Yakuza News

I came across this article on okonomibloggy@wordpress.com.  Kitakyushu trying to get rid of Yakuza.  This article speaks to the Yakuza’s place in Japan.  The Yakuza do not operate in the shadows like the their American Cosa Nostra peers.   Japan as a society appears to be making a concerted effort to take them on.   My question at this point is after the earthquake and Tsunami if things have changed?  After the Kobe earthquake the Yakuza provided some support for the victims.   It is clear the Yakuza has been successful marketers and bribers of Japanese Society.
