How to romance Yui in Yakuza Kiwami

Everything needed to know to max out Yui's affection!

Yui Hatano is the hostess at Club Jewel in Yakuza Kiwami. Her self introduction may come off as a bit standoffish but she can quickly warm to Kiryu when given the chance. Cabaret clubs can be expensive so it's recommended to have some cash to spare when spending time there.

Upon meeting Yui after being escorted to Club Jewel from the MEB, players will have a choice to talk, give gifts, and order drinks or food. Maxing out Yui's affection to S Rank shouldn't take much time at all when offering the correct responses but to speed up the process, it's important to know what she likes.

  • Drinks - Yui prefers Orange Juice and Gold Champagne. Orange Juice is much cheaper and gives the same amount of affection.
  • Food - Yui prefers the Chicken Basket and the Pickled Vegetables.
  • Gifts - As long as Kiryu doesn't give the same gift twice, any gift will increase Yui's affection.
  • Dates - Yui likes going out for sushi. It should be noted that bowling is fine but will have a neutral effect.

When talking with Yui she will have many topics of conversation that will begin to recycle once answering them all at some point. These are the responses that will yield the best results.

Rank Questions

Upon first meeting Yui and every subsequent visit after rank up, Kiryu will be asked a series of questions from her. These questions won't be right after another and will only be asked once ranking up. These are the responses in order for maximum affection. Responses that yield that same result have been omitted.

  • I was in prison.
  • At least you're honest.
  • Men need to consider a girl's feelings.
  • Honesty is the best policy.
  • They're jerks.
  • How about "I love you"?
  • What a weird guy…
  • That's certainly possible.
  • Bet you're in love already.
  • You won't fall in love, right?
  • Looking forward to it.

General Conversation

Aside from the questions, Yui will ask between ranks, what she decides to talk about can be in any order. Here is every topic and the response that yields the most affection.

  • Classes - Cooking class.
  • Plastic Surgery - It's your sister's choice.
  • Class Reunions - They're being antisocial.
  • Buy Presents - That's an old trick.
  • Toy Poodle - The sooner you get him, the better.
  • Online Reviews - You're not cute.
  • Pictures - Just don't even smile.
  • 18 Years Old - Do you do that too? - Challenge accepted.
  • Movies - Age really matters.
  • Being Late - I'm sorry to hear that.

Players searching for the hostess-related trophies and achievements will have no problem asking Yui out. Beat her in Mahjong and that's another trophy/achievement in the bag. There is also fun to be had with Karaoke and once her Substory is finished, her affection will be maxed out. If the Completion List entry doesn't display this, simply go back to the club and after a date, her rank should rise to S.
