    Tokyo cops: Corpse located in forest after confession by yakuza boss

    Skeletal remains believed to be of a real estate executive were found in Isehara City on Tuesday

    KANAGAWA (TR) – Following a confession by gang boss currently on death row, Tokyo and Kanagawa police have discovered a corpse in a mountainous area of Isehara City that is believed to be a man murdered by the mobster in a separate case, reports TBS News (April 19).

    On Tuesday, investigators scouring a wooded area found skeletal remains clothed in pajamas. The remains are likely that of Shizuo Tsugawa, a 60-year-old real estate executive, who is believed to have been murdered two decades ago.

    Officers were working off a tip provided by Osamu Yano, a 67-year-old former head of the Yano Mutsumi-kai, a one time affiliate gang of the Sumiyoshi-kai.

    Yano is currently on death row for ordering two members of his gang to carry out a shooting that left four people dead at a “snack” hostess club in Maebashi City, Gunma on January 25, 2003.

    In the Kanagawa case, Yano has admitted to murdering the real estate executive in 1996 over a dispute the gang had with him over a redevelopment project near Isehara Station.

    A DNA analysis will be used to determine if the remains are in fact those of Tsugawa.

    Depending on the progression of the investigation, police may apply murder charges to Yano.

    Japan braces for violence among 'yakuza' crime gangs

    TOKYO — Japan is bracing for war.

    Not with other countries, but with the nation's notorious gangsters.

    A 43-year-old man was gunned down in the parking lot of a hot springs resort in western Japan earlier this month in what authorities say they fear could be the start of a deadly war among the nation's largest organized crime gangs, known collectively as the yakuza.

    The powerful Yamaguchi-gumi crime syndicate, which marked its 100th anniversary this year, split into two rival groups in September. Police arrested a member of the Yamaguchi-gumi in the hot springs shooting and identified the victim as a member of the breakaway group.

    Analysts said the rupture was due to long-running disputes over succession plans and high fees that member groups were required to pay Yamaguchi-gumi leaders.

    Japan’s National Police Agency warned of possible gang violence at an emergency meeting of senior officials from each of the country's 47 prefectures shortly after the split. "We don't have specific information thus far that the rift will develop into inter-gang conflicts, but there were incidents in the past which involved civilians," Takashi Kinoshita, chief of the JNPAs organized crime division, said at the meeting in early September, according to local media.

    A dispute over the gang’s leadership in the early 1980s led to a two-year war that left an estimated 30 gangsters dead, 70 others wounded and more than 500 in police custody. However, there are no statistics on the number of civilians killed or injured in the violence.

    Today, local news media report that yakuza groups are beginning to stockpile weapons and recruit members to carry out potential hits. The price of a handgun sold on the black market has risen from $2,500 to $10,000 in recent weeks, according to Asahi Shimbun, a leading mainstream newspaper.

    Legal firearms are highly restricted in Japan. In a nation of roughly 127 million people, Japan had just 35 cases of firearm shootings in 2010, according to the most recent data available from the National Police Agency's “Crime in Japan” report.

    Last month, in the western Japanese city of Toyama, one yakuza group paraded as many as 100 gangsters down a busy street in a show of strength. Two nights later, a rival group did the same nearby, Kyodo News Service reported. Authorities responded by sending scores of police to raid each group's headquarters, according to Kyodo.

    Police estimate that Yamaguchi-gumi had about 10,000 core members and about 14,000 affiliated members before the split. About one-third are believed to have broken off to form a rival organization, called the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi.

    Atsushi Mizoguchi, a journalist and author who has written extensively on the yakuza, said it is unlikely that senior leaders would order a full-on war. But he said at least some violence is likely as rival groups fight for turf.

    “If organized criminals were able to establish viable revenues by invading the domain of others … it could lead to skirmishes in various places around the country. That could expand and eventually could well lead to a (violent) struggle,” Mizoguchi said at a Tokyo press briefing this week.

    Jake Adelstein, a Tokyo journalist and authority on organized crime, is less sure. He points to the case of Tadamasa Goto, a yakuza boss who was ordered to pay $1.2 million in damages to the family of a real estate agent murdered by members of his gang in 2012. Although Goto was not charged in the death, he was still held liable.

