Kiyomi Kasahara is a character in Yakuza 6, working as a proprietress of a local snack bar in Onomichi, Hiroshima. She's the one who helped Kiryu took care of Haruto during his stay in Hiroshima.
Originally from Hiroshima, Kiyomi left for Tokyo after graduating high school, becoming a hostess in the process where she made a considerable amount of money, until one of her customers forced her to take loans, causing her to be indebted until one of her other customers, Takumi Someya, freed her from her debts by force.
Some time later, Kiyomi and Someya got married and had a daughter, but their marriage was damaged by Someya's yakuza background, of which Kiyomi didn't approve. She tried to leave him with the daughter, but one of Someya's men captured both Kiyomi and their daughter. When their daughter reached the age of three, Kiyomi left her and Tokyo to return to Hiroshima.
Yakuza 6 Edit
During Kiryu's journey in Hiroshima, Kiyomi helped him by providing information about where Kiryu could stay and lending a hand in taking care of Haruto. During the battle in Millenium Tower, she is being held hostage by Kanji Koshimizu. When the team learn of this via videolink, Someya sacrifices himself to stop him from shooting her, but he does so anyway. In the game's epilogue, it's revealed that Kiyomi is in fact still alive: Koshimizu had loaded his gun with blanks as he'd not wished for her to die. She had agreed to act as if she'd died when he fired, not knowing that her ex-husband would go to the length he did to stop her from being shot.
Kiyomi appears to be a friendly woman and a good caretaker, given the fact that she's a mother and that she helped Kiryu to take care of Haruto during his trip to Hiroshima. Despite this, her troubled past with Takumi Someya appears to left a degree of trauma to her.
