Coming from an Eastern background, Kimota brought an unusual style to Midtown when he set up his barbershop, Isao Kimota's. He worked alongside the Barzini family to ensure his business remained safe, while he also made friends with the Midtown Police Chief.
Despite his reputation as one tough cookie, Kimota was approached by Aldo Trapani in the early Fifties, whereupon he was convinced to turn over a cut of his business to the Corleone family.
Behind the scenes
In later versions of the game, he has his own character model, while on the original one he will either have Dino DeMantagna's or Tyler Rocca's.
