TOKYO (TR) – In an effort to eradicate molestation incidents and illicit filming on trains, a member of an idol participated in an event near JR Shibuya Station on Monday, reports TV Asahi (June 3).

Held at Shibuya Mark City, the event was sponsored by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. Nao Kosaka of  group Hinatazaka46 conveyed three ways for persons to not become victims of a chikan (groper) or a person taking tosatsu (voyeur) photographs.

“Watch out for crowded train cars at boarding places,” she said. “Be wary of suspicious people around you. And change commuting times and trains used.”
