Goh Mishima born in as Tsuyoshi Yoshida , born in Yokosuka, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan, was an artist and a popular figure within the gay community of Tokyo for his contributions to gay rights and Japanese gay art. In his youth he attends the traditional Japanese schools and when he is 18 he is drafted for the army, where he has his first homoerotic experiences with fellow soldiers. During that chaotic post-war period, which created a lot of opportunities for illegal activities, another subculture arose, the Japanese Mafia also known as The Yakuza. Goh was fascinated by the exposure of their aggressive masculinity, their violent behavior, stoic facial expressions, short haircuts kakugari and heavily tattooed bodies.

This idea for this essay arose out of material I had gathered for my Ph. The very long and complex history of homosexual relations within Japanese Buddhist institutions has only now come to light in the English-speaking world with the recent translation of a few key documents and a number of commentaries on them these are referenced throughout the pages below. My point in making this research available in this journal is not to argue that such relationships should become normative today, for the present configuration of sexuality within modern western culture makes this inconceivable. Because of the strong reactions that discussion of homosexuality can produce in Anglo-American cultures  , I have tried to make this an academic argument, referencing all my sources and acknowledging my own speculations as such. From the earliest times until today, indigenous Japanese religion, known as Shinto, has maintained a sex-positive ideology, particularly with regard to the role of sex in procreation.
