    Is this actually missable? Even after going to the Dark World, you can always get back to the castle and its chests via the hole you fell down at the beginning to get to your uncle.

    The tower is inaccessible, but I'm not 100% certain you can get through the tower without getting the keys in those chests. Someone I trust who is more knowledgeable said it was missable, so I marked it as such.

    For anyone having trouble finding the last chests, they are accessible from the graveyard to the right of sanctuary. The grave on the top left leads to the sewers when pushed.

    This doesn't appear to be missable. The only chests which get locked off are 2 mandatory key chests in the tower. Source: https://github.com/RetroAchievements/guides/wiki/The-Legend-of-Zelda,-A-Link-to-the-Past-(SNES)

    THAT SAID, I am stuck at 9/10 chests and I have double checked with that guide that I have all 10, so I don't know where the 10th chest is. One of them being in sanctuary with Zelda seems weird.

    Okay, it turns out it wasn't bugged - the chest in the underground passage where you get the fighter sword from your uncle counts towards this.

    This seems to be missable because it's impossible to return to the Hyrule Castle dungeon where you rescued Zelda from the jail at the beginning of the game. So if you didn't pîck up the map or boomerang in there, you're screwed.

    Using the graveyard entrance into the sewers, the door that leads back to the castle is firmly shut.

    This also means that the all compasses/maps achievement is missable.
