Not to be confused with Kasuto.

Old Kasuto,[1] also simply known as Kasuto,[2][note 1] is a location in The Adventure of Link.

Features and Overview

Old Kasuto was attacked and destroyed by monstrous Moas, forcing its people to flee,[4] although one Old Man stayed behind.[5] Upon Link's first arrival to Old Kasuto, the Moas who have taken over the town are invisible to him, and only by possessing the Cross can the young hero see these flying creatures. The Old Man who is left here informs Link that the town is deserted, and that he must look in the woods to the east in order to find the new village of Kasuto.[6] Once Link has obtained all of the eight Magic Containers, the Old Man will reward him with his most powerful magic yet, the Thunder spell. Link can also find a hint on the location of the Magical Key written on a wall in one of the empty houses.[7]

Minor Enemies


  • The original Japanese text written on the wall in Old Kasuto reads: "マホウノ カギハ カストノ タカラ ト カイテアル" when read from top to bottom.
