Yakuza Takes Me To The Hostess Club In Japan (#137)

The Yakuza: one of the most well-known criminal groups in the world. Unlike other mafias and gangs, the Yakuza were known for doing their business with honor – no matter how illicit those business activities might be.

I had the opportunity to meet an ex-Yakuza boss in Fukuoka, and I knew I couldn’t pass this up. Yuyama-san was a Yakuza for 15 years, and although he had left the life a decade ago, he had plenty of information to share. He was also going to take me to one of Japan’s strangest cultural staples: the hostess club. There would be much to learn on this evening.
