Persona 5: Kawakami Confidant – How to Max Out the Teacher

Sadayo Kawakami is the homeroom teacher who goes from hating the protagonist to potentially having a romantic relationship (if you play your cards right).

Yes, just like Persona 5 Kawakami Confidant, you can romance her in Persona 5 Royal too. But more on this later.

Kawakami Persona 5 Royal Confidant is one of the most prestigious Confidants. A single Ranking Event will cost you 5000 yen. Plus, you have until November 17 to max out Kawakami Confidant.

After that, she’s unavailable until January. One glance at her perks, you’ll know exactly why you can’t wait that long.

Let’s start the guide so you can begin the Confidant.

Kawakami Confidant – Unlocking & Availability

Before you can begin Kawakami Confidant, you have to take care of a couple of things.

  1. Clear Madarame’s Palace.
  2. Get Rank 3 Guts.
  3. Complete Operation Maidwatch with Mishima and Ryuji. This “operation” becomes available on May 24, and you can play it any day after that.

Once you take care of these 3 things, you’ll meet Kawakami on the 2nd floor of Shujin Academy the day after completing Operation Maidwatch.

She’ll be standing by the Staff Room. There, she’ll share her phone number with you. Use the yellow phone back at Cafe LeBlanc to call her and begin her Confidant. Just make sure you have Rank 3 Guts though.

Kawakami is only available at night on Friday and Saturday. But if it’s raining, she’ll be available during the daytime as well. Also, look out for texts from Kawakami on Tuesday and Wednesday.
