29 Comments

Police in Tokyo have arrested an unemployed 23-year-old man for exposing himself to a 7-year-old girl on a road in Adachi Ward.

According to police, on Dec 5, Atsushi Kainuma approached the girl as she was returning home from school and called out to her just before he suddenly exposed himself, TBS reported Tuesday.

After returning home, the girl told her mother what had happened and police were notified. During a preliminary sweep of the neighborhood, officers found Kainuma quickly after spotting him acting suspiciously.

Following his arrest, Kainuma was quoted as saying that he had committed the act to "satisfy his sexual urge," police said.

As Ive said before, is it not time Japan had a sex offenders register like we have in the UK? the offender has to be on the list for as long as the courts hand down, this list informs the police who is on the list and where they are living.

Wouldn't have done a thing to prevent this incident from happening.

A coward flasher who calls out to his victims to gain their confidence. I think our children have a right to know about the people who might hurt them.

How come there are frequent reports of such unacceptable exploitation of the children taking place in Japan! Maybe the Japanese government should rethink and introduce more stringent laws to solve the problem!

Glad they caught the guy and hope they nail him to the wall. As for the little girl, I hope she is not traumatized and can overcome this easily. I'll never understand the 'urges' of some people.

There are many crazy sick stupid people around the world ... and this hopeless Japanese man is no exception Thanks god the little girl was safe.

On at least two occasions I've been to onsens where men brought their (approx.) 7-year-old daughters in with them. It made me feel uncomfortable but no one else seemed to blink an eye. To this day I'm not sure what to make of it. I know that fathers here in Japan sometimes bathe with their daughters well into elementary school, but this was a public onsen. Any thoughts?

Moderator, do you know where in Adachi-ku this occurred?

I don't want to defend the man's inability to control his urges, but if she's 7, then I think the main trauma to the girl would be everyone telling her what a victim she was. She was probably a little surprised and amused at the whole affair.

Yet another nutter.

OMG! Terrified and frightened more like! I was scared when it happened to me as an adult! My friends daughter (aged 9 at the time) was also very upset when it happened to her. What a totally idiotic thing to say!

It's called taking your 7-year-old daughter to the local bath house. Nothing strange and totally normal in Japan. Maybe it's one of the few countries you can actually do this.

Kazuaki Shimazaki & DaDude: Agreed. My wife had this happen to her when she was 11 and she turned out fine. She jokes about the incident now. Maybe that's why she's so thick-skinned now...

I think any trauma would be dependent on a couple of things: whether she has any brothers and has already seen what the thing looks like in its various states, and whether she has already been indoctrinated in the horrors that can happen to an underage girl by an adult man.

And now he is off the streets, bye bye Mr. Kainuma.

Yes -- Happened to my wife when she was young as well. Twice I believe. Both times on a train. Not at all uncommon in Japan. I think it's more common here (Tokyo) as most strangers won't get involved if they witness something. I wouldn't be surprised to find out Mr. Kainuma had been doing this for some before he was caught.

Good that the kid told her father and that the father acted, give him a chastity belt!

But on the other hand, those trying to minimalize should try to REALLY put themselves in her shoes and picture a big dude three times their weight and twice their height waving his unmentionables at them on a road with no other people around.

Also recall the recent outcome of the 6-yo or 7-yo girl walking home later found in pieces, which event the current subject may have been warned against.

And that the chances of a kid this young in this situation versus an adult basically depend on luck (in happenstance of the particular opponent's ultimate goal and of the possibility of random bystanders chancing on the scene).

Nothing she hasn't seen before bathing with daddy

Perverts like this cannot be cured. Perverts like this man are not going to go away, people need to take proper care of their young children to protect them from these freaks.

some clown has thumbed me down! why? do you find its ok to leave perverts to roam around unchallenged, unpunished, would you feel that its ok for your son or daughter to be "touched" what part about naming and shaming someone. AND to keep track of them!
