18 Comments

Hyogo prefectural police have arrested a 44-year-old man on suspicion of violating the prefecture’s public nuisance ordinance after he allegedly secretly filmed a 12-year-old girl changing clothes at a beach house.

According to police, Koki Matsumura, a self-employed man from Kyoto Prefecture, is accused of inserting a miniature camera inside a changing room and filming the girl at around 1:40 p.m. on Saturday at the beach house in Toyooka City, Hyogo Prefecture, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said the girl’s mother was waiting in front of the changing room when she saw Matsumura insert the mini-camera. 

An employee at the beach house ran after Matsumura, who fled the scene, and managed to detain him at the beach’s parking lot. Voyeuristic images were later found on his camera

This seems quite the norm in Japan

Why did not the mother confront the guy directly when he walked up to the wall of the changing room with an obvious peephole in it? Who made the peephole is my question? The staff of various genetic differences?

The Lolita complex in Japan is ongoing…

Odd. Someone professes to know more about the crime & scene that is conveyed in the article?

“confront the guy directly when he walked up to the wall of the changing room with an obvious peephole in it? Who made the peephole is my question?” -

None of those speculative ‘details[?]’ are featured in this article above.

Good on the employee for catching this perv.

I would advise such people to use the free porn websites on the internet. Moreover ,buy the new cryptocurrency 'Porn rocket', that it is unbelievably cheap now, so they can upgrade to a paid website with much more spicy content. Considering that the porn industry is the most dominant worldwide, the meme coin will be hardly affordable a couple years later.

Good that the employee detained this guy, but knowing the outcome of the impending arrest, it is surprising the perpetrator did not put up more of a fight, and allowed himself to be detained.

Great solution. If anything it'll just stimulate them to commit more acts. Not to mention that the porn industry in Japan is run by criminal syndicates, who often trick or 'persuade' young women to essentially be raped on camera-

You are assuming the video was for his personal use. Chances are he was recording it for sale.

Where do you think some of that porn comes from?

Amen! In America, this is the least of what happens. Even "child trafficing" slides under the journalistic radar here in America because there is too much other mayhem to fit it in. The fact that these relatively few instances in Japan make the news at all is proof of their actual scarcity but seem BIG in the eyes of the perpetually naive, or those strange people who come to Japan and do little but criticize their hosts...they're even weirder than this nitwit in the story.

JAPAN’s apathy toward child exploitation is deplorable and contributes vastly to the worldwide problem!

1.40 he was at the beach house, where was he before and what was he filming?

voyeurism and molestation (especially on public transport) is a problem of epic proportions in Japan.

Another reason I did not want to bring up our daughter in Japan.

While acknowledging the global issues of child exploitation @WmBjornson 12:40am you “Amen!”ed a former, problematic post that encouraged people to look away from Japan’s specific issues (the topic of this article) and referred to women’s’ complaints as “Drama”. - Such dismissive condescending and dismissive attitudes about women & children are insidious and, perhaps an aspect of an ingrained culture to which some may not want to be equally associated?

Therefore, JAPAN’s apathy toward child exploitation is deplorable and contributes vastly to the worldwide problem!
