Visit a Japanese bookstore or browse through a weekly magazine, and you’ll find tons of endlessly fascinating information about Japan’s criminal underworld.  I’ve always thought it was a pity that there wasn’t more information about the latest gangster news, and so I was glad to come across the Japan Subculture Research Center blog last week.
Recent posts include “Hard Times for a Nine-fingered Man,” “Tokyo Set for a Turf War as Recession-hit Yakuza Gangsters Fight it Out,” “Human Trafficking in Japan.”
