Yakuza Super-fan takes trip of a lifetime (SEGA Week Special)

Last month, self-proclaimed Yakuza addict Mina Majima embarked on the trip of a lifetime, vacationing in Japan and visiting several locales featured in SEGA’s Yakuza video game series. Fortunately, Mina did not come across any “goons”. Perhaps they’ve already been dispatched?

Kind of makes you want to dash over that Sotenbori bridge screaming “Ora, ORA!”, right?


While seeing these striking side-by-side images not only makes me jealous, it also stands as a testament to the Yakuza development team’s ability to faithfully recreate these real-life locations and convey a convincing sense of place for the player.

Hopefully you yourself are in a place to watch Mina’s video above, or if you prefer, we’ve also put together an old-fashioned vacation slideshow below. You can follow Mina’s future adventures in Yakuza fandom here.
