Condition[edit]

Takamatsu

The Shinwa-kai has been based in Takamatsu, Kagawa[2] ever since its formation,[3] and the only designated yakuza group based in the Shikoku region.[1] The Shinwa-kai is one of the four designated yakuza syndicates active in Kagawa Prefecture, along with the Yamaguchi-gumi, the Sumiyoshi-kai, and the Kyodo-kai.[5]

Since 1996, the Shinwa-kai has been a member of an anti-Yamaguchi federation named the Gosha-kai, along with four Chugoku-based organizations, the Kyosei-kai, the Kyodo-kai, the Goda-ikka, and the Asano-gumi.[6]
