Hifumi Togou Confidant Guide
Hifumi Togou attends Kosei High School just like Yusuke Kitagawa. As of now, she holds the title as champion in the Female Shogi League. Because of her appearance, people normally dub her as the “too beautiful shogi player.” For Persona 5, she is a non-playable character and the Star Confidant.

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 given that the protagonist’s charm is at least level 3.
Mastering the Star confidant gives you a variety of options to use in battle. Noticeably, the abilities gained from the Star Arcana allow you to retreat faster than normal.
