    Yakuza 『龍が如く』Locations Tour Episode 16 is live!

    In this episode, Noah visits the Shinjuku Batting Center (オスローバッティングセンター) located in the Hotel District of Kabukicho, Tokyo.

    The "Yoshida Batting Center" (バッティングセンター) as it is called in the Yakuza『龍が如く』 series, is also located in the Hotel District of Kamurocho. It serves as another pivotal location in the series. This is where Kazuma Kiryu confronts everyone's favorite character, Goro Majima (真島 吾朗) after Haruka has been taken hostage in the the original Yakuza and the remake, Yakuza Kiwami (龍が如く:極).

    In Yakuza 4, it is revealed that the Yoshida Batting Center was once the childhood playground for both Majima and protagonist, Taiga Saejima (冴島 大河).

    You will also see the new and improved Batting Cage mini game featured in Yakuza 6. The mechanics share some nuances featured in Tatsuo Shinada's baseball mini game in Yakuza 5.

    There are also brand new ways to explore Kamurocho as you will see towards the end of the episode...

    Yakuza 龍が如く Locations Tour Episode 17 is LIVE!

    In this episode, Noah visits Matsuya (松屋): a Japanese major restaurant chain serving an assortment of Japanese food : ramen, guidon, donburi, curry as well as Korean and Western cuisine. All affordable and delicious.

    Since Yakuza 2, Matsuya has been a long-time sponsor of the main Yakuza (龍が如く) series. During the promotional campaign for Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5, Matsuya served character-inspired meals as well as tie-ins within the game itself. Since Yakuza 0 however, the Matsuya restaurants have been replaced with the Akaushimaru Beef Bowl Restaurant (赤牛丸).

    Yakuza 『龍が如く』Locations Tour 2016 - Episode 18 is live!

    In this episode, Noah visits a shrine in Kabukicho, Tokyo that resembles the CP shrine (CP 神社) as seen in Yakuza 0 (龍が如く0 誓いの場所).

    CP (Completion Points) was introduced in Yakuza 0 as a means to reward the player for fulfilling certain criteria within the game. When the player earns CP as Kiryu and Majima, players can visit shrines to earn various bonuses enhancing the game experience even further.

    Since Yakuza 2, players can also interact with Bob Utsunomiya who will reward players with bonus free DLC items as well as other rewards the player has achieved during a playthrough.

    What’s interesting is the fact that the shrine in Kabukicho, Tokyo has two graffiti on the wall: a tiger and a dragon. Now, where have we seen this before?

    Yakuza『龍が如く』Locations Tour 2016 - Episode 19 is live!

    In this episode, Noah visits the APA Hotel(APAホテルズ) in Kabukicho, Tokyo located in Theater Square.

    Since Yakuza 3 (龍が如く 3), APA Hotel has provided promotional product placements within the city of Kamurocho. Their logos can be seen on the walls of buildings and even underground malls. APA stands for : Always Pleasant Amenity

    For the first time, Yakuza 6 (龍が如く6 命の詩。) allows players to go inside the APA Hotel and dine in at a new restaurant called, QUADRA GARDEN. The APA Hotel in Yakuza 6 isn’t just a product placement as one of the later chapters in the game will reunite Kiryu with a series fan-favorite.

    Yakuza『龍が如く』Locations Tour 2016 - Episode 20 is live!

    In this episode, Noah compares Kabukicho’s Sakura Dori Street (さくら通り 歌舞伎町) with Kamurocho’s Pink Street (ピンク通り) in the Yakuza (龍が如く) games. Pink Street offers a wealth of hostess clubs. The hostess clubs in the Yakuza series are one of its most unique features. This episode will also show a glimpse of the new and vastly improved Hostess Clubs (キャバクラ ) mini-game featured in Yakuza 6 (龍が如く6 命の詩。).

    Conversations with hostesses in Yakuza 6 (龍が如く6 命の詩。), are now more thrilling than ever before. The experience is even deeper and more realistic than its predecessors. As first-person perspective is used during conversations, it almost feels like you are right there talking yourself.

    Introducing a brand-new card system, players can choose a variety of topic cards to keep the conversations going. Players can choose “Talk”, “Drink”, “Food” cards to increase the level of “Interest” of the hostess. As a frequent visitor to the club, you will eventually build intimate relationships, take them out for a game of darts and even dine in at one of the many restaurants Kamurocho has to offer.

    In this episode, Noah visits Nadai Fujisoba (名代 富士そば) in Asakusa (浅草): a Japanese major restaurant chain serving an assortment of traditional Japanese food.

    In November 2016, Sega announced a special collaboration and tie-in with Yakuza 6 (龍が如く6 命の詩。) and Nadai Fujisoba (名代 富士そば). Visitors can order a bowl of ‘Red’ Fujisoba 「赤富士そば」for just 500. It was cheap and delicious!

    Yakuza『龍が如く』Locations Tour 2016 - Episode 22 is live!

    In this episode, Noah visits a ’24 Hour Love Hotel’ (王城ビル)in Kabukicho, Tokyo that resembles the Kamuro Castle/HLA Headquarters (神室キャッスル) seen in Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, Yakuza Dead Souls, Yakuza 5, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6.

    In Yakuza 3, Kiryu encounters a man named Ibuki who is a representative of the Honest Living Association - HLA: an organization that helps former yakuza members get out of the ‘business’ and start making a living by honest means. It is later revealed that Osamu Kashiwagi (柏木修), Kiryu’s mentor and ally, founded the HLA.

    Players will embark on a series of optional Hitman (ヒットマン) missions where Kiryu will stop hitmen from causing trouble in the streets of Kamurocho.
