It has been three years since the murder of 20 children waiting for a school bus in Kawasaki City in 28 days.

At the scene, we saw a person mourning the two who died with their flowers in their hands.

On May 28, three years ago, Hanako Kuribayashi (11 at the time), who was in the sixth grade of elementary school, was stabbed one after another by elementary school children and their parents who were waiting for a school bus on the streets of Tama Ward, Kawasaki City. Satoshi Koyama (39 at the time), a staff member of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, died and 18 people were seriously injured.



On the 28th, three years after the incident, a person was seen mourning the two who died, holding hands and holding hands at the scene.



A 39-year-old office worker said, "A recent incident occurred at an elementary school in the United States, and I remembered this incident. I joined hands with the thought that I would never forget it."

A 56-year-old teacher said, "It was a shocking incident. I hope this never happens again."



On the other hand, at the private Caritas Elementary School where the children attended, a mass was held in memory of the two who died, and about 250 children and parents attended in addition to the bereaved family.



Vice-principal Yabun Kaku said, "We have focused on safe school attendance and mental care for children. We will continue to work to ensure safety and security."



The 51-year-old man who caused the incident committed suicide on the spot and was not charged with documents on suspicion of murder.
