Welcome To The World Of Yakuza: Joining The Japanese Mafia
Meet the Japanese Mafia’s latest son: a 20 year old named Naoki, part of a decade-long wave of juvenile delinquency in Japan.
20 year old Naoki is caught up in the ever increasing new problem of juvenile delinquency in Japan. His record is dismal. A failure at school, work and in his personal life, Naoki has decided to turn to a life of petty crime.
Naoki’s mother, Mrs Watanabe, is driven to despair and shame by his lifestyle. One day she meets up with an old school friend, Mr Imai. During her conversation with him, she reveals with great sadness, that, as much as she has tried everything to make her son become a productive member of Japanese society, he has now started to stray. She asks Mr Imai’s advice – can he think of a way out for her son?
Mr Imai suggests that she place her son, for a while, in a “yakuza”, a Japanese styled Mafia family – long enough for him to decide if he wants to stay within the “yakuza” or go back to his mother…