    “The situation is very different from what it was in the '80s,” Adelstein said. “It's not economically wise to have a gang war. The general public is no longer tolerant of yakuza conflict. It's costly to kill people.”

    Yakuza gangs, long tolerated as a “necessary evil” in Japan, have been in slow decline since organized crime countermeasures were enacted in the early 1990s. Many gangs still operate semi-openly, however, with headquarters, business cards and legitimate-appearing front companies.

    Yakuza engage in a variety of “serious criminal activities, including weapons trafficking, prostitution, human trafficking, drug trafficking, fraud and money laundering,” according to a February 2012 report from the U.S. Treasury Department. Extortion, loan-sharking and “protection” rackets also are common yakuza activities in Japan.

    President Obama issued an executive order in 2011 designating the yakuza as a “transnational criminal organization.” The Treasury Department has since frozen assets in the U.S. of more than a dozen yakuza bosses — including the leaders of the Yamaguchi-gumi and the breakaway Kodo-kai gang — and has forbidden Americans from doing business with them.

    In a report issued in April, the Treasury Department labeled the Kodo-kai “the most violent faction within the Yamaguchi-gumi” and said the yakuza has engaged in drug trafficking and money laundering in the United States, but did not provide details. There is no indication that any yakuza violence as a result of the recent split could spread to the U.S.

    Ibaraki cops arrest 2 yakuza in beating death of man in Ishioka

    Matsuba-kai gangsters allegedly beat a company employee to death on a road in Ishioka City

    IBARAKI (TR) – Ibaraki Prefectural Police have arrested two organized crime members in the beating death of a 32-year-old male company employee in Ishioka City, reports TBS News (April 18).

    In the early morning hours of April 16, Ryunosuke Seki, 22, and Masataka Iino, 32, both of whom are members of the Matsuba-kai, are alleged to have beaten the head and abdomen of Yusuke Kawashima on a road. The victim subsequently died.

    The following day, Seki learned that Kawashima had succumbed to his injuries by a reading a newspaper article. The gang member then turned himself over to police.

    Both suspects have been charged with manslaughter. Neither suspect has commented on the allegations, according to police.

    Kawashima is known to have visited a restaurant managed by Iino. Police are now investigating whether the visit to the restaurant is connected to the incident.

    Saitama cops: Yakuza car, office hit with Molotov cocktails

    A vehicle owned by a Yamaguchi-gumi boss and an office were hit by arson attacks early Wednesday

    SAITAMA (TR) – Saitama Prefectural Police are investigating two arson attacks that targeted an affiliate gang of the recently troubled Yamaguchi-gumi, reports TV Asahi (Mar. 16).

    At approximately 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, emergency services received a tip about a vehicle on fire in a parking lot in Kumagawa City. Fire fighters arriving at the scene quickly extinguished the blaze. The car, which is owned by the boss of the gang, was left with severe burn marks on its hood.

    Shortly thereafter, police discovered a shattered front window and burned wall and floor at the gang’s office in Gyoda City, which is located about six kilomters away from the parking lot.

    Police suspect that both incidents are the result of thrown Molotov cocktails. There were no reports of injuries in either attack.

    In September, the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi formed as a rival to the Yamaguchi-gumi. Police believe that the attacks are related to this move.

    Nagano cops: Yakuza feud continues with shooting at office

    Police found several bullet holes in a window of an office of the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi in Ueda City

    NAGANO (TR) – Nagano Prefectural Police suspect that a shooting incident at an office of the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi organized crime group in Ueda City on Tuesday is related to an ongoing gang dispute, reports NHK (April 12).

    At approximately 3:30 a.m., officers on a routine patrol heard shots fired at the office, located in the Chuo area. The officers subsequently found several bullet holes in a glass window.

    At the time of the shooting, several gang members were inside, but there were no reports of injuries.

    Police suspect that the shooting is connected to an incident that took place in Ueda last month in which an office of the Yamaguchi-gumi in Ueda was hit by a Molotov cocktail.

    Police are viewing both incidents as part of a surge in violence in recent weeks between the Yamaguchi-gumi and the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi.

    The Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi formed following the dissolution of the Yamaguchi-gumi last summer. Law enforcement has been on high alert over fears of escalating violence between the two gangs as they battle over turf across the nation.

