Yakuza: Like A Dragon – A Love Worth Fighting For (Substory/Side Quest) Guide

Game Guides

Yakuza: Like A Dragon has many different side quests or substories that you can try to find and complete, one of which is A Love Worth Fighting For

This substory / side quest is triggered during Chapter 5 – The Liumang Man

It involves talking to homeless people who are eager for some free food.

  • LOCATION: Isezaki Iljincho, Commercial District
  • QUEST GIVER: Neat Woman (Shirakawa)
  • CHAPTER: Chapter 5 – The Liumang Man


  • This substory is located in the Commercial District. When you arrive you should notice a group of homeless people queuing up for some free food.
  • Unfortunately one homeless man does not enjoy a person such as Ichiban standing and watching and thus a fight breaks out.
  • After the fight, the Neat Woman will come and offer both Ichiban and the Homeless Man some food and will introduce herself as Shirakawa. Ichiban will then ask for the Homeless Man’s name and after being rather stunned at Shirakawa’s generosity he finally introduces himself as Kuroi
  • Leave the area now and return once again when you notice a blue speech bubble
  • Talk to Kuroi. Turns out he wants to get to know Shirakawa a bit more but is unsure of how to actually talk to her and what exactly her interests are, up steps Ichiban.
  • Talking to Shirakawa, Ichiban learns that she enjoys cooking and attending a gardening programme at College. Return to Kuroi and give him the update
  • Kuroi apparently once worked at a Flower Shop. With the new information he then proceeds to go and speak to Shirakawa
  • Once again leave the area and return when you see a blue speech bubble
  • As both Kuroi and Shirakawa are talking a couple of girls will appear and start commenting on their relationship, which Kuroi over hears and is now determined to change. Select the Clothes option to increase your Style stat by 10
  • After the conversation we now need to head to Jinnai Station
  • Here you will see poor Kuroi trying to make money by selling tissues, perhaps to no real surprise this isn’t exactly going too well.
  • After watching him for a bit you will now need to return to the food area (the area where you originally met both Kuroi and Shirakawa)
  • Speak to Kuroi who seems to be happy as he finally has some money, unfortunately though it isn’t enough. Thankfully Terakado has witnessed Kuroi’s determination to change and gives him some money which fortunately for him is enough for some new clothes. Off to the clothes shop we go!
  • Now in order to continue the substory you will have to wait until daytime. During the day return to the food area once again talk to Kuroi to find out that he plans on taking Shirakawa out on a date. Choose the The Theatre option in order to increase your Style stat by 10
  • Now we have to wait until Nighttime in order to progress once again, and this time we need to travel to Isekazi Road
  • It seems Shirakawa is running late and when she does eventually turn up she ends up bringing her abusive boyfriend with her, a fight eventually breaks out
  • After the fight, the substory will end.
