Shizuka Saito ( 支靜加) a hostess at Club Shine in . She can only be requested by Yakuza 4 Kazuma Kiryu.
Shizuka is noted to be the only hostess at the club who keeps her hair naturally black.
Shizuka is an apprentice embalmer at a funeral home, and speaks to others in a very formal and polite manner. One of her prominent quirks is how she acts around men, and often talks about the fantasies she has regarding washing backs of handsome men in the bath. She has studied Japanese dance for 14 years.
"Shizuka-chan is a traditional Japanese beauty with stunning black hair. She's polite and has incredibly good manners, something you don't see much in young people nowadays. Apparently, she's got a very interesting backstory, especially when it comes to how she came to work at a hostess club. She's 29, a Sagittarius, and her blood type's O! She loves desserts but hates spicy food. Hehehe... Sit down with Shizuka-chan for a few minutes, and watc as her unique aura soothes away all your troubles!"
I know we only met for the first time the other day, but I feel like I've known you for a long time. I was hoping you'd come back.
I've never heard of fortune telling with fish.
Does that mean you think I'm old?
Do I live up to your expectations?
Well, I don't have my license yet, so I'm not officially an embalmer.
So you're studying to get your license?
I didn't know a job like that existed.
I think that's a respectable job.
I wonder about the lives they led and their thoughts... My mind is full of thoughts like that as I do my work.
I'm sure their family would appreciate that.
Do you ever make mistakes?
I'm sure the deceased would appreciate that.
If they can help each other in that way and share their lives... I hope to find someone like that.
You don't hear many women say that these days.
Isn't that kind of old-fashioned?
Yes. For example, I would offer to wash a man's back.
Um... What do you mean by that?
Isn't that a bit aggressive?
And what do they say?
Oh, I think it's just because I only sing songs that older people like, and never pop songs.
It sounds like we have similar tastes.
How old are you, anyway?
What about when you go out with your friends?
I was so angry that he didn't try to hide it from me.
You'd rather he lied to you?
What a scumbag.
You should be glad you found out in time.
I have problems talking with younger people. It's an icky situation.
Don't worry about it.
That's an interesting way to put it.
Don't you want to do something about it?
But the club had already opened and there were a few customers around, so...
You have incredible focus.
Don't the male employees clean the bathroom?
Are you a neat freak?
So of course she wants us to be polite, but she also expects us to be grateful and forgiving. She can talk about it for hours on end.
Sounds like you're lucky to have found her.
I agree with your teacher.
Isn't it tiring to be polite all the time?
Embalming can help a little with that. It can help loved ones accept death and move on.
I can see what the writer meant, though.
I'm sure people will understand someday.
Would you embalm me if I died?
But when I'm by myself, I feel like I still have so much to learn. It's depressing... I wish I was more like you.
You can't ask for the impossible.
Everyone's got to start somewhere.
You're giving me too much credit.
At first I didn't feel like telling you, but I don't like hiding things. I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner.
Everyone has secrets.
Why are you apologizing?
Thanks for telling me.
An 82 feet long roll of correction tape.
That's pretty damn long...
What's so incredible about that?
You like stationery?
Yes, but... I was just thinking of how I'd like to wash your back. Oh, what am I saying? I'm so embarrassed.
I think you've had a little too much to drink.
I wouldn't mind doing the same for you.
Just my back?
Nope! But he watched me from inside. Somehow that made it even more exciting!
That's a good way to catch a cold, you know.
I go out during typhoons myself.
Um.... Are you a masochist or something?
I guess I haven't really changed that much, but at least now I know that it's a problem, so I can try and act a bit more like an adult.
No, don't change. I like that about you.
One of the kids at my orphanage is like that.
They say the child is the father of the man.
I've always thought that, ever since I was a child. That's why I always cut my cat's toenails whenever there's a crescent moon!
I guess that's a good time to do it.
I never would've made that connection.
Do you often look at the moon?
He put the oden in a plastic tub with a lid on it. And then he put the ice cream right on top of the hot oden!
I can't believe it.
Did you insist that he give you a new one?
Ha ha ha! I guess this isn't your day.
And he was right. All I have is a tiny mark on my right shoulder. You can barely see it.
Do people grow aloe in their gardens?
You should be grateful to your grandma.
I guess your head was in the clouds even then.
I ruined our special date with my selfishness.
It was delicious, so don't worry about it.
That's so like you.
Boxed lunches are nice once in a while.
Probably two years.
Are you worried that your family won't approve?
I'm going to miss you.
But now I feel like he's telling me not to use his death as a reason to become an embalmer.
I'm not sure I understand.
That voice you hear is actually your own.
Your voice is so nice and soothing. It makes me feel like I'm dreaming.
Okay, but you shouldn't actually fall asleep.
You're working yourself too hard.
Should I get you a pillow?
I think it's the best one I've ever made. It made me think that something else nice might happen today.
You're just talented.
Women's intuition can be a little scary.
Are your hunches ever wrong?
Do you do anything in particular to stay healthy?
Playing with my kids.
Coming to see you.
If I'm tired, my cat always comes and plops right down in my lap.
Pets are a lot of work, aren't they?
I wouldn't mind trying that myself.
He must be like family to you.
For some reason there were eight Bean Paste Buns, a package of safety pins, and a receipt.
I think you should give up drinking.
Did you eat the buns?
Actually, I can change into a yukata in less than two minutes.
Is that fast?
You're like the perfect Japanese woman.
So it's no problem if I undressed you then.
It makes me so depressed to think of a beautiful city with such a long history just sinking into the ocean.
That's just the way things go.
That worries me, too.
I'll have to visit before that happens.
The middle of next month.
That's pretty soon.
So you're finally going.
Don't forget about me.