    Senior yakuza gunned down in Okayama parking lot

    OKAYAMA – Police in the city of Okayama were on alert Wednesday after the deadly shooting of a senior member of a branch of the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi crime syndicate.

    Okayama Prefectural Police said Tadashi Takagi, 55, of the gang’s Ikeda-gumi faction, was found dead at 9:50 a.m. on Tuesday.

    He was lying face down in the parking lot of the apartment building where he lived with his family.

    There were gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen. He was rushed to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

    Local residents reported hearing three shots. A passer-by called an ambulance.

    A male suspect reportedly fled the scene on a motor scooter. No gun was found.

    The police believe the case is linked to an ongoing power struggle between the Yamaguchi-gumi crime syndicate — the nation’s largest yakuza group — and the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi splinter group, which broke away last August.

    Investigative sources quoted residents as witnessing a man wearing a helmet driving away on a minibike parked along the north side of the building.

    Investigators were reviewing video from surveillance cameras installed in the area.

    They informed schools nearby that the suspect remains on the run.

    School operators beefed up security. One local day care center kept its children indoors for safety.

    A woman living in the building said she was in her apartment when she heard three gunshots and screams. She said she suspected it involved Takagi’s family.

    “I’ve seen people who looked like gangsters parking their cars near my apartment,” said a 47-year-old man living nearby. “It made me feel worried. Now something has actually happened.”

    A 27-year-old said: “I’ve heard rumors about gangsters living in this building, but nothing like this has happened before.”

    According to the National Police Agency, it was the first fatal shooting since the Yamaguchi-gumi and the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi were acknowledged as being in a state of all-out war in March. The groups broke apart last August.

    Since the split, firearms have been used in eight of 75 incidents recognized as gang clashes, not including Takagi’s case.

    At around noon, Hideyuki Yamamoto, 32, turned himself over to police in the shooting death of Tadashi Takagi, a 55-year-old executive in the Okayama-based Ikeda-gumi, an affiliate gang of the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi.

    Yamamoto has been charged with murder and violating the Swords and Firearms Control Law.

    On the morning of May 31, Takagi was shot in the chest and abdomen in a parking lot of an apartment building, located in the Toyonari area of Minami Ward.

    Tokyo police search for another body based on confession by yakuza

    SAITAMA (TR) – Following a confession by gang boss currently on death row for a murder in 2003, Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Wednesday began searching in a mountainous area of the town of Tokigawa for a corpse that is believed to be that of a man killed in a separate case, reports the Mainichi Shimbun (July 6).

    About 60 investigators are scouring a wooded area the remains of Mamoru Saito, a 49-year-old real estate executive who went missing in 1998.

    Officers are working off a tip provided by Osamu Yano, a 67-year-old former head of the Yano Mutsumi-kai, a one time affiliate gang of the Sumiyoshi-kai.

    Yano is currently on death row for ordering two members of his gang to carry out a shooting that left four people dead at a “snack” hostess club in Maebashi City, Gunma on January 25, 2003.

    This is the second such incident involving Yano that has emerged this year. In April, police using information provided by the mobster found the body of Shizuo Tsugawa, a 60-year-old real estate executive, in a mountainous area of Isehara City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

    Yano told police that he killed Tsugawa in 1996 over a dispute the gang had with him over a redevelopment project near Isehara Station.

    In the case of Saito, he went missing after a meeting in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo’s Toshima Ward on April 5, 1998. According to information released in a court-related report in September of 2014, Yano said Saito was abducted and strangled to death over money problems that included a loan of 86 million yen.

    A male acquaintance of Yano later dumped Saito’s body. During questioning, the acquaintance revealed the location to police.

    In March and April of 1997, Saito was called to the National Diet to testify in connection to a fraud trial involving Tatsuo Tamobe, then a member of the House of Councillors.

    Gang warfare surges as senior yakuza gunned down in Nagoya

    NAGOYA -- A senior yakuza member was gunned down here July 15, signaling an escalation of gang warfare between the nation's largest crime syndicate, the Yamaguchi-gumi, and a splinter group.

    After being alerted to the sounds of gunfire, police rushed to an apartment building in the city’s Naka Ward around 4:40 p.m. and found the man in one unit with bullet wounds to his head and other parts of his body.

