Want to join the Yakuza? Well now’s your chance.
Faced with diminishing membership numbers, the Yamaguchi-gumi, better known as Japan’s largest and most feared criminal organisation, have been on a major recruitment drive of late.
And now they have a website. Featuring a theme tune and tribute video, it introduces us to the humanitarian side of the crime syndicate without any mention of the mob protection, loan sharking and white collar crime in which they enterprise.
