Although Yakuza 5 is certainly about a violent Yakuza upheaval, there’s plenty to do in Japan during the “hero’s” downtime.

Players can take Purikura Prints, spend hundreds of thousands of yen wooing a Hostess, raise and gamble on racing chickens, perfect your timing in Taiko no Tatsujin, win a Hatsune Miku or NiGHTS statue from a UFO catcher game and so much more.

Check out the smorgasbord of screenshots below to see all the fun and (very) weird things you can do in Yakuza 5.
