Whilst taking a day off work last week, a 41-year-old government official in konan, Shiga Prefecture, was arrested for trespassing in a women’s changing room at a local leisure facility.
Ryuhei Kameda was dressed as a woman when he was apprehended, but in his defence he told the police, “I know I am a man, but I want to live as a woman.” How this information will affect the bureaucrat’s case is unknown, but Kameda-san may well have gotten away with his changing room misdemeanour had he managed to curtail his cross-dressing activities a little more.
It turns out that before his capture, the 41-year-old had been for a swim. Yet as innocuous as such an activity may sound, rather surprisingly Kameda chose to wear a decidedly un-government like bikini. A decision which eventually led to his downfall, as facility staff were alerted by other users to be on the look out for a ‘strange person’.
Such complaints presumably meaning that the skimpy swimming attire wasn’t especially flattering.