    The victim, Tatsuo Saiki, was confirmed dead about an hour and half later. Saiki, 64, was with a member of a gang affiliated with the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi.

    Police, who are searching for two men seen driving away from scene, say the slaying appears to mark a surge in a violent power play between the two groups.

    According to the Aichi prefectural police, the two men entered the unit and opened fire.

    Another man who was in the apartment with Saiki was his acquaintance and reported the incident to police.

    The apartment is located about1.2 kilometers from Sakae, the city’s entertainment district, and near schools.

    A silver car was found ablaze in a parking lot, about 2 km south of the scene, in the city’s Showa Ward.

    Prefectural police believe the car was used by the perpetrators based on witness accounts and they set fire to the vehicle to destroy evidence.

    Chiba cops: Decomposed body likely of yakuza found in home

    CHIBA (TR) – Chiba Prefectural Police suspect that the decomposed body found in a residence in Chiba City belongs to a male member of an organized crime group, reports Mainchi Shimbun (July 8).

    At approximately 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, a woman tipped off police after finding “a male acquaintance dead” inside the residence, located in the Hondacho area of Midori Ward. Police arriving at the scene found the man, believed to be a 59-year-old upper-level member of the Yamaguchi-gumi, lying face-up in a second-floor bedroom.

    The body, which had partially decomposed, did not exhibit any external injuries. Police suspect he died a few days before the discovery. Scattered about the room was a firefighting agent from an extinguisher.

    The woman who made the discovery, a resident of Tokyo, regularly visited the gang member. Since police have been unable to contact another person living at the residence, it is believed that foul play of some kind led to the gang member’s death, according to Nippon News Network (July

    Japan police capture 976 yakuza to prevent 'state of all-out war'

    Japanese police have arrested nearly 1,000 members of criminal gangs to prevent an "all-out war" between rival yakuza factions.

    The arrests are intended to deplete manpower and funds from the Yamaguchi-gumi, the nation's largest crime syndicate, and the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi, which broke away in August last year.

    A worrying precedent for such a breakaway was set in 1984, when 25 people were killed and 70 others injured in bloody clashes between rival gangs.

    Japanese police set up a dedicated unit to "intensify" their response to the group's split and began conducting a series of raids and arrests.

    Since the country's National Police Agency announced the gangs were in a "state of all-out war" on 7 March, they have arrested 976 gangsters, often over minor infractions, The Asahi Shimbun reports.

    “After the split, the police have been relentlessly arresting members even for spontaneous scuffles or damage to property,” a gangster allegedly affiliated with the Yamaguchi-gumi told the paper.

    “Every time someone gets arrested, we have to pay for a lawyer. It is a horribly exhausting battle.”

    Of those arrested, 623 were members of the Yamaguchi-gumi and 353 were from Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi.

    Bodyguard shot dead in apparent Kobe yakuza feud

    Japan Times

    KOBE – A man believed to be a bodyguard of the head of a yakuza splinter group linked to the largest crime syndicate in the country was shot dead during a violent ambush Tuesday in Kobe, police said.

    The man, identified as Yuhiro Kusumoto, 44, was shot on a street in Nagata Ward at around 10 a.m. in an incident believed to be connected to an apparent feud with the Yamaguchi-gumi, according to police.

    The man was taken to a hospital but pronounced dead about 75 minutes later.

    The splinter group, Ninkyo Yamaguchi-gumi, was formed in April after separating from the Yamaguchi-gumi.

    On Tuesday, several cars apparently belonging to the new group tried to enter a main street and were forced to stop by another vehicle in an ambush, where gunshots were heard, the police said.

    A suspect who carried out the shooting, believed to be in his 40s or 50s, fled after leaving a vehicle at the scene of the incident, they said.

    At least two gunshots were heard in the residential area .

    “I heard a noise like when a tire went flat,” said a nearby shopkeeper, adding that as he rushed outside, he saw a man lying next to a car with the door left open on the driver’s side.

    Another person witnessed men arguing and wrestling on the street before he heard the first gunshot. The second gunshot was fired while the witness was trying to report the incident to the police, he said.

    An elementary school nearby decided to close early for the day and directed the students to go home in groups under supervision by teachers.

    “I’m worried that children may get caught up” in the gang violence, said a women in her 30s who lives in the neighborhood.
