In Persona 5 Royal, Chihaya Mifune’s confidant is associated with Fortune Arcana. Building a solid relationship with her can unlock new abilities and benefits to aid your journey. As you move through Chihaya’s Confidant levels, you can unlock potent abilities, such as receiving accurate fortune readings.

You can increase the EXP earned by party members and see the hidden objects and clues in the environment. Additionally, pursuing Chihaya’s Confidant can deepen the game’s narrative and provide unique insights into the world of Persona 5.

With these perquisites and more, the Chihaya Mifune Confidant is an essential relationship to cultivate for maximizing your P5R gameplay experience.

Our guide covers the information about which are the best dialogue choices for the Chihaya Confidant, her availability, and her favorite gifts in Persona 5 Royal.

How to unlock Chihaya’s Confidant in Persona 5

You can initiate your meetings with Chihaya Mifune after June 22. After visiting and returning from her booth for the first time, you will return to her place and buy the Holy Stone for 100,000 Yen. After that, you will discover that she sold you the fake stone.

When you visit her the third time, the “Ending the Boyfriend’s Abuse” request will start from there. Complete the request, and you can start the Chihaya Confidant afterward.

The Deadline to complete Chihaya’s Confidant is December 24 for P5, and February 2 for P5 Royal, so keep the time constraint in mind during your playthrough.

Where to find Chihaya and her availability

Chihaya is available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Shinjuku Fortune-Telling Booth (near the arcade entrance). You must meet her at night, as at other times, she will either not be available at her place or you will not be able to progress her confidant.

It is worth noting that Chihaya’s booth is closed on rainy days in Persona 5 Royal, so you cannot meet her on these days.
