Persona 5: Yoshida (Sun) confidant choices & unlock guide

The relationships you forge in Persona have always defined the protagonist, and Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal continue that tradition with a strong cast of characters you'll want to get to know. One such charadcter is Toranosuke Yoshida, who represents the Sun arcana. 

Getting to know characters also has some large in-game benefits, too - forging relationships boosts your RPG abilities through the confidant and cooperation system - the new name for what were previously known as Social Links/S-Links. Getting to know the right people quickly can really give you an edge - and we're here to help you navigate the relationships by saying and doing the right things. 

If you need an assist with other character relationships in P5, be sure to take a look at our complete Confidant guide with every character, choice and unlock listed out neatly. 



Toranosuke Yoshida Confidant Cooperation Relationship Guide - Sun (Le Soleil - XIX)

As with the other confidants, every conversation you have with Toranosuke Yoshida has a chance to add some bonus points to the hidden stats that track your relationship - and if you answer in the right way while carrying a Persona of the same arcana (Sun), you'll get bonus points that ensure you level up your confidant cooperation more quickly, thus unlocking bonuses and giving you more time to pursue other things.

  • Politician Yoshida can be found hanging out in Shibyua Station Square at night.
  • As a warning, plot reasons mean this confidant ceases to be available after November 13, so you'll need to rush to max it out.
