|Tetsuya Nagashima - 長島哲也|
|D.O.B.||12th November 1968|
|Appears in||Shenmue I|
Tetsuya Nagashima (Japanese: 長島哲也) is a high school student and delinquent who can often be seen around Dobuita with Akio Enoki. He acts the part of a thug, but in reality he isn't very strong at all, so he tries to always stick to Enoki, or Goro if he's at the New Yokosuka Harbour District. If Ryo tries to talk to Tetsuya after their initial run-in with each other, Tetsuya will act nervous. Recently he has begun to think seriously about his life and doesn't like what he is becoming, so intends to sort himself out and start fresh after he graduates from high school.
Once Goro befriends Ryo after their confrontation with each other at the harbour, Tetsuya will go along with Goro in helping Ryo gain access to Warehouse No. 8 by distracting the security guards and giving Ryo enough time to get inside.
