1. Did this clan really existed?

2. Were they really were so mean? I mean, kill everyone?

Because in the movies they show the clan as a blood thirsty maniacs who kill for fun... And i wonder if they were actually good and all...

Anyone replay me thanks...

Huh... Which Yakuza clan are you talking about?

You have a couple of Gumi's. The largest one is the Yamaguchi-Gumi with over 40.000 members.

Don't watch to much movies, and please know that there is a google for basic information.

Hm, i'm no expert on the history of yakuza in japan, but they definately exist, and are still in large numbers even to this day.
Asking whether yakuza exist in japan or not is like asking whether gansters exist in america- of couse they do, but their tactics probably vary a great deal, with some being more violent or intelligent than others etc.
