Persona 5 - Star Confidant - Hifumi Togo, Overview and Guide

Hifumi Togou attends Kosei High School just like Yusuke Kitagawa. She holds the title of champion in the Female Shogi League. Because of her appearance, people normally dub her as the “too beautiful shogi player.”

Hifumi’s Confidant relationship can begin as soon as the player has finished Kaneshiro Palace. When you finish the palace, first gather information about a female Shogi player, then go to Kanda Church and talk to her. The protagonist’s Charm will need to be at least level 3 to start the Social Link.

You’re supposed to meet her at night, right? I’ve only met her once and she hasn’t come back to the church since


For 7, both +3 choices according to this only gave +2 (it may come down to luck / I believe in you). I don’t have a corresponding persona but I didnt think thats how this was rated?


You must have a corresponding persona to get the higher amount.


For 6 ‘Do you still like shogi’ only gave +1 btw!


And ‘media is scary’ gave 0 just for reference if peeps were wondering


okay so i have all stats maxed but i cant talk to hifumi. its keeps saying “a high school girl is playing shoji here”


Can confirm:
Rank 5 KNOWLEDGE is needed for Rank 8.


Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all of us you actually know what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly also visit my website =). We could have a link exchange agreement between us!


Should also note that you need Rank 1 with Yusuke before the Church is unlocked


Trying to get Rank 8 and it tell you to have rank 5 Knowledge (Erudite) not Charm


Pretty sure it’s supposed to be Kaneshiro’s palace not Komoshida’s.

Alright, we have changed the name as well as the link. Thank you for the correction!
