Hayamoto's Bodyguards were elite enforcers within the Japanese Mafia (Yakuza) and were specially chosen to be Masahiro Hayamoto's bodyguards.
Hayamoto's bodyguards perform several roles such as acting as a close protection team. Hayamoto's bodyguards acted as driver-bodyguards, close-protection officers (who escorts the client), or part of an ancillary unit that provides support such as detection, electronic "bug" detection, counter-sniper monitoring, pre-searches facilities, and background-checks people who will have contact with Masahiro Hayamoto.
The bodyguards have a stereotypical appearance and members are often seen wear sunglasses, dress suit trousers, dress shoes and a white vest so that their profession can be immediately recognized by civilians.
