Yakuza - The Japanese Mafia | Chivalrious Organizations (騎士道組織)
Yakuza, also known as gokudō, are members of transnational organized crime syndicates originating in Japan. The Japanese police and media by request of the police, calls them bōryokudan (暴力団, "violent groups"), while the yakuza call themselves ninkyō dantai (任侠団体/仁侠団体, "chivalrous organizations").

The nature and operations of Japanese gangsters conform to the concept of organized crime. However, their specific organizational structure and subculture is definitively Japanese. Revision of laws regarding drug trafficking, illegal gambling, prostitution, and extortion as well as increased police campaigns has led to increased imprisonment of the Japanese gangsters. Their population has increased from 21 percent in 1975 to 30 percent in 1986. The approach of the Corrections Bureau toward inmate management relies on basic Japanese values and encourages offenders to abandon criminality. In contrast to this philosophy, the Yakuza are committed to a criminal subculture, demonstrate loyalty to their gangs, and exhibit a criminal orientation. For this reason, Yakuza inmates are assigned to security prison where they are managed through Japanese-style control methods that promote internal orderliness.
Yakuza groups are not illegal in Japan, and they frequently operate front companies out of smart offices. Analysts say the gangs are involved in every area of criminal activity in the country, from drug-running and prostitution to stock-market manipulation. Japanese Yakuza groups are organized so that all power is concentrated on the Oyabun or boss.
Asian Mafia groups are increasingly becoming involved in legal businesses in order to conceal profits from illegal activities. Asian criminality is difficult to investigate, particularly because Chinese and Japanese communities are very closed. The importance of Hong Kong in Asian Mafia operations and the need for international cooperation in organized crime prevention are discussed.

The Yakuza are chivalrious gangsters with a strict code of honor and to this day follow part of the code of the samurai, the bushido. They are a secretive society. Status, reputation and family means everything to them. How they are perceived is important to them, thus, the Yakuza opt to do good things for their community. This gives them a good name, and to outsiders, they are nothing more than honest businessmen.

San Fierro, San Andreas | Japanese-American assertion over Chinatown - Little Japan

People from Japan began immigrating to the U.S. in significant numbers following the political, cultural, and social changes stemming from the 1868 Meiji Restoration. Large-scale Japanese immigration started with immigration to Hawaii during the first year of the Meiji period in 1868.
Little Japan - the area was a magnet for immigrating Japanese until the Exclusion Act of 1924 halted any further migration. In 1941, there were approximately 30,000 Japanese Americans living in the Japanese-American oriented neighborhood, proclaimed as 'Little Japan'.

Japanese American assertion over Chinatown, now named Little Japanese by the Japanese has led to racial wars between the Japanese and the Chinese in the 90s. Japanese American bōsōzokus made their way into Little Japan. Bōsōzoku is a Japanese youth subculture associated with customized motorcycles. The first appearance of these types of biker gangs was in the 1950s. Popularity climbed throughout the 1980s and 1990s, peaking at an estimated 42,510 members in 1982. Japanese American youth were no different - they admired these bōsōzokus, which led the way to the violence between the Chinese and Japanese. In the end, the violence of bōsōzokus led them to a significant victory. Chinese-Americans, having nowhere to go, still live in Little Japan but are heavily subjugated by the Japanese-Americans.
Bōsōzokus lead the way for a young to-be Yakuza member to show his loyalty and be recruited into the kai (Yakuza groups). However, the secret society of the Yakuza makes it so these bōsōzoku youth have no idea of their existence. The kai looks for the members, not the other way around. These are usually misfits of society, those with a bushido-like mindset and that are ready to be welcomed into a new family.

The youth of the community of Little Japan is the game-changer for the community. They're the face of the community and they fully represent Little Japan.


This faction aims to portray a Japanese community, where not everybody is involved with crime. We are basing it off a Yakuza cell in the US, but are keeping the fact of its existence a complete secret from those not involved.

There will be a lot of mixed content between legal and illegal roleplay on this thread, and we don't at all expect people to take this up as recruitment is going to be very scarce for the actual Yakuza crew. Roleplaying with us however, is not. Everyone is free to do so, you can portray whatever you want as long as your character is ethnically Japanese.

With that being said, by joining you oblige to follow server rules. Trolls and rulebreakers will be faction banned.
