Usually, the protagonist is only able to visit the Shrine during the day. However, the location can become accessible during the evening if their Courage stat is at least Rank 2 (Reliable).
Persona 5[edit | edit source]
Visiting the Meiji Shrine is a time-consuming activity, which can only be visited during the day. Doing so will grant the protagonist the ability to increase the rank points with their Confidants. By default, the points notes received will be 1, but they are also influenced by relevant multipliers, such as whether the protagonist has brought a Persona with the same Arcana as the Confidant, or if he scored high on exams.
While praying, the protagonist needs to choose how much they want to pay in offerings: they can either pay none, pay ¥5, or ¥1,000, then choose which Confidant's rank they wish to boost. Depending on the three choices, it will be more likely that he'll receive an additional note (1% for nothing, 5% for ¥5, 20% for ¥1,000).
The Meiji Shrine is also a hangout spot, which the protagonist can visit with one of their Confidants. For more information, see Meiji Shrine.
