The Tokyo Metropolitan Police this week launched a campaign to eradicate molesting and lewd behavior on trains and at stations.
Helping police kick off the campaign at Shibuya Station on Monday were Ultra-man and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police mascot Pipo-kun.
Police urged young people to be alert to train molesters and not be afraid to speak up or call for help if they see someone being molested. Police also advised women to carry crime-prevention buzzers with them.
Other events are being held at stations such as Shinjuku, and Toyocho in Koto Ward. The campaign will continue until Friday.
According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, there were more than 2,300 reported cases of molesting and lewd conduct on trains or at stations in Tokyo last year.© Japan Today
