In the game world of Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, you can find many useful collectibles. We’ve explored the entire Sotenbori area ourselves and documented the locations of all the hidden objects on the map.
Here’s the deal: Like all games and spin-offs in the Yakuza series, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is packed with collectibles. However, the recycled version of Sotenbori used here has been expanded a bit on the Y-axis, which has added some potential locations for these collectibles.
Another difference from the previous main and side entries is the overall quality of the items. So, in Like a Dragon Gaiden, it’s now more worthwhile for Kiryu to look for hidden items since they often consist of valuable aids such as Staminan X and Taurine bottles. In this guide, Alex, an expert of all Yakuza and Like a Dragon games, visually shows you where to find all the collectibles in Yokohama.
Like a Dragon Gaiden: Where to Find Collectibles in Sotenbori
How to read our map: On the map of Sotenbori below, you’ll see various location markers and numbers. The markers clearly indicate the exact positions of collectibles, while the numbers refer to a legend. That, in turn, certainly reveals what type of item can be found at each location.

Additionally, sometimes we added a “u” after a number. To illustrate:
- 14: The number 14 chosen here as an example represents Sake on the map, meaning you’ll find a suitcase at the marked position next to the number 14 (almost all collectible items are in suitcases) with a bottle of Sake inside. In this case, the suitcase is on the ground or on top of another object.
- 14u: On the other hand, 14u indicates that the collectible item is not on the ground or near the ground. The “u” stands for “up” (or “look up”), signifying that Kazuma Kiryu needs to raise his gaze. The collectible item would then be, for instance, in the crown of a tree, on an external ventilation shaft, or on an awning.

It’s best to search for items with Kiryu, also known as Joryu, in the dark. Especially in the Osaka district of Sotenbori, the developers have made use of the ambient colors and textures to hide objects. During the day, it often doesn’t help that the collectibles flash at short intervals. However, in the dark, they are much easier to find.
Is it Worth Hunting for Collectibles?
Indeed, in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, it pays off to look out for collectibles. Early in the game, you can save a lot of money by using the free regenerative items scattered around the open world.
Additionally, in Sotenbori, you might sometimes find valuable items like gold or silver plates, which you can pawn at the nearest pawnshop. And money is, of course, also important considering you need to regularly upgrade Kiryu’s combat skills.
In this context, finding an item called the Bust Amulet also pays off. It’s an accessory that increases the chances of the bank busting in blackjack – allowing you to earn a tidy sum.
Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will be available from November 8, 2023, for PC (Steam), PlayStation 5/4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. The price for the base game is 50 dollars for all platforms.
