Persona 5 Royal - Sadayo Kawakami, the Temperance, Confidant Abilities and Guide
Sadayo Kawakami is the Protagonist‘s homeroom teacher. At first, she appears to be cold. She did this because of the alleged problem of student status the Protagonist has. However, after he stands up to Kamoshida, she becomes noticeably nicer. She begins to look after the protagonist and helps when he goes through palaces.

  1. Hopefully you figured it out by now, but I was just in this boat a couple of weeks ago. Kawakami can be found later in the hallway, out of sight from the class, on the same floor on future days. Morgana would sometimes ask if I was going to help her, but I didn’t know where to go to find her and no one put it plainly like this. I found her on a day he asked in September, so I’m not sure if she’s there other days.

  2. I’m playing Persona 5 Royal. Is now June 1 and Second villain is about to confess and only now the event with Ryuji and Mishima that unlock the event started. Is posible that you need to have explored the second palace with Yusuke or already have deafeated second palace’s boss in order to start the event.
    I haven’t done any Mishima’s mision (though i recibed the cat mementos mision the previous day) so unless the unlock date is different in royal then her unlocking should be related to second palace. I also had Yusuke unlocked as playable character for a while.
    Also it is Ryuji who found the filler, Mishima just decided to “join”

    • The maid event is always set to happen two days after you complete Madarame’s Palace. (As in securing the route and beating the boss.) When this happens is up to when you decided to do it. Having Yusuke is required for beating the Palace but other than that the Palace being gone is the only prerequisite to the event showing up.

  3. This has a number of errors, as others have mentioned.

    I noticed two:

    Rank 1, the correct P5R response is #1: Yeah, I know.
    Also, you need rank 3 guts to request her, not rank 2

  4. At least some of this is wrong because picking “Please stop talking like that” in Kawakamis first Link gave me +1 whereas the guide says all answers are +0.

  5. Accidentally skipped over the call cut scene and the followup where you talk to the teacher afterwards, is it possible for me to talk to her at another date and unlock her confidant tree?

  6. First: you need to be in school to get her mementos request. Otherwise they’ll be stuck until school starts.
    Second: In Royal, when you housekeeping perk unlocked, you get bonding points for requesting her.

  7. If you’re romantically involved with her before you go to Hawaii, you can spend one day with her and she will give you a +5 ma/+5lu ring.

  8. i’m rank 9 and the confidant won’t go up to rank 10.
    the outline of her name in the fast travel map is greyed out and she keeps sayin she’s on break if I call her on the yellow phone.
    what is going on?

  9. Ugh! If you want the Romantic Option SUCCESSFULLY, you have to choose “I’m a man, you’re a woman”, choosing the other will just cause her to go home.
