He's not an acting figure -- he's a real, "no-frills attached" figure. His name is Shinobu Tukamasa, the 6th and current kumicho (supreme Godfather) of the Yamaguchi-gumi, Japan's largest yakuza organization.

His style becomes more apparent when compared with incompetent Japanese cabinet members. Perhaps, there's something that they can learn from him.

These images were captured when he was released from Fuchu prison on April 9, 2011.
