An underground society has emerged among Tokyo's homeless living beneath the shadows of the capital's skyscrapers and in its parks, according to Shukan Jitsuwa.[tags=Yakuza]
"Just recently, there's been a rapid increase in the number of former yakuza gangsters who've become homeless," a writer familiar with the scenario tells Shukan Jitsuwa. "And they're really aggressive, flashing their tattoos, scaring passers-by and lording over other homeless as they do whatever they like."
"Nearly all of the homeless yakuza are guys who've just got out of prison to discover that the gang they had belonged to before doing time had broken up while they were behind bars," the writer says. "Without their gangs, the yakuza can't get by."
"A yakuza I've known for some time rolled up to my store recently and said, 'Hey, I've got some pictures of couples going at it in the park. Buy 'em off me,'" an underground video producer says.
"I suppose (the yakuza's photographic ability) comes from being fearless. He took these amazing shots and he didn't even have a telephoto lens," the producer tells Shukan Jitsuwa. "You can see the guy's face, filled with surprise caused by the camera flash going off, as well as the girl who had been with him."
