A 42-year-old administrative official of the Mito Public Prosecutors Office in Ibaraki Prefecture has been arrested for filming up a high school girl’s skirt with his smartphone on a train.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 7:30 a.m. Friday on the JR Joban Line between Tomobe and Uchihara stations, Fuji TV reported. Police said Yasuhiro Takahashi, who lives in Tsukuba, has admitted to the charge of disturbing the public peace.

Another passenger on the train saw what Takahashi was doing and detained him until the train reached Uchihara Station where police were called.

If "All work and no play makes Taro a naughty boy" sounds too flippant, it's no laughing matter that Japan's out-of-kilter work life balance plus the pressures of a pandemic can result in some people exhibiting this kind of aberrant behavior. The sexual distress suffered by more than a few human beings is a very serious matter indeed and one that the Japanese, like many other nations, have made little effort to address apart from society's usual pablum of holier-than-thou hypocrisy.

"Filming" does, yes. ("up" is the direction his camera was pointed in relation to the skirt.) Just like "taped the conversation" means "audio recorded", and "hung up the phone" means "disconnected the call".

These are all accepted terms, despite their technical inaccuracy, due to their common usage for decades. Odd you've never heard the term "filmed" before.

Seriously? Are there no laws specifically related to sexual misconduct towards a minor? Child pornography maybe?

This charge is only to hold him until they decide which relevant charges to hit him with.

Obviously, you haven't seen pre-teen models showing off their undies from under skirts. This is common in Japan, and not considered pornography - legally.

I'm sure he was just making sure she was wearing panties of approved color.

Japan updated its laws a few years back under international pressure, but Aso made it a condition that the new laws don’t include child porn in Manga.

The thing about Japan is that upskirt photos are somehow punished more than sexual assaults and rapes.

Sure there are laws against rapes etc, but they are rarely if ever enforced.

Or CGI stuff - and some of that stuff is pretty realistic... or so I hear.

All a guy has to do is polish his black shoes to military shine polished enough so you can see your reflection, then just go and stand near the gal...

Spit and polish like when I was in the navy. But not many men wear those type of shoes anymore.

Disturbing the public peace? Why not call it with its real name: sexual harassment? And, are the police ok with it?

He neither dares to admit what he did.

Schoolgirl fetish and over-sexualization of young girls is really a plague in Japan.

blahblah:

Maybe that’s because in upskirting cases they actually have the evidence. You know, on film.

Would dearly like to know what the wife of the "42-year old administrative official of the Mito Public Prosecutors Office in Ibaraki Prefecture" has to say...

We have seen a lot of girls with short skirts wearing those super shiny Patten Leather shoes lately.

Makes us wonder why, as you can see their panties if wearing them in the reflections.

The shoes start to look bad though if scuffed.

Nope, even if they have ample evidence, the police simply refuses to file in most cases, especially if the rapist is a full-time employee. Several years ago, my friend was only in middle school when she was raped. She managed to escape to the police office with bruises AND physical evidence of penetration, but the case was never allowed to proceed, the police pressured her family to drop the case to protect the rapist. Japanese justice system simply goes above and beyond to protect rapists, it is as if it is a badge of honor for the guys.

If you have noticed, almost all rape cases that managed to move to prosecution and the rapist receiving a very light sentence, are generally to unemployed or part-timers. Have you ever seen someone with good social standing receiving any punishment for sexual assaults or rape? I certainly can never find a single case of that.

He was having a mid-life crisis. Twenty years after graduation from university, he is still just an office clerk to a crowd of younger and smarter attorneys.

That being said, he works in the Prosecutors' office. Does anyone on this site believe the Prosecutors will indict him and take him to trial?

Nothing a good ass kicking wouldn't help, pervert pedo jerk!

Totally. It is so weird. What do they expect to see, other than some panties?
