A reporter from a prominent newspaper in Japan was recently captured on film secretly recording women’s skirts during a train ride in Tokyo’s Yamanote Line.
Local authorities have since arrested 35-year-old reporter Keisuke Masuda of Asahi Shimbun, one of Japan’s leading news outlet, SoraNews24 reports. 
Following his arrest, Masuda confessed to investigators that he has been secretly recording women’s skirts in trains for months, saying that he “couldn’t stop” the urge to do so.
He was caught in the act on Tuesday at around 4:30 p.m. while the train was between Tamachi and Hamamatsucho stations when a fellow passenger noticed him acting suspiciously.

The concerned witness turned out to be a cameraman for Nippon TV (NTV), who immediately took out his camera and focused on the suspect who was also busy with his own video recording.
He then promptly notified authorities by dialing police hotline 110 when he saw the suspect following his victim after she got off the train.
Masuda reportedly halted the pursuit and instead and headed straight back to the office. 
When the police caught up with Masuda, a sports reporter, he was found to be carrying a paper bag containing a turned on a camera with the lens facing upward through the opening.
Soon Japanese netizens weighed in on the odd case of a national newspaper reporter being caught voyeuring by a cameraman for a national broadcaster.
Many could not help but state the obvious irony:
“When you voyeur, so too may you be voyeured. It’s just a fact of life.”
“I wonder if the policeman caught the voyeur who caught the voyeur too.”
“Good, a taste of his own medicine.”
“What a difference pointing the camera up and pointing it sideways makes!”
“The NTV cameraman is the worst selling a secretly recorded video of a fellow voyeur.”
“World, this is Japan.”
“The NTV guy was probably gearing up to voyeur too, but found something better instead.”
“It’s like an ouroboros kind of thing.”

Following the incident, Asahi released a statement they are seriously looking into the matter and will arrive at a decision only after the investigation has concluded and all details are revealed.
