    A 40-year-old man was arrested in Tokyo for sending garbage, such as rotten tea leaves mixed with dirt and women's underwear, through the mail to his former classmates as revenge for bullying during elementary school.

    Shigeta Miura, a resident of Musashino City was arrested by Tokyo Metropolitan Police on suspicion of mailing various garbage to his former classmates, TV Asahi reported on November 30.

    Between August 2015 and October 2016 Miura allegedly sent 70 envelopes containing weird items such as rotten tea leaves mixed with dirt and women's underwear.

    According to the report, police suspect that in a year Miura sent a total of more than 500 packages to four people who were in the same Boy Scout troop with him in elementary school.

    The man, who has been charged with public nuisance, admitted his guilt during interrogation, saying that he did it as revenge on these people.

    “I did this because they bullied me at elementary school. They made me eat my lunches alone and stuff,” TBS News cites the suspect as saying.

      Only in Japan! Considering how many Anime series concern rather serious bullying in school, this is clearly a problem. My hat off to Miura-chan. A very annoying, but harmless way to express his "opinion" of these people. The Japanese say that curses come home to roost, so apparently does dirty deeds :) lol

      I wonder if he still eats his lunches alone? (facetious comment perhaps but the intent behind it is to wonder if the bullying has had an effect on his adult life, beyond seeking 'revenge'.
