Explore Japan with Persona and Yakuza

Explore Japan with Persona and Yakuza

Japan is always a fantastic place to visit. I always dream of visiting this country and it appears that even without vising the land of Rising Sun, anyone can now explore Japan with Persona and Yakuza.

Both these games are utterly brilliant. They depict stunning details of famous locations in Japan. It makes sense, though because both of them are based in Japanese culture. The Kamurocho district in Yakuza, for example, is a representation of Kabukicho district in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Persona, the other one, presents life-like versions of so many famous hot spots around the country’s capital.

If you ever visited Sangenjaya district near Shibuya, you will realize how Persona 5 captures most of the details perfectly through the Yongenjaya district. There are even shops and tight alleys depicted in the games as perfect as in the real Sangenjaya.

Both Yakuza and Persona also captures various public attractions, especially those that are familiar to tourists and travelers. The characters in both games are set to depict today’s latest trends. I even began to wonder that perhaps I could find a character in either game who watch 2018 World Cup news and all World Cup Prediction and odds. In Persona 5, for example, you will explore Japan’s train stations.  In Yakuza 0, however, you will be presented with small details as you walk past hot spots and hear cheery-voiced girls offering packets of tissues.

Another exciting experience while playing these games is you can visit the mysterious life of Japanese people that are still unknown to many tourists. For example, in the real life, tourists are usually not welcomed in hostess clubs in Shibuya and Shinjuku, but in these games, there is no rule like that. Anyone can enter any place. You can enter any hostess club you want and interact with local girls there. As you spend your time with them and train them, you will be able to know them better and dig deeper to Japan’s date and night life.

Another interesting Japan culture you can find in these games is the unique fact of inability to say no. It may sound weird because in many games, we can choose either to accept or refuse the quests offered by the game. However, as this game is founded in Japanese culture, saying no to someone is considered rude. You may not like it, but if you want to explore the real Japan, this game offers even the culture of avoiding saying no to anyone you meet.
