I'm currently reading 極主夫道 and I'm not sure I understand "十力所". Do you have any ideas? Is it 10 powerful people of the office or something else? Thank you!

    Perhaps if we point out that it's not 力 (the kanji that means power), but a small ヵ that would help you find the relevant entry in the dictionary. – Leebo Mar 10 '18 at 15:24

    What @Leebo said. Or try looking up either of these: 十ヶ所 or 十箇所. – istrasci Mar 10 '18 at 17:31
  • Got it, I had the answer I was looking for, thank you very much ! – sowon Mar 10 '18 at 18:49

箇所(カ所、ヶ所) means a place, a spot, a point, a part.

抗争相手の事務所を十カ所潰した means "The yakuza made ten enemy (Japanese mafia) offices close", "The yakuza destroyed ten enemy (Japanese mafia) offices".

  • But I think in this case it's not the man himself speaking about this. – kuchitsu Mar 11 '18 at 11:04
  • Yes, it is narration. – Yuuichi Tam Mar 11 '18 at 11:10
