Ano Ne

Moved by the devastation left in the wake of the 2011 Japanese tsunami and its nuclear aftermath, Green Day plan a benefit concert to raise money for displaced victims. They travel to Kyoto to make the necessary arrangements with the Tohoku Aid Committee, only to realize that a mistake one of them made years ago has come back to collect more than its due. The boys learn that the secret to Japan's low violent crime rate is the careful hierarchy forming its highly advanced organized crime. But what happens when ranks are broken and Green Day find themselves in the middle of a yakuza dispute?

"Ano Ne" translates roughly to "hey, you know what..."

Picture is by an amazing photographer named Anton Kuster who lived with the yakuza for two years taking photos. He has a phenomenal photo book for sale. Only modified to add text.
