Now, wait a minute folks, no one has produced any evidence of the yakuza wanting to be paid back for their help in the Kobe earthquake. Until someone does the comments about wanting "service money" later seem unfounded.
Just like if I were to cynically say that "Gang members were also said to have patrolled the damaged areas to discourage looting." may mean they were looking for opportunities to loot but saying they were guarding against OTHERS loooting. I have no evidence for that, so cannot suggest it.
Seriously though, they are rich Japanese. They can help. Why wouldn't they? It would be a story if they didn't help.
