KANAGAWA– According to a report by The Mainichi Shimbun, the residents of the disability welfare facility “Aina Yamayurien” in Atsugi City in Kanagawa Prefecture have kept residents in their living rooms for a long time, and the Kanagawa Prefectural Government has started an on-site survey on the afternoon of the 2nd September.

The activities of the residents were greatly restricted to prevent the infection of the new coronavirus, and it appears they were locked up in their living rooms.

‘Aina Yamayurien’ is managed by the social welfare corporation, ‘Kanagawa Kyokai’, which ran the Tsukui Yamayurien, where 19 residents were killed four years ago by a former employee named Satoshi Uematsu, who was sentenced to death on March 16 2020 by The Yokohama District Court.

In late June, after previously saying it would end investigations into possible abuse of residents at the ‘Tsukui Yamayurien’ care home, the Kanagawa Prefectural Government reversed its decision not to investigate the abuse further.
