Police have arrested a teacher for filming himself raping some 70 schoolgirls, who had apparently been selling their bodies online only to be tricked into meeting him so he could drug them for sex.

According to investigators, the 56-year-old Tokyo middle school teacher was found to be in possession of 150 DVDs, 100 of which contained recordings he had made of himself sexually assaulting young women. Police estimate at least 70 of the films involved minors, as they helpfully came with school names and years.

In addition, searches of his phone and PC turned up 1800 email addresses thought to be connected to the case.

Police finally cottoned on to his antics when the case of a 15-year-old girl he had drugged and ravished in a Shinjuku hotel came to light.

His modus operandi was apparently simply to pick up girls prostituting themselves on deaikei sites – in the case which came to light, he introduced himself with “I’m Hiro, 32. Won’t you meet me in the city for ¥80,000?”

He then asked the girl to send him pictures of herself topless. She sent him the pictures, but declined to meet him. Over the next 2 days he sent approximately 100 mails demanding she meet him and threatening to make public the pictures she had sent him.

She finally caved and agreed to meet him, which led to her being drugged and assaulted.

Still she did not report the matter – only when she had returned home only to find him demanding to meet her again whilst threatening to come to her house or tell her school did she finally opt to report the matter to police.

The fact that most of his victims were schoolgirls selling their bodies online likely contributed to their reluctance to report the incidents – although such prostitutes are treated as victims rather than criminals, even reporting unsuccessful efforts at blackmail would lead to police or parents investigating what the girl was doing on such a site in the first place, leading to counselling, shame and a loss of future income.

It is not clear whether he actually paid any of his later victims for their services as agreed, although if he was offering ¥80,000 (well over the going rate) it seems unlikely, and the extremely high figure likely attracted particularly gullible or greedy girls who could ill afford the attention, to say nothing of his efforts to harass and blackmail them.

He admits the charges:

“I’ve been using child prostitutes for the past 10 years. 4 or 5 years ago I started targeting 14 or 15-year-old girls who do as they’re told, and blackmailing them. Seeing the ‘other face’ of girls the same age as my pupils was especially arousing. I would enjoy watching the DVDs later.”

Police are investigating the full scope of his activities.

The local school board apologised for employing a serial child rapist as a teacher, calling it “exceedingly regrettable”:

    Apparantly, every minor girl in Tokyo sells their body for money.

    Your conclusion does not make logical sense.

    Perhaps looking at the words "under age" will help you modify your conclusion... In any sense, a child voluntarily having under-aged sex should not be dealt with in a legal framework. Perhaps better parenting...

    your the idiot here, nobody said anything about criminalizing being a rape victim, rape and prostitution are not the same. and they wouldn't be in such potentially dangerous situations if they didn't start trying to sell themselves in the first place.

    the police letting these dumb whores off with not so much as slap on the wrist is essentially sending a message to all the kids in schools, saying "selling yourself is ok!! its only illegal for men, go sell yourself to dirty old men if you want a new purse!!"

    nowhere in any of the above posts did they mention jail sentences for minors which is illegal in the first place, house arrest or possibly girls juvenile hall for repeat offenders would be the worst they'd get.

    that you assume these things without any evidence at all clearly tells me how much of an idiot you are. I suggest you wash the sound out of your vag and actually try reading the posts before making wild accusations.

    I remember hearing how even though Japan has a low rape rate, the low reporting rates skew the stats a lot and it's actually really high.

    I used to view it with suspicion but after hearing absurd cases like this from Japan time after time I have to wonder if it's true...

    This actually is the case everywhere. However it is known that the Japanese are very unlikely to report cases of crime than other countries. Duely to fear that they themselves will be in hot water should they do so. It's pretty much a general Asian thing when look at it.

    But that's where the question begins. What reasons would the so called "victims" have, to not report crimes? Statistics are great for appoximations when it comes to society. But that's it.

    Take for example here in the UK. Recorded cases of rape skyrocketed a decade ago. But many cases became false accusations when they were actually looked into. Now whenever a case of rape surfaces, it's looked with suspicion. Many women/girls are now afraid that they themselves was the catalyst that led to the rape in the first place because...well they probably was. Femnazi's will say otherwise obviously.

