Themes and Navigation

The interior of Bamitok Shrine

The Bamitok Shrine is a simple Shrine of Light with the sole purpose of rewarding Link for reaching it. It bears a lone pathway in a void marked only by a Treasure Chest.

A Statue of Rauru and Sonia can be found at the end of the Bamitok Shrine. By interacting with the Terminal in front of the Statue, Link can receive a Light of Blessing to cleanse the corruption of Darkness from within him.[2][3]

As with all Shrines of Light, the name of this Shrine is derived from an anagram of a location in Kyoto, Japan. Bamitok Shrine, in Japanese バミトカの祠 (Bamitoka no Hokora), is derived from Kamitoba (上鳥羽, in katakana カミトバ). This area happens to be where Nintendo of Japan's offices are located, and has been used for wordplay before— the specific neighborhood 上鳥羽保戸建町 (Kamitoba Hokodate-chō) is the namesake of the planet Hocotate in the Pikmin series.
