|2||Closed CaptioningVideoCrime Lords of Tokyo||Tokyo: orderly...modern...and seemingly safe. But this vast neon city hides a dark secret.

For people on the inside, however, nothing could be more obvious than the power of Japan's infamous organized crime syndicates known as the Yakuza. National Geographic takes you inside this secretive underworld to meet the real Yakuza-thugs and high-ranking bosses-plus the people who write about their every move, and the cops who track them down. Incredible personal stories and candid interviews reveal an organization both honorable and corrupt, violent and restrained, compassionate and driven by an insatiable greed.||45:21||$1.99||View in iTunes|
