Maiham Media recently released their controversial new short, titled Black Business: Modern Day Yakuza. Beautifully shot on location, the viewers are instantly transported to the dark streets of Japan where we get an intimate look into the Yakuza.
From Maiham Media:
Japan is famous for many things, such as technology, sushi, temples, geisha and amazing customer service. One side of Japan not often seen but living in plain sight are the people conducting in “Black Business”, the Yakuza. They’re not petty criminals confined to the streets, they’re international business men. Using knowledge, money, powers of persuasions and their influence in the government to help secure them lucrative international black business deals.
To the everyday citizen they serve as no threat, often polite and well spoken but if you are one to do business with them; Make no mistake they’re ruthless, calculated people that will not hesitate to better their position at your expense.
Forgot what you think you know, Japan is not all smiles and friendly customer service…
