He’s already up to Episode 3 with plans to do both seasons! The series is great and one of my personal favourite JDramas (even if it wasn’t Yakuza related it’s great!)
If you haven’t watched it yet then it’s time to check it out. Show him some love so he knows how much we appreciate it!
The strip club, operating in the heart of Shinjuku’s famed Kabukichou sex district, was known as “Kabukichou T.S. Music” and opened in 1985, boasting the distinction of employing actual AV performers for its shows.
Despite having been in business for over 25 years, police suddenly identified it as “especially pernicious” due to its strippers actually stripping to the point of exposing their genitals, and the fact it loaned out cameras to patrons so they could better document this phenomenon.
It also boasted annual sales of 200 million yen and “was popular with Chinese tour groups,” perhaps in part due to some of its strippers having appeared in “over 100″ adult videos.
Police raided the premises and arrested the 41-year-old manager along with 10 strippers aged 24 to 39. The charges relate to indecent performances in which the women would expose their genitals to patrons, otherwise known as strip shows.
For once they did not opt to arrest patrons, as they have been known to in recent months.
Police were reportedly acting in response to anonymous claims that “their shows are amongst the nation’s most extreme, and if Tokyo hosts the Olympics it will shame Japan.”
As usual with such seemingly random crackdowns, business at the capital’s thousands of other brothels and officially sanctioned red light districts appears to be unaffected.
The disturbingly selective enforcement of the law which Japan’s police are known for – to say nothing of them picking on “harmless” strip clubs or the general lack of enthusiasm with which most Tokyo residents have greeted their city’s Olympic bid .
I think we just found the plot of the next Yakuza game. I swear that building is in game!

I see you covered all your bases. ;-)
From the February 2010 episode of Qore on PSN. Buyers of this episode also get a free Yakuza 3 theme.
Twitter user MacIver817 had a layover in Japan and decided to see what foods he could get in Narita airport that are in the Yakuza series!
These kind of real world product tie ins really make these games feel special. Thanks for the pics!
