He raped at least 21 women aged between 13 and 50 while invading Hubei, Hunan and Guangxi. He also raped another 27 women 43 times in so-called "comfort stations," according to a confession he made in 1954. He recounted that in August 1944, he saw four Chinese women taking refuge in a tea grove in Leiyang County, Hunan Province. He chased one of them towards the valley and she fell from a 30-meter cliff and died. He caught another woman aged around 23, threatened her with handgun and raped her, according to his confession.
