Yashida didn't fake his death, exactly. His death was imminent. The armor was the only thing that could keep him alive and they were getting him to the armor as quickly as possible, but leading everyone else to believe that he had died. He would have actually died if they hadn't moved him.

Since there was already a plan to assassinate Mariko, they set it up so it would look like Logan was just another victim at the funeral shootout. It wasn't enough that Logan had been poisoned, he needed to be injured badly enough for them to take as well. Presuming it couldn't have been done in the Yashida house, that was the plan to injure him and take him.

The "power squabble" in the family was already there. It was caused by Yashida's obsession, and had gone on for years prior to Logan ever arriving in Tokyo.

Hashada makes sense, but again, that still could have happened without the old man having to fake his death. He still could have sent people after Wolverine, and it would have been less trouble because there would have been no assassination attempt on Mariko, which lead to Logan escaping.

There was a small power squabble in the family, but Shigin was appeased by thinking he would inherit the business. There was no issue with Mariko until the old man made one by naming her the inheritor...which he didn't need to do.

So again, him faking his death didn't give him any edge. Aside from keeping Logan in Japan another day. But with his money and power, I really can't believe that he couldn't have found a way to delay Logan anyway.

All faking his death did was actually waste some of his precious time.

On a side note, I'm insanely jealous that you got to meet Hugh.
