NHK announcer Takeshige Morimoto was arrested Nov. 14 on suspicion of indecently assaulting a woman on a train, it has been learned.
The 47-year-old, who has worked as a newscaster for NHK’s “Ohayo Nippon” program, was reportedly drunk at the time of the incident, which occurred on a train on the Tokyu Denentoshi Line.
“I don’t remember touching her body,” he was quoted as telling investigators.
Police accuse Morimoto of touching the breasts of a woman in her 20s on a train traveling between Shibuya and Futakotamagawa stations at about 7:50 p.m. on Nov. 14. The woman reportedly yelled out “pervert,” and grabbed Morimoto’s arm, and other passengers held him.
Police said Morimoto had been drinking with colleagues in Shibuya from about noon that day. He was quoted as saying that he got on the train to go home, but his home was in the opposite direction from where the train was headed.

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
