Yakuza: Like A Dragon – Whispers Of The Underworld (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 Whispers Of The Underworld

This substory / side quest is triggered during Chapter 9 – A House Of Cards

It involves unlocking a secret hidden weapon shop

  • LOCATION: Isezaki Iljincho, Koreatown
  • QUEST GIVER: Iroha, Brawny Man
  • CHAPTER: Chapter 9 – A House Of Cards
  • PREREQUISITE: Max out your Personality Stats


  • In order to start this substory you will need to max out your Personality Stats. The easiest way to do this is to use the Dragon Kart mini-game, then buy the book that Fujisawa has
  • After doing that. Proceed and go to the ladders on the map (next to Kinka Pharmacy)
  • Here talk to the Brawny Man who is guarding the ladders.
  • Choose the option ‘What’s up here?’
  • Thanks to your improved Personality Stats they will allow you access to the ladders. Apparently it leads to a hidden Gambling area.
  • After the scene, leave the area and head to Bar Survive and speak to Iroha
  • Iroha will tell you more about a shipping company named Zhou Long Trading. She will also give you a password to remember Lau Chau Chau Ya
  • Your next objective is to head to Restaurant Row and speak to the Distribution Employee
  • Choose the Say the Password option
  • The password is Lau Chau Chau Ya (Second option)
  • A fight will then break out
  • The owner of the secret weapon shop will now arrive. He will ask you to meet him at Kinka Bridge
  • Return back down the once guarded ladders in order to meet up with the owner once again
  • Here the owner of the shop will finally reveal his name, Chau Ka Long
  • Chau Ka Long sells quite a large range of various weapons, some of which are quite good too. However, a lot of it can be somewhat expensive.
  • Anyway for the next part I’m not fully sure how to trigger the continuation of the substory. I tried purchasing items from him and leaving and returning back to him. I’m not sure what out of those is actually the trigger but what you need to do is activate and reveal a blue speech bubble. So purchase stuff from him and basically do what I did until that happens.
  • When a blue speech bubble does indeed appear, speak to Chau once again to end the substory.
