Can we have a thread dedicated to yakuza? I want to see some cool pictures.
But that's a Bosozoku (out-of-control tribe) member. In their height, Bosozoku weren't actually part of the Yakuza, but exceptional members were allowed membership into low ranks after turning 20.
These were very popular before the 2000's since back then, there weren't a lot of laws in place to arrest these unruly bike modifiers. They caused a lot of mischevious trouble like speeding, driving without a helmet, running red lights, and more aggressive things like starting fights with each other and terrorizing people with wooden swords and baseball bats. They were also known to gather in the hundreds and slowly drive through suburban areas, blocking traffic and making tons of noise.
They were also known to hate gaijin, so I hope you weren't actually referring to seeing cool pictures of gaijin being terrorized by bosozoku members.
>tfw you want to be a Bosozoku, but don't have enough money for a motorbike
Yakuza is closely allied to mafia.
In Japan images of "tattoo=yakuza=crime" run strong, and negative reactions to tattoos in society are even more distinct than in Europe and America.
Dude with the salt-and-pepper flat top looks like any standard Italian mafioso. If I saw him in my neighborhood, playing cards in front of a corner store with the guy to his left, I would see nothing remiss.
W-wanna form a Bosozoku, /jp/? We can drive cool motorcycles and terrorize people with wooden swords!
What will be our cool gimmick that will be the envy of all the other gangs and will pick the interest of the Yakuza?
The leader of Yamaguchi-gumi which the largest yakuza organization in Japan.
All the yakuza organizations are bleeding members in a quicker rate each year, is it something to do with the herbivore men there?
i mean losing 5-8k members per year seems a huge loss
Do you want such a pic? though it is not yakuza but school gang..
