Let’s talk about Japan’s labor shortage, declining companies, and low wages.. we’ll start about pointing out a weird similarity to the decline of the #yakuza
This article explains why the Hangure (gangs) are not going to replace the once powerful yakuza…
The gangs (半グレ) are big news in Japan because they orchestrate fraud, violent robberies, sensational crimes. But none of them last long.
They often pay tribute to the yakuza but are not a networked structure
The lower ranking members are temporary staffers
No benefits
As Mizoguchi, the yakuza expert points out, the gangs don’t have quasi-family ties, no rituals, no protections for the lowest ranking members. The top take the money, recruit fringe of society, exploit them, expose them to risk, abandon them when they’re arrested. Sorta works

The Lifeline of Kamurocho and loan shark, Shun Akiyama, has arrived in #SEGAHeroes as an Epic Red Character. Check out the lore and trivia on one of #Yakuza's finest cast! (1/9) ImageImage
Debuting in Yakuza 4, Akiyama became CEO of his own loan company and hostess club, Sky Finance and Elise. Shun Akiyama earned a reputation as "The Lifeline of Kamurocho" by taking on customers who would be turned away by regular loan companies. (2/9) ImageImageImage
But instead of examining their finances, Akiyama puts his customers through a series of unique tests in an effort to test their resolve more than their pocketbooks. Perhaps due to his colorful past, he keeps his appearance unassuming. (3/9) ImageImageImageImage

Debuting in Yakuza on PS2, Kazuma Kiryu was a former member of the Tojo Clan, a criminal organization based in Kamurocho, Tokyo. He has a tattoo of a dragon on his back and has been called the "Dragon of Dojima". (2/11)
Although nominally he's a "tough guy", his strong sense of duty leads some to judge him as an easy mark. Still, his rugged masculinity and fighting strength have also won him many fans, and he is one of the most charismatic residents of Kamurocho. (3/11)
