Yayoi Dojima (堂島 弥生, Dōjima Yayoi) is a recurring character in the Yakuza series first introduced in the original Yakuza. She is the interim chairman of the Tojo Clan in 2006 in the absence of Yukio Terada.
Yayoi is remarkably youthful looking, given that she is the mother of 30-year-old Daigo. She has the appearance of a traditional Japanese woman, wearing a kimono and donning a shimada (geisha) hairstyle. She has a fair complexion and a beauty mark under her lips. In some occasions, she can be seen wielding a katana.
As the interim chairman of the Tojo Clan, she's a considerable force to be reckoned with, leading the clan through war threats from Omi Alliance and against Jingweon Mafia's grudge. As a wife, she loves her husband so much that she decided to challenge Kiryu to avenge her late husband.

She sets up an ambush in Dojima Family Office for Kazuma Kiryu, believing him to be responsible for her husband's death, but after he defeats the ambush and stands face to face with her, Yayoi then realizes that Kiryu in fact took the blame for another person and let him go.
