Yakuza Kiwami is a fantastic action adventure game that takes place in modern day Japan. You play as Kazuma Kiryu, a man who has been making a life for himself after spending 10 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. The game does an excellent job of storytelling without getting too heavy handed with the plot. While it is a very good story, there are places where you will need to take a break from all of the drama and excitement. For those times, we have selected eight establishments that Kiryu himself might visit for some fun after beating up some bad guys!
Yakuza Kiwami is available now on PS4 and if you would like to learn more about the game, check out our review!
Stones Coffee (Hotspring)
Kiryu is always looking for ways to relax, and what better way than with a nice hot spring? If you live in Japan or are visiting soon, there are tons of hotsprings that you can visit. One of the most unique ones though is Stones Coffee (known as Hotspring Stones in Yakuza Kiwami). It is a coffee shop that has an onsen theme; the signage and menu both make reference to this. Since Stones Coffee is a real place, it makes for a great real world location to visit! If you aren’t able to make it to Japan, don’t worry because there are other hotsprings that you can visit.

Sega Retro Arcade Games At Ebisu Pachinko Hall
Kiryu loves to relax and play some classic Sega arcade games, which is why we recommend checking out the Sega Arcade at Ebisu Pachinko Hall. In Yakuza Kiwami, you can see the arcade and go inside, however outside of that it isn’t accessible (most likely done to save on development costs). If you are in Japan though, this is a great location to visit because the Sega Arcade has over 20 different classic games for you to play!
Fountain Square At Shibuya Scramble Crossing
After taking out some thugs or playing video games, sometimes you need to take a breather and people watch. The best place for this is at the world famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing! This area can get extremely crowded because of all of the shops and businesses in the area, but it is still worth checking out. Watching thousands upon thousands of people walk through the crossing is a spectacular sight; especially at night when all of the neon shines brightly.
Doutor Coffee (Tenkaichi Street)
You can’t go to Japan without having some good coffee! One place that Kiryu himself might stop by for a cup is Doutor Coffee, located on Tenkaichi Street. Doutor Coffee is a Japanese coffee franchise that originated in the 80’s and has been growing ever since. While it isn’t as big as Starbucks, they still have over 800 locations throughout the country! They also use 100% arabica beans for their coffee, making it some of the best you can find in Japan.
How many chapters in yakuza kiwami?
Yakuza Kiwami has a total of 15 chapters. Each chapter contains many substories for you to complete, as well as several side quests and miscellaneous objectives. If you decide to take on every single available mission in the game, it will probably take about 30-40 hours just to get through everything!
Yakuza Kiwami is a fantastic game that takes place in modern day Japan, and one of the best parts of the game is walking around and exploring all of the great real world locations. If you get tired of walking around outside, make sure to look for any hidden cafes or bars that might be close by!
