A religious group official being sought over the vandalism of a shrine in Chiba Prefecture may have stayed at an inn near a temple in Nara Prefecture that suffered similar damage, it has emerged.

Police have obtained an arrest warrant for the 52-year-old official, who resides in the United States, on suspicion of vandalizing Katori Shrine in Chiba Prefecture by sprinkling about an oily liquid.

Sources said that a man resembling a suspicious person who was captured on security camera footage on March 28 at Hasedera temple in Sakurai, Nara Prefecture, where similar damage occurred, stayed at the inn near the temple the same evening. The guest described himself as a doctor living in New York, and used the same name as the person being sought by police in the arrest warrant.

"He was a normal person, there wasn't anything strange about him," an inn official said. "I thought he had returned from America to Japan and had come to relax here."

At Hasedera temple, a liquid was splashed over the main temple building (a national treasure), and an eleven-faced Goddess of Mercy statue (an important cultural property). Prefectural police investigators said that a suspicious man wearing a hooded top and holding a camera was captured on security camera footage at the temple on March 28.

Police have an arrest warrant for the founder of a religious group with dozens of followers who they believe is behind a campaign of vandalism at historic sites across Japan.
Numerous temples and shrines have been defaced with an oily liquid that was apparently part of a bizarre religious "purifying" ritual.
The suspect, a medical doctor, started the group in Tokyo but resides in the United States. Police plan to talk to him when he returns to Japan.
The man is aged 52 and has not been named.
"I want to purify the temples and shrines with oil in order to liberate the souls of the Japanese from old customs," the man reportedly told his followers.
The arrest warrant, issued on suspicion of vandalizing a building, was obtained by the Chiba prefectural police after the historic Katori Jingu shrine in Katori, Chiba Prefecture, was defaced.
Police in other areas of Japan are now looking into whether the man is also responsible for similar acts of vandalism at other historic sites in Japan, including some that are on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Police began their investigation after a security camera recorded footage of the man defacing the Katori Jingu shrine in late March.

The man was born in Tokyo and established a religious organization that is purportedly based on Christianity, according to sources. The group is based in Tokyo and boasts about 100 members, mainly in the capital and Osaka.

The man began telling his congregation about his efforts to purify castles and shrines in the Hokuriku, Chugoku, Shikoku and Kyushu regions from around 2011, said police sources.

Police are aware of the man's comments at such religious gatherings.

Various temples and shrines in Japan began reporting the damage to structures from an oily liquid earlier this year. In February, the Nijo Castle in Kyoto, a World Heritage site, reported acts of vandalism involving an oily liquid at 19 spots in the castle grounds.

Since March other historic sites that have been targeted include Toji temple in Kyoto, Todaiji temple in Nara Prefecture and Naritasan Shinshoji temple in Chiba Prefecture.

According to police, such defacing incidents have been confirmed at 48 locations in 16 prefectures around Japan as of May 18.

Police to arrest New York man over vandalism at Japan shrines

CHIBA – Police are set to arrest a Japanese man living in New York on suspicion of vandalizing a Chiba shrine with an oily liquid, police sources said Monday.

The 52-year-old man, who claims to be the founder of a religious body, is suspected of sprinkling the oily substance at Katori Shrine in Chiba Prefecture in late March and could be linked to numerous other cases of vandalism at shrines and temples nationwide, the sources said.

The shrine is among 48 cultural and religious sites, some of them World Heritage sites, in 16 prefectures that have been vandalized with an oily liquid in recent months.

Video footage that has been posted online, apparently by the man’s religious group, shows him speaking before his followers, saying he has sprinkled oil at temples and shrines in an effort to “purify” the sites. It also shows him saying he has visited over 100 sites to “fight the devil.”

A woman at the group’s rented office in central Tokyo confirmed the man is a practitioner, but she said he is usually in New York and his last visit to Japan was in January.

Vandalized sites include Todaiji Temple in Nara Prefecture, Toji Temple and Nijo Castle in Kyoto, and Naritasan Shinshoji Temple in Chiba Prefecture.

Footage from security cameras at Katori Shrine and Naritasan Shinshoji Temple, as well as a temple in Nara Prefecture, show a person who appears to be the man at those sites the same day they were hit by vandalism, according to investigators.

The National Police Agency had instructed police throughout the country to enhance patrols, while investigators continued examining the security camera footage and the liquid used during the vandalism attempts.

Many temples and shrines tightened security following reports of the vandalism, and even if an arrest is made, some said they will still keep a vigilant watch to prevent copycat crimes.
