Breath of the Wild ‘Locked Mementos’ guide and walkthrough

To the Ancient Tech Lab

After speaking with Impa in Kakariko Village and completing the Seek out Impa quest, you need to make you way to the Ancient Tech Lab in Hateno Village. In this guide, we’ll show you how to do that.

How to get to Hateno Village and the Ancient Tech Lab

Head northwest from Kakariko Village, following the route on the map above. You’ll arrive at the westernmost gate. The Ancient Tech Lab is at the easternmost point in the city. Just follow the central road through and along a long and winding path up a hill.

There are plenty of things to do along your path, including meeting the townsfolk and visiting three shops and an inn.

The Ancient Tech Lab

Inside the Ancient Tech Lab, speak to Symon and then Purah, the director. She’ll ask you to light the furnace just outside of the door, using a blue flame.

There’s a lit furnace down the hill from the Ancient Tech Lab. Make your way there, light the flame and huff it back up to light the furnace. Speak to Purah, and she’ll upgrade your Sheikah Slate with the camera (and have you take her picture).

Pictures from the past

The camera also has 12 pictures from the past on it and opens the Captured Memories quest.

Purah will send you back to Impa in Kakariko Village, so either retrace the steps you took to get here (except in reverse) or fast travel to the Ta’loh Naeg shrine, if you’ve unlocked the waypoint.

Before you leave, talk to Symin to unlock the Sunshroom Sending side quest. It won't take long to complete, and it will unlock a new ability and the Hyrule Compendium on your Sheikah slate.

Kakariko Village

Back in Kakariko Village, speak to Impa, and she’ll give you the champion’s tunic, a shirt that displays your enemies’ life bar and hit points above their heads.
