Soutenbori (蒼天堀 Sōtenbori) is the name of the entertainment district in Osaka that played a major role in the stories of Yakuza 2, Black Panther 2 and Yakuza 5.

In contrast to Kamurocho, the atmosphere within Soutenbori is warmer, more laid back, and "mediaeval" as can be told from its being more brightly lit in the prominence of lavish decorations, along with the usage of Osaka-ben amongst most of its inhabitants. In the English version of Yakuza 2, the speech pattern is interpreted through the use of a US Southerner accent.
