Village-Fountain.png|thumb|left|Horon Village Fountain]]Link first visits Horon Village at the very start of his journey, shortly after [[Din (Oracle)|Din]] has been captured by [[Onox]]. [[Impa]] will send Link to the village to meet with the Maku Tree.{{Ref|OoS|759|[[Impa]]}} Once Link arrives in town, he can speak with the townsfolk, but they do not recognize Link. However, they will point Link in the direction of the Maku Tree.{{Ref|OoS|574|Horon Villager}} When Link tries to visit the Maku Tree, the gate is closed. The sign in front indicates that Link must first show courage before he can meet the Maku Tree.{{Ref|OoS|847|[[Maku Tree (Oracle of Seasons)|Maku Tree]] Gate Sign}} Link can show his courage by acquiring the [[Wooden Sword]] from the [[Hero's Cave]] at the Western Coast. During Link's first journey through the town, many of the villagers will assist him along his way by giving him clues. The man near the [[Tree Stump]] and the [[Painter]] both advise Link about acquiring a [[Sword]], with the Painter mentioning the [[Hero's Cave]] to the west.{{Ref|OoS|537|Horon Villager}}{{Ref|OoS|527|[[Painter]]}} Horon Village is completely free of any enemies, which allows the residents of the Village the roam freely throughout, without having to be worried about being attacked. {{Ref|OoS|576|Woman in Horon Village}} At the center of the village, a Water Fountain can be found. Right next to the fountain itself Link will find a [[Painter]]. Unlike the majority of residents of Horon Village, the Painter will stay put at his location regardless of the changing seasons.{{Ref|OoS|530|[[Painter]]}}
Just south of the Water Fountain and the Painter, Link will find the lone [[Tree Stump]] located in Horon Village. Next to the stump, the man will explain that seasons of Horon Village have run amuck.{{Ref|OoS|538|Horon Village Resident}} Link can use the [[Rod of Seasons]] on this particular Tree Stump to change the season. However, Link can alternatively just leave and re-enter the Village, as the seasons will constantly change each time Link reenters the Village.
Next to the Tree Stump, Link fill find a staircase that leads to a [[Subrosian Portal|Portal]] that takes him to the land of [[Subrosia]]. Link will first need to travel to the [[House of Pirates]] within Subrosia before he can hit the lever inside this cave, making for easy navigation between Horon Village and Subrosia. At the southwest corner of the village, just west of [[Bipin]] and [[Blossom]]'s house, Link will find a [[Treasure Chest]] in the distance. The pathway to the treasure chest is blocked off in all seasons, but if Link comes here in Autumn, [[Rock Mushroom]]s block his pathway. After acquiring the [[Power Bracelet]] from [[Snake's Remains]], Link can pick up these mushrooms. The treasure chest contains 20 Rupees. [[File:Horon-Village-Mystical-Tree.png|thumb|left|[[Mystical Tree]] growing [[Ember Seed]]s]]One screen South of [[Vasu Jewelers]], Link will find a [[Mystical Tree]] that grows [[Ember Seed]]s. Unlike in ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages|Oracle of Ages]]'', Mystical Trees will only grow certain seeds during certain months. Ember Seeds can only be grown during [[Winter]]. Link will need to first acquire the [[Seed Satchel]] from the [[Gnarled Root Dungeon]] before he can carry Ember Seeds. If Link tries to grab them beforehand, he will burn himself.{{Ref|OoS|53|Link at the Mystical Tree in Horon Village}} The Mystical Tree also serves as a warp point. Once Link acquires [[Gale Seed]]s later in his quest, he can warp to any Mystical Tree that he has uncovered. The exit at the east portion of Horon Village, leading to the Eastern Suburbs is initially blocked off by some trees. After Link has acquired the Ember Seeds from the Gnarled Root Dungeon, he will be able to burn these trees down. Link will meet up with [[Sokra]], the traveling prophet who tells Link that his next destination is at the [[Temple of Seasons]].{{Ref|OoS|1622|Sokra}} At the North end of town, near the exit that leads to North Horon, Link will find a young child that talks about the [[Blast Bloom]] flower. During Spring the boy can be seen playing with the flower, while he stands near it in the Summer and Autumn.{{Ref|OoS|552|Horon Village Child}}{{Ref|OoS|553|Horon Village Child}}{{Ref|OoS|554|Horon Village Child}} Just west of the young child, Link will find a woman who farms the land regardless of the season. Early on in the quest she will complain about the weather conditions in Horon Village, but later on, she will give Link some tips concerning Magical Rings.{{Ref|OoS|544-546|Horon Villager}}
