Real-life Shenmue locations, Ryo Hazuki makes prank calls


Rodger Swan descided to make a trip out to Yokosuka to see if he could find any real world locations based off of Sega's Shenmue. Sure enough, he was able to locate several, including what looks like the path that leads to protagonist Ryo Hazuki's home. See if you can spot any other familiar locations.

Also Shenmue-related are some prank calls (viewable after the jump) that the guys over at Tapezilla have decided to inaugurate their new podcast with. They use voice clips of Ryo to call Terry’s Gold asking for Terry in the first call, resulting in a pretty funny conversation. The second call sees Ryo calling a Hong Kong Buffet asking for directions to Hong Kong. Unfortunately, no one there can help him.

There's also a call where they mess with a guy named Fred.  It's actually a little mean seeing as how he's only trying to sell his PS2. Still, I’ve got to commend the guy for being as patient as he was.
