Wasn't Zora's domain not linked directly to Hyrule field though, wasn't it linked to a river which then led you to Zora's domain?
And I would have preferred it if you told me I was misremembering, but in the end, I am used to games like this and I have completed games like Resident Evil at a very young age, yet multiple times I was confused at where I needed to go next in Ocarina of Time.
What about the part of the game where you grow up and go onto Hyrule Field, I believe after you meet Sheikh no hints are dropped as to where you go next.
I will phrase it that way in the future, then.
Zora's Domain was at the source of Zora's River, whichh is mentioned a few times by NPCs. The owl meets you at the entrance to Zora's River and explains it again.
This part is fuzzier to me - Navi suggests you talk to Saria, Saria says shit has gotten bad at the Meadow where she hangs out. Go meet her and Sheik will teach you a song and direct you to Kakariko Village - particularly to meet Dampe, the gravekeeper. Sheik might direct you to go there when you talk to him at the Temple of Time, but I forget.
