Voyeurism case involving former cram school instructor sent to prosecutors


A 21-year-old former instructor at a major Tokyo cram school specializing in junior high school entrance exams, has been sent to the public prosecutor’s office after being charged with voyeuristically filming two of his female elementary school students’ underwear.

According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s Office for Youth Affairs, Sosho Mori, who taught at Yotsuya Otsuka cram school, also faces additional charges of violating the nuisance-prevention ordinance by filming three other female students at the school in Hino City, Kyodo News reported.

According to investigators, Mori was working at the cram school as a full-time employee from April 2022 to August this year. During this time, he allegedly filmed girls’ underwear, using his smartphone.

Police said one of the girls was as young as seven. Mori is also accused of uploading the images online.

It has also been revealed that more elementary school students at the cram school may have been victims of the non-consensual filming. Police said Mori told them he secretly filmed over a dozen girls who were his students.

Mori is also accused of uploading the images online.

Some people still blind to the fact that online sites/porn are the main drivers of this behavior.

There’s not much of a conversation to be had - our children need protection from these sickos. He’s invaded their personal space without any right to do so.

Why does Japan allow such websites and the uploading of images secretly taken of 7 year old girls and their underwear? Is this an example of freedom of speech and non-censorship?

An authoritarian government would clean this up in no time.

As I said before it’s pornography that makes these demonic people even worse and encourages them. I also stated before that many paedophile deviants are attracted to working at these l,aces with easy access to children.

The man needs to be chemically castrated, imprisoned and never allowed near children again.

A sex offenders register is needed right here right now.

Good grief!!! How barbaric! How about bringing back stoning, like in the Old Testament? Nothing like Taliban rule to make a personal point you see

You do know that works almost not at all on an adult male, right? Even if it did, the offender would have to keep taking them.

Disgusting, but glad he was caught at 21 as that sort of behavior will only escalate. Just got to hope he gets blacklisted from working around children in the future.

If this behavior is to change than there needs to be a radical change in the way women are perceived in Japan - I say Japan, as this story takes place here. There are a lot worse out there for sure.

Back to point before the JT censors admonish me - women are still seen for the most part as servants to men. Watch any commercial on the television and the roles that women play are for with a few exceptions catering to and or depending on a man. The social pressure as we speak is to get married and be a good wife, and then mother.

A woman I know when asking for career advice at a prefectural office where she works was told very lovingly, by a retired turned part time prefectural office worker told her that she needs to get married and raise a family. This is happening now, 2023

The second of many parts of the problem, anyone who commits these crimes needs to be punished with serious prison time and a permanent record recording the crime, and prevented from having any contact with children. This is includes groping on a crowded trains or bus or anywhere. Any unwanted touching is a sexual assault.

The problem is that the people responsible for changing the laws are the beneficiaries of the current system and have no desire to make any changes.

Good to see a shift from defense of sexual deviance in Japan to attack.

You clearly misunderstood my pointing out that Japan is safer than almost any country in the world being a defence of sexual predators.

Note that I do defend sexual “deviants” if it’s consensual among all parties.

There is no shortage of these sexual deviants all over the world, there are millions of pornographic sites that feature only young children, and it is alleged that 75% of teens aged 13 to 17 have watched porn sites, now add the adults on to that and the numbers are horrific. But what we must not forget also is that child abuse was going on in the Greek and Roman times and ever since....... What a species of depraved life forms we are.

This man needs a psychiatric evaluation. This is not normal behavior of a young man, only 21 years old.

What makes you think it’s a psychiatric issue and not just someone with antisocial disorder who gave into his urges?

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

No, it is not.

Yes, it is.

Nope. Not even a little.

As the other poster said:

Yes, it is.

This is difficult to confirm. Japans shame culture and institutionalised bullying plays a big part in these incidents going unreported. The same as cases of rape, sexual harassment, power harassment, domestic abuse, etc. etc.
