The Crane Game
Yojimbo to Daidoji Kinnosuke
Daidoji Yojimbo 2
Yutaka was Daidoji Kinnosuke’s bodyguard. He had the job for a little over 4 years and by all accounts, Kinnosuke was pleased with his performance.
Young, handsome, and daring, Yutaka had a reputation as a womanizer. He was personable and charming, never wanting for company.
Unlike many bodyguards, it was not uncommon for Yutaka to be missing from Kinnosuke’s side.
He did not survive the Rain of Blood.
