As Majima's former boss,he had Sagawa order Majima to kill Makoto Makimura as part of a plan to acquire the Empty Lot.

As old rivals, he knows the threat Kazama poses, and plans to clear the Tojo Clan of all who support him.

Yakuza Kiwami 2

Deceased. Former patriarch of the Shimano Family, a Tojo Clan subsidiary. Was known as one of the head executive members of the Tojo Clan alongside Kazama, a fellow Dojim Family member. When it came time for Kazama to become captain, Shimano left and started his own family. Leading guys like Majima who bore outstanding strength, the Shimano Family made a name for itself as a group to be feared. During the events of 2005, he was a key player in the Tojo Clan's war of succession, and though he fought both Nishikiyama and Kiryu, in the end, his failure cost him his life.
