Happens all over the world and is almost impossible to prevent the occasional paedophile slipping thru the net.

It happens all overthe world but many countries have a system of checks to make sure anyone who has done this can never work with children or vulnerable adults again, or even go near schools etc.

throw in chemical castration, an ankle monitor and his face plastered in every newspaper and then i'd be a little more satisfied with the punishment.

What a hideous piece of poo! If he did that to my kid, he would beg for a longer sentence, because I would be waiting for him at the gates in 15 years.

Maybe unfair, but I'd never send my child to a nursery school with a male employee in Japan

All classrooms should have windows. Teachers male or female should never be allowed to be alone with a child with a closed door. I hate to say this, but maybe cameras could help.

There needs to be better checks in place. Those advocating violence are not helping matters, either.

How long had he been working there before those with authority allowed him to be alone with children? This should never have happened.

Hopefully the new system of shared information on sex offenders will hinder and protect children in the future. These people are attracted to jobs involving contact with children, obviously some checks should be in place. Not all males working with children are suspicious, and not all females working with children should be.

Spot on. The overwhelming majority of men working with children are not paedophiles and/or predators. Not all women are 100% safe, the number of female paedophiles and predators getting convicted is rising.

Good to see an appropriate sentence for a disgusting person. Off to jail with you!

"He abused his duty to aid the healthy growth of young girls,"

that's one BIG understatement!

I see nothing written here to indicate he had been arrested for doing anything like this before. Do you have more information that we have...?

These pedophiles should get life in prison. There have been a lot of incidents of child rape recently, these men/women likes to prey on helpless and powerless children. I hope karma will all reach them soon.

The Sendai District Court said that from October 2015 to October 2016 Ryota Abe, 27, removed the underwear of 10 girls aged 3 to 6 at the nursery school where he worked, pressed his body against them and filmed the acts with his smartphone

Personally, I think that 15 years is a bit too lenient.  25-30 years should be more appropriate. If not life.

after he serves his 15 years, he will be 42 by the time he gets out and still capable of doing terrible things. I'd say notify all the nursery school/kindergarten that he may never set foot on any of this facilities and do more damage.

See, its creatures like him who give men like me a bad image when I say "I love kids! They're so cute!" I work with kids and was told "All male teachers must maintain an arms length distance from all children!". So we are looked at as as if we were pedos because of this.......sicko. I hope that he is exploited all over the news and all his info is everywhere so he can not get a job working around kids or children when he gets out of prison.

Come to think of it my current company, which has a cram school division for older kids and an eikaiwa for little kids, has BOTH security cameras (with screens quite visible in the main office/waiting room area, where some staff are always present) and windows on all classrooms. It's a company-wide safety standard. More schools and childcare centers should equip classrooms this way I think.
