Yujiro Tamaki (玉木裕次郎 Tamaki Yūjirō) is a character in the anime franchise Detective Conan.
Yujiro Tamaki is an old employee at his son Ichiro's bookstore café, and used to own an used bookstore called "Tamaki's Used Bookstore", until he was forced to close it due to its deteriorated status. Although he is old, he still doesn't want to retire and lives in Beika, near Mouri Detective Agency. He is well acquainted with the Detective Boys, since they helped him a lot when he still had his store.
Tamaki is a loving father, that cares for others and is generous, since he didn't care about giving books to children, even though the business wasn't doing well.
While they were visiting an used book warehouse sale, the Detective Boys stumbled upon Tamaki, who was trying to find some books he could sell in his store. Since he had too much stock, they helped him haul it to his place and he gave them orange juice, and let them chose books they could take in free, since he was grateful. The Detective Boys also met his son, a worker at the bookstore, who got into an argument with his father about closing the store or not. The next day, he was found injured under bookshelves in his store and the kids investigated the case to find out the truth. It turns out his son wanted the store to close and used the steam train monument in the park next to the store as a trick to knock down the bookshelves, so the store could close. He didn't imagine his father would be there, since he thought he went to the warehouse sale. Hopefully, they made peace together and opened a bookstore café, where the use bookstore used to be.
Months after the café opened, business went really well and a lot of customers went in, including one that had an old rare book and showed to Tamaki. He was interested in the book and got in a fight with the customer, who was found dead the next day. He was made the prime suspect, but he was cleared of suspicion after Conan told Inspector Megure the truth behind the case.
