In Chapter 12 of the game, Ichiban and his crew make their way through the Tojo clan’s headquarters, eventually meeting back with Masumi Arakawa. Arakawa is with Daigo Dojima, the sixth and current chairman of the Tojo clan. Here it is revealed that Governor Ryo Aoki (who is also Masato Arakawa, son of Masumi) was able to drive crime, and Yakuza out of Kamurocho using information from Arakawa – with Daigo’s permission. Basically, everyone is behind with everyone.
It is revealed that because anti-Yakuza love in Japan has become so open to interpretation that most Yakuza could be forced to do what government officials demanded. Daigo says they, along with the Omi Alliance, would dissolve both Yakuza organizations to prevent the Yakuza lifestyle from being twisted by the government. The message is sent the following day, when Ichiban and company have to fight the anger of former Yakuza. Afterwards, Ichiban gets reunited with Arakawa, who he tells that he feels is like a surrogate father, and the two share a wonderful moment.
While the closure of the two largest Yakuza organizations in Japan is a significant development (after all, this is a series based solely on organized crime), it is interesting to see that such an action-packed series takes this decision through use of real politics (or at least something similar to the real world).
