Not to be confused with Impa's Refuge.

Impa's House is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Features and Overview

Ocarina of Time

Impa's House is located in the southern area of Kakariko Village. The exterior of the House is the same as the other houses in the Village, yet it is larger in terms of size. It has two distinct entrances: front and rear, the latter being only accessible through either the Hookshot or Kaepora Gaebora (from Death Mountain as child). It leads to the interior of a cage that contains both a Piece of Heart and a Cow. Although only one unnamed man is found inside the house during the day, at night it is inhabited by the Cucco Lady. After the 7 year timeskip, the Blue Juggler has moved into the house too. In Ocarina of Time 3D, the house is slightly revamped on the inside, where it now contains tips for playing, along with a map of Hyrule.

Even though the House belongs to Impa, she is never inside due to her duties as the protector of Princess Zelda. She left the House in hands of the villagers.[3]

If Link steps on the pillow upstairs, he will find a Red Rupee.
