The Word of the Day for Friday August 29, 2014 is YAKUZA (ya koo za)--a tightly knit Japanese criminal organization with a strict code of honor, such organizations collectively, or a member of such a criminal enterprise. (Sounds like a Japanese version of the mafia to me!)

Beyond Tokyo’s glamorous, world-class skyscrapers and bustling industrial life lies an evil underworld—unknown to most tourists—controlled by the ruthless yakuza.
