Yoko Arakawa (荒川 よう子, Arakawa Yōko) is a minor character in Yakuza: Like a Dragon.


Yoko was part of the Araboshi-za. She was abusive to her son Masumi Arakawa and gave him his prominent cheek scar. Even though she was married to Toshio Arakawa, she was having an affair with Tora, leeching money from Toshio all the while.

The money she stole from Toshio would incriminate him as a skimmer, causing him to be killed by Ryuhei Hoshino. Yoko and Tora were stated to be killed some time afterward for stealing the Ijin Three's counterfeit money.

Though Yoko is long dead by the time Ichiban Kasuga goes to prison, the effects of her actions are felt by both her son and grandson. Masumi's journey to find his father's killer would lead to a partnership with Hoshino, which allowed him to obtain defective counterfeit bills with which he could discreetly communicate with Hoshino if the time ever came. He gives Kasuga a bill to have Hoshino watch over him.
