A man arrested for public indecency after he stripped naked and took photos of himself on a JR train in Kanazawa last September was found guilty and given a suspended sentence.
According to the Kanazawa District Court, Masatoshi Komai, 22, who runs a restaurant in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture, undressed on a train bound for Kanazawa and took some photos of himself during the brief stop at Kanazawa Station. The photos went viral on Twitter.
Komai told the court he did it as a prank for his friends, NTV reported.
The presiding judge said: "It was a shameless act and there can be no extenuating circumstances, even if it was a ridiculous prank. It also affected the train service."
However, the judge noted that Komai had shown remorse and sentenced him to six months in prison, suspended for three years.© Japan Today
