I don't think they operate in my area, so I'd say no.

Why would I be giving a thought to ganstas that live in Japan?

They're not really a large presence in NY but I would find them intimidating if I lived in Japan. I wouldn't say scary since they have no reason to start shit against me and I have no reason to fuck around with their business. The most we'd come in contact would probably when I go to a tattoo shop or a public onsen/sento that allows tattooed folks like myself. Most bath houses don't allow people with tattoos in Japan, FYI. So my choices are usually limited to either private ones or ones that have regular yakuza members.

Not really. They are actually pretty friendly to Gaijin or just ignore them. If you have them in your neighborhood they usually make great neighbors.

I asked this to one of my friends I was visiting one day while living in Japan. I knocked on his door and behind me were 20 Yakkuza walking to a house. I asked him about it and if he was nervous.

He was like "No, they are actually great neighbors" The only time there was a slight issue was when one Yakuza member was killed and they had a funeral. They blocked of his road for about an hour but that was it. It was a respect thing.

Other than that you might have an underling approach you in some neighborhoods asking if you want sex with a Japanese girl.

Maybe, but not as much as the Mexican drug cartels which carry a variety of automatic weapons.

Never met any.
But I hear they do good things for the people of Japan.
I wish gangs in America where more like the Yakuza, I can at least respect them.

Nah, they tend to be pretty chill dudes if you're not doing anything wrong. They tend not to bother with people with no affiliation to other families or gangs. If you're shoplifting from their area of town or something you might be in trouble, but just walking around? Nah. Most of the time they look like normal businessmen so you hardly notice they're there.

No, police are always watching my back for some reason.
