Yutaka Ogikubo (荻久保 豊; Ogikubo Yutaka) is a character featured in Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
Ogikubo has a balding hair.
In a newspaper headline, he's shown wearing a two-piece suit. During his hospitalization, he wears in-patient clothes.
A career politician with connections to the criminal underworld, Ogikubo's political career stretches as far as the 1950s, when he was still a member of the city council. At that point, Yokohama's criminal underworld was nearly torn apart by the ongoing turf war between Seiryu Clan and Yokohama Liumang. In a bid to prevent a full-scale war between the two factions, Ogikubo offered a business proposition: counterfeiting operations controlled by Liumang and Seiryu Clan, which was agreed by both factions. The scheme allows Yokohama Liumang to import the materials, while Seiryu Clan is in charge of the bills' production. This scheme managed to keep both factions at peace, as well as making Ogikubo, Seiryu Clan, and Yokohama Liumang incredibly wealthy. Ogikubo used this wealth to bribe the police into doing his bidding, making them crack down on crime in specific places. He was also able to use this money to rise in the ranks of the Citizens' Liberal Party.
When the Geomijul was established in Ijincho, production of the counterfeit bills was passed over to them.
