The Minish Woods is a highly-inhabited region in The Minish Cap. Its name is notable because it appears to be the only place in which Hyruleans still use the word "Minish" rather than "Picori" to refer to the diminutive creatures. Expectedly, to traverse the entire length of these woods, one must shrink and resize themselves several times via the Minish Portal found in strategic areas about the forest pathway. A large number of Forest Minish live here in the Minish Village, just north of which lies the Deepwood Shrine, as many also live in various private mushrooms and ground cracks about the woods. Notable Minish include Festari, who speaks human language, and the Minish elder Gentari. Just outside of the village is Belari's house, where he will sell bombs, and later switch them out for free for Remote Bombs, to Link.
A few non-Minish can be found here too. Syrup the Witch has her potion shop here, and Mayor Hagen's Lakeside Cabin can be accessed from here as well, but only using the Mole Mitts. The Great Butterfly Fairy who provides Link with a larger Wallet can also be found here. Enemies in the Minish Woods include Octoroks and Chuchus.
This is where Link finds Ezlo, where he first learns how to shrink to Minish-size, and where he finds the Jabber Nut which allows him to speak and understand the Minish language. The Deepwood Shrine is Link's first dungeon, where he finds the Earth Element. Its boss is the Big Green Chuchu, which is actually a regular Chuchu that Link must fight while Minish-sized.
Saria's song was going to be used in an early version of The Minish Cap, but that was scrapped for the Minish Woods music.
