The Yokohama Seiryu Clan Headquarters rules over the underworld of Isezaki Ijincho. Thorough measures have been taken to prevent intruders from raiding the building. It is said to have relentless security layered throughout, and that even if an intruder managed to make their way inside, they would not be able to make it out alive.