    It is something that must be looked at honestly in the near future to truly balance the idea of sex crimes. I've said it before here, but women having no ability to take responsibility for what happened to them should they be raped is not actually a good thing. They lose all ability to take control of their lives and they suddenly become terrified that it can happen anytime, anywhere, and can cease to function. To treat a rape victim as completely unable to recognize if they could have done something differently to prevent it, like locked a door, walked with a friend, gone a different route through a neighborhood that isn't so bad, is to remove their power completely and truly put them in a state of 'having been raped' rather than 'forced to have sex.' They are completely different, because the former is a state of victimhood. The latter is an event that has no meaning unless your mind adds meaning to it. Things like the above, if women are counseled to recognize things that they could control in the scenario, they can actually take responsibility without BLAMING themselves, which is the key. Blaming yourself is useless, recognizing how to learn from something is where you gain power from it, no matter what it is.

    That is in the case of random street assaults and the like. In terms of situations where a woman changes her mind afterward, that really must be given a completely different name. Because it is not, and is never rape. If a guy can convince a girl to sleep with him and she regrets it later, it's her mistake, not his. He was just a good salesman and gave her what he promised. He sold the idea that she would benefit from having sex with him. Obviously if she demanded protection and he didn't use it, he should take some responsibility, but that's still not rape. It cannot and should not ever be, because then even consensual sex can become rape any damn time a woman pleases, and that's beyond ridiculous.

    I think there is a marked difference between a woman who is assaulted coming back from a convenience store and schoolgirls on a dating chatroom looking for quick money to get a Louis Vitton handbag.

    If your going to play the Kogal game you had better do it with both eyes open considering the freaks that are out there.Drugged and raped could have easily been drugged, raped and somebodies freezer supply of donkatsu.

    Recently, where I live a girl vanished off the face of the earth after partying with her friends at a local bar. One of my girlfriends commented that "Nothing good ever seems to happen when your on your own at 3AM". Guess she's right.

    These girls in some part have to bear the burden of responsibility for what happened to them because they alone placed themselves in that position.

    As for the perpetrator, just a total piece of shit and deserves whatever's coming to him.

    I don't entirely disagree with the point of view that it could be seen as one sided, but any usage of exploitation or using a person as a slave of profit using blackmailing is often under the umbrella of sex crimes (duh. it's self explanatory) and other looser definition of rape.

    Either way, the man should be put away for a long time for sexual crimes regarding exploitation.

    There's just something more innately sinister to me in regarding sexual exploitation.. it's kind of beyond the 'rape' argument to me. Though that said, no telling how many of those girls felt violated and potentially had their lives ruined further (albeit it's partially their fault for being gullible and selling their bodies to begin with).

    I just hope there's room for salvation and that they don't get paraded around in public or something.

    "Sorry to disagree, the gurls in that case have their share of guilt"

    Sorry to disagree, but that's just plain bullshit.

    Vote me down all you want, but the feminists actually have it right in this regard. Sure, those girls have no one but themselves to blame for selling their bodies (considering Japan is wealthy and there simply isn't any actual economic need for it), but even if you insist on a connection, it's only orthogonal at best. It was the teacher who decided to assault them. He could have decided to target them simply because they're pretty. What the girls did doesn't matter. HE committed the crime. Continue that line of thought, and women wearing miniskirts will become a valid defense for rapists.

    You're free to do whatever you want as long as you don't infringe on other people's rights. The girls harmed no one but themselves by doing enjou kousai. It's absolutely not their fault that some teacher was turned on by it, and it shouldn't be their problem either.

    If that is how you think, why don't you move to some arab shithole and enjoy your walking tents?

    "The girls themselves were infringing on the rights of others as well by prostituting themselves."

    Where the fuck do you get that idea from? Prostitution does not automatically equate to rape, and selling their own bodies voluntarily hardly infringes upon anyone.

    What it boils down to is this: were they careless, endangering themselves even? Yes, they were. Do they share the guilt? No. Same goes for that girl that vanished where you live.

