Toranosuke Yoshida is the holder of the Sun Arcana and a Confidant in Persona 5 Royal. He is a politician who has developed a bad reputation after allegations of embezzling party funds. He is introduced on 06/05, which is also when you can begin his Confidant. However, doing so requires you to work two shifts at the Beef Bowl Shop at night. Yoshida is only available on Sunday evenings and can be found at Shibuya Station Square.
Unlike most confidants, there is a date you must have ranked Yoshida up by. If Yoshida is not at Rank 10 by 11/13, it is impossible to reach max rank with him. Due to this, players looking to complete an optimal playthrough should prioritize ranking up this social link while he is still available. As an added bonus, most of Yoshida’s ranks reward an additional +3 Charm.
