■ Clan Creator
(This section builds upon our previous Clan Creator coverage.)
Put Together Your Clan at the Hideout
On a hill in Onomichi Jingaicho is a place called “La Pente,” and next to the Millennium Tower in Kamurocho is a placed called “M-Side Cafe.” These places will act as your Clan Creator hideouts. From here, you can take on missions and organize your group.
—Choose Missions and Sortie
You can carry out grand battles by choosing missions and sortieing. There are main missions that advance the story, as well as sub missions that you can replay any number of times to train. The missions that appear in Onomichi Jingaicho and Kamurocho are different, and you’ll have to progress through the stories of each town in order to clear every mission. The difficulty level and types of enemies that appear depend on the mission, and since the conditions for victory differ, you should choose and sortie members who are most adequate for the particular mission.
■ Comforting Haruto
Put Haruto in a Good Mood
Haruto is Haruka’s son. While Kiryu is chasing the truth behind that situation, Haruto himself doesn’t particularly worry about such tings. The suddenly cranky Haruto perplexes the Dragon of Dojima. Try to get Haruto to stop crying using various methods.
A Variety of Ways to Comfort Haruto
Rock Haruto left and right, up and down, and pat him to put him in a good mood. But remember, your opponent is a baby. When you don’t meet his requirements for feeling better, you’ll feel the backfire. Haruto is not dealt with by ordinary means, but the smile on his face that comes with feeling better is Kiryu’s greatest reward.
■ The Temple and Shrine
Temples and Shrines are Also a Play Spot
On the outskirts of Onomichi Jingaicho is the Ryunan Shinto shrine. And looking out over the streets and inland sea of Onomichi Jingaicho is the famous Senko-ji temple. These two locations appear in Yakuza 6 as play spots.

At the offertory box in the Senko-ji main temple building, Kiryu can make a monetary offering by flicking the touchpad to throw coins into the offertory.
