Hm... According to my YouTube analytics, the Location Tour videos have received more 'dislikes' than 'likes'. Not that it matters. Just thought it was interesting.

That's strange, I didn't expect that at all. Keep up with the solid videos. Akiyama Pointing

One of the things that made the Yakuza (Ryu ga Gotoku) games great were the product placements. Although product placements are considered blatant when it comes to movies, I always thought they were cool in games.

Without them, I would have never been able to discover places like:


Karaoke-kan (the karaoke place in the Yakuza games)


Shinjuku Batting Center (Batting cages in the Yakuza main games)


Nadai Fujisoba (featured in Yakuza 6)


Nadai Fujisoba Kiwami 2


Daikoku Drugstore (featured in Yakuza 5 and Yakuza 0)


PIZZA-LA (Kiryu has his own pizza delivery substory in Yakuza 0)


Gindaco Takoyaki (Yakuza 6)


APA Hotel (Yakuza 6)


Pronto Bar (featured in Yakuza 3 onwards)

Oops forgot about Matsuya!



What's interesting about Matsuya was it's marketing campaign during the Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5 promotional period. There was a Yakuza 4 Kiryu-inspired curry base that you can purchase at the store as well as a Yakuza 5 Haruka inspired curry. It was probably a nod to Yakuza 3 since Kiryu would always cook curry for the Morning Glory orphanage. Since Yakuza 0, Matsuya has been absent in Kamurocho (presumably due to licensing expiration).

Now that KIWAMI 2 is released in the West, you can compare and contrast Kamurocho featured in Kiwami 2 and real-life Kabukicho in the 2017 Location Tours series!

Here's the Japanese pre-launch event I attended in December 2017:

What's odd is the fact that the Godzilla Hotel (Shijuku Gracery) which opened in 2014-2015 and it's the real-life Millennium Tower. In 2012, the area was under construction and it was once part of TOHO CINEMAS/Theater.
