From Akkala Tower, glide down to the northwest to spot the shrine a short distance away from South Akkala Stable.

Interact with the terminal inside and use the gyroscope to tilt the platform to make a path across.

To get the chest at the end of this room, you have to get on top of the block that rotates around the platform here. Activate the crystal from this side of the room when the block at its lowest and drop on to the top as it rises. Stay on the top until it reaches its highest position and glide down to the platform where the chest is sitting.
