Wakayama man arrested for attaching underwear to cars of women he doesn’t know


A man in Wakayama Prefecture stands accused of violating the obscene behavior clause of the prefecture’s nuisance prevention order.

The suspect is 48-year-old Yoshikazu Kabe who works in the transportation business in Wakayama City. According to police, during the late night of March 3 and morning of March 4, he allegedly affixed several pairs of women’s underwear to the vehicle of a 22-year-old woman, while the car sat in a parking lot in the same city.

Also according to the police, the man admitted to the crime but also said that he had no relationship with the woman whatsoever. Furthermore, there were at least four similar incidents in the same city between March and May of this year that authorities feel may be connected.

Other countries have incest, rapes, gang rapes and Japan has some ojisan making the world a happier brighter place (in his eyes) by festooning cars with underwear.

I think I prefer the Japanese version.

It's far less traumatic.

I love this headline. Makes it seem like it would have been ok if the cars belonged to women he knew.

Seemingly harmless, until this escalates and the perv turns out to be a real sexually deprived psycho. Besides, people would not be so amused if it happened to their own girlfriends, wives, family.

He has a boring life maybe and wanted some excitement ?

This reminds me of Roger's PROFANISAURUS REX entry: quumf v. To sit in waiting outside a public library and take the opportunity to sniff ladies' bicycle seats as soon as possible after their owner has dismounted and gone inside.

My laugh of the day. Both the story and all the comments. Very amusing. But yeah, not a serious crime so I think that's a good thing.

Just curious, but how do you go about affixing panties to a car? With glue? Scotch tape? Seems like some skills are needed to turn a car into a pantymobile.

Handy in these humid days

You can just hang them from the mirrors, or attach them to the wipers.

So if he knew them he wouldn't be arrested??!

He does not remember that he fixed the panties to the car ... therefore he should not be arrested .

accused of violating the obscene behavior

I must try to be more careful when reading... I read : "obscure"... (which was probably closer to this guy's intentions...)

New name for undies on a car SPEEDOS!

The high school kids in DH's home town used to like to put condoms on cars. They stick to a wet car, so whenever there was a light rain...

Was the underwear at least the right size?

Great headline.

Why did he use women's underwear though? Surely he'd channel his inner high-school doofus better by tacking on his OWN underwear...

So if he knew them he wouldn't be arrested??!

@Jason Santana I will explain. If he knew them, that would raise the question of whether he had permission or if it was an ongoing series of pranks between the two, and things like that, even if unlikely, consider other cases.

Saying he did not know the victim only emphases the fact that he did not have permission and this was not some prank between friends.

In short, the information guides us to more likely conclusions.

He "works in the transportation business" and "affixed several pairs of women’s underwear to the vehicle" - get him for trafficking lingerie?

Now I've heard it all. Japan is so full of these quirky crimes! I was surprised no mention of being drunk or being perpetrated by a j cop.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Ahahahaha. That's Japan for ya. Should not have been arrested though.

Just when I thought I'd heard them all. Japan's seemingly endless list of bizarre, ultra-niche perversions never ceases to amaze me. What is it about this country that makes it such a hotbed of off-the-wall, "only-in-Japan" erotic obsessions?

Anyway, file this one under the attaching-panties-to-cars-of-unsuspecting-women fetish.

Another hentai He wants to see the car with underwear. Disgusting!

"he allegedly affixed several pairs of women’s underwear to the vehicle of a 22-year-old woman, while the car sat in a parking lot in the same city....Also according to the police, the man admitted to the crime"

A crime, eh? Elsewhere this would be considered a practical joke, especially if it was done on the evening of October 30, heh heh

To be honest I find it rather cute nor should he have been arrested.

Heck I once hung a Peach John bag of my wifes Mini's side mirror. Had a great lacy baby-doll in it.

He did it because he got boring.

Maybe the underwear was used and dirty therefore it would have been a sh!tty crime.

The Japanese Perv's imagination knows NO bounds.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Bizarre but harmless. What was the charge?

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

In English, "several pairs of women's underwear" does not make grammatical sense. Women's underwear includes things like brassieres, slips, girdles, chemises amd so on. Why not just say "several pairs of panties" or "several pairs of knickers" if that's what's meant? Too scandalous for JT?
