When “Mike” spotted a newspaper advert for a clinic making prosthetic fingers in the 90s, he thought it was a scam. But the ex-yakuza member had booked himself a consultation within the hour. For almost a decade, a stumpy pinkie on his left hand had marked out his previous allegiance to the criminal world, preventing him from leading a normal life.

A fake little finger, he thought, sounded outlandish, but it was worth a shot. It might allow him to disguise his past—and help shield against Japanese society’s prejudiced view of ex-yakuza members in search of redemption.

“I wasn’t sure if it would work,” Mike told me, “but I really wanted to meet people without worrying about what they'd think.”

It's very interesting, but if youve lived in Japan...... it was hilarious to me. Knowing what I do about Yakuza. I had no idea how they anguished over their lost pinkies.

She's very y cool though. Brave too. I'd not want to go or with guys like that. They still always know someone from the old days.

Most Japanese girls are simpering idiots. Cannot stand how they act. She's very cool. Osaka girls are more independent than tokyo girls.
