Months-long investigation ends with police officers taking Shogun Kigawa into custody after he fails to resist his fetish for peeing women.

At roughly 10 in the morning on December 10, a woman entered the restroom of a convenience store in the city of Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture. She entered the stall and prepared to do her business, but the tranquility of her porcelain-seated reverie was shattered when a smartphone suddenly appeared from beneath the stall’s door, with a man’s hand gripping it and the camera lens pointed at her.

While the peeping Tom was not apprehended at the scene, officers from the Sagamihara Minami Precinct have announced that the perpetrator has been identified and taken into custody. After examining security camera footage, their investigation eventually led them to a 37-year-old resident of the neighboring city of Yamato, who was formally arrested on April 16.

The man’s name? Shogun Kigawa, written with the exact same kanji characters, 将軍, used to refer to the military rulers of feudal Japan who ruled the country for centuries.

While there’s been a trend of Japanese parents giving their babies flowery or flashy names in recent years, “Shogun” is an extremely rare choice, especially for the era in which the man was born, with many online commenters saying they’ve never met anyone named “Shogun” in their entire lives.

Following his arrest, Shogun Kigawa admitted to the charges. History buffs will be glad to know that there was never an actual shogun from a clan named Kigawa, and so the legacy of Japan’s samurai lords remains free from modern sexual scandal, which is more than we can say for TV action hero Kamen Rider.
