Kawakami Confidant Persona 5 Royal Hangout

Sadayo Kawakami is the holder of the Temperance Arcana and a Confidant in Persona 5 Royal. She is a hard-working teacher who relies on a surprising side job to get by. Kawakami is first introduced on 04/10 as your homeroom teacher. You can begin her Confidant after the Operation Maidwatch event shortly after clearing Madarame’s Palace. She is only available on Friday and Saturday evenings and can be summoned using the payphone in LeBlanc for ¥5,000.

As with most confidants, there isn’t a limit on when you can rank Kawakami up. As long as you reach Rank 10 before reaching an ending you can complete the Temperance Confidant. Also, at Rank 9 you have the option to romance Kawakami which changes the dialogue options for the following rank.
