37 Comments

A man was arrested for trespassing Sunday afternoon after he entered the women's toilet at JR Moji Station in Kita-Kyushu City. Hiroshima resident Akimichi Kawamura, 44, was wearing white boots, a miniskirt and shoulder-length black wig, when he was arrested.

He was quoted by police as saying that he liked to go out dressed as a woman, but that he couldn't enter the men's toilet because of the way he was dressed.

According to police, they received a call from a woman reporting that a strange person had entered the women's toilet at JR Moji Station. Kawamura told police he had dressed as a woman before setting out on a train trip, and was using the toilet before returning home.

Police say he could be recognized as a man immediately.

There are so many toilets in parks that are unisex, women have to walk past the urinals to get to the stalls, I don't see what the problem is.

There are also goes who do the same thing to take naughty photos and videos. If you don't want to be seen as a pervert while crossdressing then go to stores and restaurants that have only one individual toilet that everyone shares. Is my last statement an oxymoron?

Not to mention all the women I do see going into men's bathrooms in really busy station so they don't have to wait in line for the women's. Next time I will report them and see if the woman is arrested.

"all the women"?! I've lived in Japan for more than ten years and I have never-- never-- seen that happen. In this culture, I question whether you have either.

Considering the number of times I have seen it happen, I question whether you have actually lived in Japan at all, let alone 10 years!

And yes, it would be amusing to see if a woman was arrested when reported for using the guys' restroom. I suppose you could really stir things up and take snapshots of her while she was there. If she complained, you could simply point out that it was 'evidence.' :)

I use the woman's toilet at MacDonalds if the mens is busy and the ladies is free.

You should change your screenname. Bokudayo took care of the rest for me.

That's so hypocritical. There are toilets for male in many "ladies" in Japan, so little boys go with their Mums.

Anyway, that makes what ? I understand we don't want men on ladies's side of the gym changing room, sento, open showers... but for station toilets, there are doors for each individual seat.

I use handicap toilets as they are the best in the world.

Ive seen many women in the mens room, but they are working, and always fat or old, or both.

What a coincidence, I was in a train station in Yokohama just two days ago and a woman entered and did her business (not the first time for me). No one complained and she went about her way. I assume someone who had only been in Japan for one day that particular day is one up on you! No pun intended.

Behold the crack investigative genius of the j-cops.

Those boys in blue don't miss anything.

So, when one of these little lady dunny cleaners is standing next to me while I am taking a leak I could have her arrested? What is the difference? If he was loitering then fair enough, but if he only went in for a pee I don't see what the problem is.

everytime I have used the toilets at tokyodisneyland there have been women in there since the women's toilet has a 30 minute queue. I'll call the police next time

Maybe he left the seat up and that pissed off the next one to use the stall.

Was he a for-reals cross dresser or one of those male-maids in Akihabara still "in-role"... oh, wait.

This geezer's a bloke. He should've used the Gents.

Knowing there's a bloke in the next cubicle makes ladies edgy. What's he up to in there?

Arresting a guy for this? Come on! If he just went in to pee, what's the big deal? If he had been caught peeping in the stalls or something, then I can understand a woman doing something about it. Just because he could be 'recognized as a man immediately' doesn't mean he is some kind of pig. He could just be a poor cross-dresser. I guess the message is: if you wanna get away with this, be sure to apply make-up carefully and shave your legs first!

[I use the woman's toilet at MacDonalds if the mens is busy and the ladies is free.] -- So do I bobba. There is no sex on a single toilet as there are never any women in them when I go in them. And they usually get the washlet so that's a factor in my choice as well in single toilets.

Goddog, good one. He probably left "spillage" on the rim of the bowl to boot, which would have pissed her off even more.

Popped into the ladies facilities by mistake once, closed the door and sat down. Did not know I was in the wrong place until I heard female voices... I was scared as I had a feeling that if they saw me, the cops would have been called and my name would have been all over JT. LOL

Anyway, I did my business, waited for the voices to leave and dashed out.

I think it is a bit different using a train station toilet that has many stalls and just using one room as they are at Macs. The only "females" I've seen heading into the men's room are the yankis or the "garus" at it has always been during fireworks when the women's line is very long. If they want to take the chance fine. However, there have been many women raped at toilets in train stations here so I think women are a little more concerned when they see some crossdressing guy head to the lady's room than they would be say a same sex toilet in the park - I stay clear away from them as they are disgusting.

If women do commonly use the men's toilet, as many posters have indicated, then why the heck didn't the guy just use the men's room? So he was dressed like a woman; most women dress like women, and that doesn't stop them popping into the men's room.

Still, like others have said, if all he had to do was use the bathroom and then get out then I don't see what the big deal is. Yes it's awkward and I wouldn't care for it if I were in the bathroom at the time, but I don't think he should be arrested over it.

"Akimichi Kawamura, 44, was wearing white boots, a miniskirt..."

I saw a girl wearing white boots and a miniskirt just the other day, and she looked dynamite!

"... and shoulder-length black wig... Police say he could be recognized as a man immediately"

He should have worn a brown wig. Few Japanese females have black hair these days.

One solution would be to have 3 washrooms instead of just two. One for men, one for ladies and one for all those somewhere in between.

This is so wrong. I have been in train station bathrooms so many times where there is a male janitor cleaning up in the womens bathroom, or have walked into a bathroom to find the urinal with a man peeing in it blocking my way to the womans toilet. I didn't think Japanese people were so squeamish.

This "man" should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. This is a totally disgraceful, outrageous atrocity in these modern times.

I'm female and I have gone to the mens room with or without guys around. Girls take too long to use the bathroom especially in J-land. They have to change their outfit to the one they just bought from the store. So stooooopid!

When I gotta go, I gotta go.

Poor guy,he just wanted to drain the weasel on his way home.

Mark up another one for STUPID. I have seen lots of men in woman's toilets and women use male toilets. It is harder on the men since they just have their back to the women. The women are in stalls. Frack look around Japan and see how many urinals are visible from outside of the toilet room. There is a urinal at a Okinawa bus stop that is out in the open. You can see it from the street. Chalk up another for the J girls, bloody dim whits they give Japanese women hood a bad name. Those J cops make the force look stupid.
