Yubi-tsume (lit. finger-cutting) is an atonement ritual in yakuza culture. Gangsters who fail to properly carry out their duty, embarrass their gang, or get their coworkers killed or arrested must make amends to their Godfather (oyabun). The traditional method of apologizing for mistakes and reaffirming loyalty to the gang is through yubi-tsume. This can be done voluntarily, or as a proper response to the demand:(make amends). The offender slices off a knuckle from the pinky for each offense. It is not unusual for yakuza to lose both pinkies.
Yubi-Tepco is a suggested atonement ritual for lying and/or incompetent Tepco executives. It is not unsual for Tepco executives to lose all their fingers.
