Formation17th century

The Yakuza are organised crime groups in Japan.

“Parts of the Japanese system have long relied on Japan’s peculiar form of organized crime – known internationally as the Yakuza. Yakuza syndicates may actually help to maintain a low crime rate, with gangsters keeping an eye on unorganized crime in return for governmental blind eye. But the Japanese case does not come close to the level of criminality of the American variety.”
Karel van Wolferen[citation needed]

Yakuza exclusion ordinances

"Japanese MMA & The Yakuza" with Enson Inoue (from Joe Rogan Experience #316)[1]

Since 2011 laws have been passed to prohibit citizens from making or keeping up a relationship with the Yakuza. Members of Yakuza groups can not get a bank account. Anyone who provides a bank account in stead can be prosecuted. Paying cash from demands of blackmail are also criminalized.[2][3][4]
