One guide shows a picture of him in the restaurant. Another says Mr. Yukawa is
spotted at Takara Sushi. But both of the guides don't tell how you can meet him.
Some magazine might have revealed the strategy.

Anyway, we talked about this over and over again at Shenmue BBS. So, it's quite
a common knowledge among Japanese fans.

Isn't that Mr. Yuwaka's face on the battery boxes in the tomato convience store as well?
Tonight, the world is ours!
What the f**k is up, motherf**kers- this is Winds of Plague on that two thousand eight sh*t...
We've got the world in the palm of our hands,
Bustas fall down when we're barking commands-
Atlas ain't got sh*t on our steez,
Kick out the chair and get on your knees

What´s Mr Yukawa´s role on SEGA today? And what was his role in the Shenmue development?

He's not Senmu, Senior Executive Officer, anymore, but still one of the officers of SEGA.

Actually, he is a president of some smaller companies like this:

http://www.bec-csk.co.jp/co.html

Well, he wasn't really involved in the development of Shemue, but he joined the PR work.
You can see him making a short speech in the Shenmue premiere video.
As he used to be a Senmu, he called himself, "Yukawa Shenmue" there!! :lol:

I see. :) So he´s a popular pr-man..... :) Not very well-known here in the west exactly...

But anyway, thanks for your satisfactory answers. :D

Just on question more; what´s that strange coat the number 1 toy-Yukawa wears?

Do you mean "Happi" coat like this?

"Happi" is usually worn at traditional Japanese festivals, and Mr. Yukawa often
wore it at SEGA events. It's in Dreamcast orange. BTW, the Beatles wore
the similar "Happi" when they came to Japan in 1966!! :D

I just did this event....

It would be cooler if he and ryo said something to eachother. But i guess they didn't gave Mr Yukawa a voice in the english version because in the japanese version it's probably mr yukawas real voice.

Yes, you're right. Mr. Yukawa himself did his voice, or rather, the lines were just
copied from What's Shenmue!! ;)

So, you actually met him....well done!! :D

Yeah, it was hilarious! :D There he stood, behind the desk, and shaked some food ;)

But what's this fleeing all about? Why does he run away from ryo?

He's pretending to make sushi. We don't know why he runs away.
Ryo just asks "you're Mr. Yukawa, aren't you?"
And he says either "it can't be!" or "oh, shoot!" and runs away. :D
