It has been confirmed that the Mayor of Kisoji, Hisao Kojima, from Gifu Prefecture’s Ginan Town, has admitted to sexual harassment and indicated his intention to resign. A third-party committee in the town reported that the mayor himself had been found guilty of as many as 99 cases of sexual harassment. The investigation was conducted in response to allegations of sexual harassment from female town employees.

After the problem came to light, the town’s third-party committee conducted a detailed investigation and confirmed the fact that the mayor had committed acts of sexual harassment. As a result, Mayor Kojima apologized to the townspeople for causing them trouble and submitted his resignation on the morning of the 29th.
