The Post Office is a recurring location in the The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2][3][4]

Appearances

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the Post Office is located in West Clock Town. It is open from 3 PM to 12 AM on the First and Second Day. The Postman resides here, and can usually be seen mentally training on his bed.[5] Link may receive a Piece of Heart as a reward by playing a game with the Postman. The game is won by stopping at exactly 10 seconds on the timer.[6] Equipping the Bunny Hood during the challenge keeps the timer displayed, which normally becomes invisible after 3 seconds. A calendar, a map, and a clock can be seen on the wall. There is also a dressing room in the back where the Postman keeps his hat and backpack.

Oracle of Ages

In Oracle of Ages, the Post Office is located in Lynna Village in the past. Inside the Office, Link will find the Postman, who plays a role in the Trading Sequence. Link can trade him the Poe Clock in return for the Stationery, the second item in the Sequence. In the present, it is replaced by Mayor Plen's House.

The Wind Waker

Main article: Mail Center

In The Wind Waker, the Mail Center has an arch on the second floor that says "Post Office" in Hylian. The area is the headquarters of the Island Postal Service. Here Link can play the Mail Center minigame in which he helps Koboli or Baito sort letters.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, the Post Office is located in Hyrule Town. It is where Stamp and Marcy work, as well as the Postman, who runs around town delivering letters. After fusing Kinstones with the Postman, Link can buy the Swordsman Newsletter published by Swiftblade at the Post Office. They contain secrets and techniques for playing the game.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, the first Postman's first Mail Delivery to Link is a Letter entitled "Post Office Notice". No actual Post Office appears in the game, however.