    Sharing responsibility for what happened to them in a legal sense would mean letting the teacher off lighter. I don't know if you meant it in legal sense or in a "personal" kind of way. I guess it would be quite unnatural for just about any human not to reflect on what happened and concluding that they did some unnecessary or stupid things. But that is their personal matter and no one else's business. If you're implying legal responsibility though, then I just can't agree with you.

    @gaelstrom (HouseLife):
    "The girls themselves were infringing on the rights of others as well by prostituting themselves"

    ^ I'm really interested in this one. Care to elaborate?

    As for them having committed a crime: technically, no. As Artefact wrote, Japanese law treats them as victims (an approach I wholeheartedly agree with - but that's a separate argument).
    From an ethical viewpoint I don't see their crime either. But maybe that's just me living in central Europe, a part of the developed world that hasn't been brainwashed into thinking prostitution should be banned. In fact, it's explicitly legal here, prostitutes are protected by the police and they're even represented by our major service sector unions...

    @ Shuu

    The girls themselves were infringing on the rights of others as well by prostituting themselves. Don't get my wrong, this guy escalating consensual sex into assault and rape is of course a crime, but anyone who has the nerve to not recognize these girls as also having committed a crime as well is a little naive. Or one-sided.

    Personally I don't care what anyone thinks. If the girls wish to have sex and make money, let them. In fact let them charge extra for ugly men if they want. It's a service like any other, been here since time immemorial. If they choose to do this, via stupidity, desperation, or even just lust, I don't care. I'm so sick and tired across the board of being told to be afraid of sex unless it follows a specific set of rules or that it's 'wrong and you should be punished' that I really believe to my core that the vast majority of sexual crimes are inflicted on peoples' perceptions by these rules. Trying to control the most uncontrollable nature of the human mind will lead to... guess what... chaos. The stuff this guy did is the chaos of human sexuality. If people want it to stop, stop forbidding so much of human sexuality and you'll watch so many bad things stop happening.

    Prostitution is illegal there as far as I'm aware. Simple as that. Child prostitution is as well. They are victims in name only though, because in the vast majority of these cases, there is no pimp involved. If they were under duress to do this, then yes, they'd be victims, but many, MANY of them are not. By the way, this isn't relating to this article in particular, I'm speaking generally. This man did most definitely escalate to rape.

    You are also forgetting the penchant for the world to think of anyone under a certain age (generally 18 with some variance) is somehow infallible and shouldn't be held accountable for their mistakes. Many of these girls are just doing it for money for expensive stuff, but perhaps it's turning into more of a survival. I won't pretend a generalization can handle all of them, so even assuming they are doing this for money to survive, it's still supposed to be illegal.

    Either way, whether I agree or not, it is a crime. In my opinion, prostitution should be completely legal, given health benefits, representation, and be taxed as a service for the economy. Basically what you described. As far as I'm concerned, it's nothing short of backwards, redneck, Christian idiocy to pretend otherwise

    The general fear of sex, especially with younger teens, is nothing short of brainwashing now. Laws exist for their protection considering they are not yet fully able to perceive consequence in many cases, yet it treats them as objects with no mind of their own. A hilarious irony in the fact that the laws treat them as objects, while the persons committing the 'crime' are the ones recognizing them as human beings (Give or take the men who think of women like objects, but let's leave them out of this). It doesn't change the fact that currently it's illegal there, and only the Johns are being punished (not sure if Europeans know that term, 'Johns' are what the prostitution customers are referred to in US). Japan claims it's an epidemic, and yet do nothing to stop the source. Therefore, they are hypocrites, idiots, or a combination of the two.

    Those are high school prostitutes we are talking about. What do you think would happen if their parents found out?
    I imagine that the results would be the same regardless of where it occurred.

    Or do you think there are no rapists who use shame to silence their victims where you live?

    Shame can be used much more effectively in an environment that punishes the victim. Japan may not punish the victim legally, however they do attach very condemning social stigma to them. Thus their victims can be easily coerced into staying silent.
