A man convicted of killing seven people in a truck ramming and stabbing rampage in Tokyo’s popular Akihabara electronics district in 2008 was executed on July 26, 2022. Justice Minister Yoshihisa Furukawa said Tomohiro Kato had undertaken meticulous preparation for the attack and displayed a strong intent to kill. Kato went on the stabbing spree on June 8, 2008, telling police that he had come to Akihabara to kill people and that it didn't matter who he’d kill. The attack was Japan’s worst mass killing in seven years and Kato was sentenced to death in 2011, a decision upheld by Japan’s top court in 2015.
