June 7 marks 10 years since the street demon incident in Akihabara, Tokyo, in which seven people were killed and 6 seriously injured. At the intersection at the site, people could be seen handing flowers and putting their hands together.

On June 20, a truck rammed into a pedestrian mall in Akihabara, Tokyo, which was bustling with holidays, hitting passers-by and stabbing them with knives, killing seven people and seriously injuring 6 others.

Former death row inmate Tomohiro Kato, who was 8 years old at the time and was accused of murder and other crimes, was sentenced in July last year.

On the 7th, 10 years after the incident, people could be seen laying flowers and putting their hands together at the intersection at the site.

Shigeru Akiyama (31), who lost his classmate at vocational school Naoki Miyamoto (45 at the time) in the incident, said, "I put my hands together with the feeling that I was here again this year and that I should rest well. I wonder why I have to go through such a hard time. I don't want to forget the incident that had a big impact on society."

A 15-year-old man who was near the scene at the time of the incident said, "On the day of the incident, I saw ambulances rushing one after another, and I thought that something terrible had happened. I don't want to forget the death of an innocent person."
