This is a follow-up to a story from November 17th, titled Serial Foot LickerCaught After 4 Years At Large.
November 7th for forcibly licking a woman’s foot for about 35 minutes has been arrested
again for a similar incident.
9 AM in Kyoto’s Fushimi Ward on September 16th, about 2 months after the
original incident that led to his arrest. Much like in the original incident Nishiyama
asked a woman who happened to be passing by to help him fix his brake lights. The
woman, who was in her 30’s, agreed to help Nishiyama. Nishiyama then asked her
to step on the brake pedal for him so she then sat in the driver’s seat of the
car and that is when Nishiyama crawled into the car and began to lick the soles
of her feet. This continued for about 20 minutes.

just one woman’s feet.”

ashi name otoko) people online have given this guy a different nickname. Online
Nishiyama has become known as “Yokai ashi name” (溶解あし), which roughly translates to “The Foot
Licking Monster.” That’s a very rough translation though, since yokai are a
type of traditional Japanese mythical creature that can be translated as
monster, demon, goblin or even spirit. They’re prominently featureed in the
popular anime series Yo-kai Watch. You can learn more about yokai here.
