Kamurocho Hills, occasionally referred to simply as Kamuro Hills, is the second-largest building in Kamurocho. Its construction takes place throughout the Yakuza series, starting with Yakuza 2, and ending with its completion in Yakuza: Dead Souls. It is a gargantuan shopping complex with high-end shops and even a supermarket contained within it.
Construction of Kamurocho Hills started at the beginning of 2006, with the demolition of West Park.
Yakuza 2/Yakuza Kiwami 2Edit
Built upon what was formerly known as West Park, the area has been cleared to make way for the Kamurocho Hills construction site, overseen by Goro Majima and his construction company. Kiryu enters through the same bathroom entrance that he did during the previous Yakuza games. Purgatory is also accessed through the same former subway station entrance as the previous games.
In 2007, due to the events of the previous year, Kamurocho Hills' construction was cancelled. The semi-constructed skeleton was pulled down in the intervening two years. In Yakuza 3, what was once the Kamurocho Hills construction site is now a concrete pad, the Purgatory entrance its only remaining permanent construction. The name West Park has also made a return.
The nearly completed Kamurocho Hills is the subject of envy for rival groups of the Tojo Clan, and with the death of Masaru Ihara, it is the bargaining chip that Daigo Dojima refuses to part with, sacrificing its proprietor, Goro Majima to Isao Katsuragi in its stead.
Further progress of Kamurocho Hills' construction means that the former entrance to Purgatory has been blocked off, and Kiryu must now access it through a manhole in the Children's Park.
Yakuza: Dead SoulsEdit
Kamurocho Hills has finally been completed prior to the events of the game. Its grand opening is however interrupted by the Thanatos outbreak. It becomes a refuge for civilians, who are looked after by Daigo Dojima, Goro Majima, and the other Tojo Clan men also trapped inside.
- According to Yakuza: Dead Souls, Kamurocho Hills' grand opening was in April of 2011.
- In Judgment, the building is mostly referred to as "Kamuro Hills", although it still appears as "Kamurocho Hills" on the map.
