    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.

    Can gangs have a positive effect on the society? Is ethical criminal really possible or is it just an excuse? What do you think?

      mafias by nature are too short sighted and governments today are starting to become that way as well. They focus to much on sustaining things as they are in the moment the future and creation of future profit markets just happen according to them. Even though Japans bloom of its artistic market and technology are a partial result of infrastructure investment.

    What can I say most other gangsters is only about boosting their ego. These guys see it as a business and actually discipline their own people. When you're nearly as powerful as the government that's really saying something.

    Well, if the narrator had ever been to Japan he’d see that while indeed people kind of ignore the Yakuza, this is far from them being “welcome members of society.” They are definitely seen as a problem to the point where people with tattoos visible are look at suspiciously and not allowed in pools and such. I love Japan but this video is misleading.

    Japan is actually not that safe. It's not entirely because of the Yakuzas but because of the public harassment. Women or girl students usually gets groped while riding the train. But I'm not saying this country is filled with negativy, I'm just saying that all countries have their own weirdness and mistakes.

    The only reason why I dislike this video is because the Yakuza can be violent. Also I just heard from you Infographics show that they help people truly in need? I'm still shaking my head about that one. It's nothing personal why I dislike this video, it's just how can the richest gang groups could help people but be gruesomely violent at the same time? I don't get it at all.

    I think the smartest code they had was not bothering and helping neighbors. So many dumb wanna be thugs and gangsters try to dominate and intimidate everyone around them even their next door neighbors and strangers that just want peace. They have yjid stupid "keeping it real" and alpha tough guy mentality that leaves them with very few people who can say anything good about them when they do cross the paths with the law.
    When I visited japan I got invited to a party that may or may not have been hosted by a Yakuza boss. Even with many tattoos and stubby fingers around me, I didn't feel uncomfortable at any point and constantly had to check myself for being more relaxed than I should have been at times. I'm not a fan of senseless violence because "it's cool" so I really respected the atmosphere I experienced. I think most people around the world feel that way which is why Japan tolerates Yakuza to a certain extent.

    A lot of the early days of the yakuza were all low class of citizens looked at as less than human and ether bdcame gangsters or ninjas aka assassins.these class of people were considered less than human and born into a certain societal class.if you are gonna kill someone doing it threw assassination was very dishonerable but these as low as it gets class of people in japan were less than human and had no honor to gsin or loose and hard to make a living so became gangsters and or ninjas to make a living.they were not at all samurai or at least the typical average yakuza back in the day.

Or the fact that their tattoos are sponsored and when the person with those sweet tats dies, the sponsor has rights to their tattooed skin and they frame them and sell them as works of art in the black market?
    Sooooooo what about that?
