    Japan, the birthplace of Hello Kitty, Super Mario, Sushi… and fetishes of a physical nature that seem wholly Japanese. It’s a country renowned for walking to the beat of its own drum, a cultural oddity in some respects, but with a society that goes to great pains in being polite, civilized, clean, and deferent to customs. Walking around almost any city, you won’t find trash on the ground, and you won’t need to fear being harassed or beaten up for the way you look, or for the few dollars in your pocket. Japan is on the whole smart, convenient, and safe. But then it also has some of the most feared and formidable gangsters on the planet. Who are they? What do they do? That’s what we’ll find out, in this episode of the Infographics Show, Most Dangerous Japanese Gangs.

    again, wiki, there is an order to which fingers they cut off. its starts with the LEFT PINKY at the top knuckle, then you move to the middle knuckles and if for some reason they havent killed you or kicked your arse out of the gang then the right pinky. never the pointer finger

    You got one thing wrong with the Tattoo's. Mums are a death flower in Japan(placed at funerals and graves). Yakuza get Mums so that in the event they die alone, they still have death flowers with them.

    Well it's actually better to have Yakuza for the Japanese because although they are gangsters they have values though ..if the authorities weed them out there's no telling what will replace them

    Only a rare few criminal organizations were wise enough to recognize the value of community outreach. It's an invaluable asset, the love of a community, that has helped many aggressively hunted fugitives evade capture, some for decades despite huge bounties.(Chapo Guzman for example) Those who victimized their community rarely last.
