Microsoft Japan Employee Arrested For Fondling A Schoolgirl

A forty-year-old Microsoft employee has been arrested for groping a schoolgirl's breasts on a JR Kobe line train bound for Osaka.

The employee has been identified as Shingo Mihara, an employee of Microsoft Japan's Kansai branch. He apparently put his hand in an opening of the 16-year-old schoolgirl's blouse.

The schoolgirl supposedly caught him red handed and then pulled him from the train at Amagasaki Station. A station employee then turned Mihara over to the police.

Even though Mihara apologized to the girl, he later told police, "I might have come in contact with her body, but I did not touch her breasts."

Osaka was one of the first cities in Japan to create "women-only" train carriages in hopes of reducing the number of gropping incidents on trains.

It is unclear what role Mihara held at Microsoft and whether he worked in Xbox Japan or not. Kotaku is following up with Microsoft regarding this issue and will update this post if the company comments.

    I've not been to Japan, but according to several travel sites those women's only carriages are always packed.

    Unfortunately, the perception is that if you're not one one of those carriages then you're essentially giving permission.

    Statistically, a huge number of women have been groped on the trains over there.

    For all the good things about Japan... it's got some major issues.

    Damn straight.

    WTF Japan? Oh, never mind, here come the apologists, namely Brian Ashcraft.

      where does Brian try and defend a faith, cause or institution. He merely stated what happened.

        Not in this article, I'll grant you that. But he has many many articles apologising for Japans problems.

    Wonder why photos at that angle, accidentaly filmed that while going for the upskirt shots perhaps?

    *wonders if he been playin H games instead of workin*

    I wish there was a better way to commute rather than being herded into a carriage like cattles. -_-

    Groping in public transport happens all around the world not just in Japan, but it has a high percentages of women and men being molested while in peak times in Japan and Korea.

    "pulled him from the train at Amagasaki Station"

    Bahaahha, I love that station, has all these awesome small eatery places that are true to the Japanese spirit.

    I remember going on exchange to Japan and wondering why there were women-only carriages (a bit of culture clash, of course). That was until my teacher explained the situation. Those carriages are only in use during specific hours though. If memory serves me correct, those women-only carriages were in effect from 7PM - Late. Other than that, trains in Japan are still pretty awesome, haha.

    Pictures of the girl and where he touched her breasts please?
