The Asao Kouda Kyōkai (朝雄幸田協会)

Post by Captain Marty » Wed Oct 10, 2018 3:23 pm

The yakuza, particularly the early yakuza groups, follow, to some degree, the values embodied in bushido, the code of the samurai. Like the samurai, the yakuza would prove their manliness by the stoic endurance of pain, hunger, and imprisonment, and violent death for the yakuza was an honorable fate. But at the heart of the yakuza's and Japanese society's values, which bind people together, lie the concepts of giri and ninjō.

Giri means "obligation or a strong sense of duty, and is tied up with complex Japanese values involving loyalty, gratitude, and moral debt. In a sense, giri is the social cloth that binds much of Japan together, and its observance plays a central role in the oyabun-kobun system.

Ninjō roughly means "human feeling" or "emotion". Among its many interpretations is "generosity or sympathy toward the weak and disadvantaged, and empathy toward others. By adopting giri-ninjō, the yakuza enhanced their standing in society, showing that, like the samurai, they could combine compassion and kindness with their martial skills. According to Kakuji Inagawa, former head of the Inagawa-kai, "the yakuza are trying to pursue the road of chivalry and patriotism. That's our biggest difference with the American Mafia, it's our sense of giri-ninjō. The yakuza try to take care of all society if possible, even if it takes one million yen to help a single person."

The Inagawa-kai (稲川会) is the third largest of Japan's yakuza groups, with approximately 15,000 members. It is based in the Kantō region, and was one of the first yakuza organizations to begin operating overseas. The Inagawa-kai was founded in Atami, Shizuoka in 1949 as the Inagawa-gumi (稲川組) by Kakuji Inagawa. Most of its members were drawn from the bakuto (traditional gamblers), and illegal gambling has long been the clan's main source of income. It has also expanded into such fields as drug trafficking, blackmail, extortion, and prostitution. February 2009 saw the Inagawa-kai 'Honbu' (Head Office) relocate from the Roppongi district of Tokyo to Akasaka. There is currently strong resistance from the local political groups and residents of Akasaka meaning that the location of the new Honbu may change yet again.

The Inagawa-kai quietly helped to provide relief in the wake of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami by sending supplies to affected areas. As a whole, the group shipped over 100 tons of supplies, including instant ramen, bean sprouts, paper diapers, batteries, flashlights, tea and drinking water, to the Tōhoku region.

We’re a regional assortment of The Takeuchi-kai, who reigns the most part of San Andreas branches and syndicates of The Inagawa-kai. The Shatei-gashira, or simply known as the former representative of Los Santos-Las Venturas gang, is Dan Ogasawara. Our substantial target is to portray a modern day American Yakuza who rely heavily on development and realism. Please bare in mind that we will not give you any exaggerated film-like scenarios.

Before trying to approach us it is highly recommended for you to study and do a little more research about the Yakuza subculture and what are your today's limits in America; however, for this such matter you can private message Dan_Ogasawara for further guidance. If you have questions or concerns about the faction, please forward your messages to Phil_Baba or Samuel_Haneda. Screenshots permission will be obtained from Captain Marty. We reserve the rights on your character kill once posting in our thread as a member.

OOC note; For anyone feeling the vibe and interest to participate in this small project, my private message section is open. My purpose is to turn these side of events into a reginal organization of a yakuza or a rightwing japanese crime group.
