The guiding principle of the yakuza structure is the oyabun-kobun relationship. Oyabun literally means "father role"; kobun means "child role." When a man is accepted into the yakuza, he must accept this relationship. He must promise unquestioning loyalty and obedience to his boss. The oyabun, like any good father, is obliged to provide protection and good counsel to his children. However, as the old Japanese saying states, "If your boss says the passing crow is white, then you must agree." As the yakuza put it, a kobun must be willing to be a teppodama (bullet) for his oyabun.
The levels of management within the yakuza structure are much more complex than the Mafia's. Immediately under the kumicho (supreme boss) are the saiko komon (senior adviser) and the so-honbucho (headquarters chief). The wakagashira (number-two man) is a regional boss responsible for governing many gangs; he is assisted by the fuku-honbucho, who is responsible for several gangs of his own. A lesser regional boss is a shateigashira, and he commonly has a shateigashira-hosa to assist him. A typical yakuza crime family will also have dozens of shatei (younger brothers) and many wakashu (junior leaders).
The gameboards of YAKUZA edition are designed in japanese yakusa tattoo (tebori) style.
In a book "Japanese Yakuza" you will find a lot of tattoo designs with the meaning and will be able to know more about the soul of the character you choose. For example, Koi Fish Tattoo Meaning:typically symbolize good luck and fortune because legend has it that koi can climb the falls of the Yellow River to become a dragon. Koi often symbolizes a person’s aspirations to improve themselves. A Koi tattoo is often chosen by those that want to showcase their personal strength or perseverance through difficult situations. Those that have high expectations for their life also tend to get koi tattoos. Should be mentioned that different colours have special meaning! There are a variety of meanings for koi fish tattoos that are less common than those for the traditional orange-gold koi fish. There may also be different meanings for fish that are swimming in different directions. These meanings will be addressed later in the book.
