Police in Kyoto have arrested a 47-year-old doctor on suspicion of violating the prefecture’s public nuisance ordinance after he allegedly took voyeuristic images of a junior high school girl during a medical examination in Okayama last year.
According to police, Daisuke Fujiwara, who was arrested on Monday, was giving check-ups at a junior high school nurse’s office on May 18, 2021, Kyodo News reported. Between 1:30 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. that day, he voyeuristically filmed five second-year female students in their underwear, using a pen with a miniature camera built into it.
Fujiwara is the director of a privately-operated hospital in Kyoto. The Okayama City Board of Education commissioned him to conduct medical exams at elementary and junior high schools approximately a decade ago.
While being questioned over a separate voyeurism incident in Kyoto in May, officers found Fujiwara’s pen-type camera that contained unlawful images of about 40 students.
Police said Fujiwara has admitted to the allegations and quoted him as saying he filmed the girls because it gave him a thrill.© Japan Today
