Satoshi Uematsu, a 26-year-old who worked at the Tsukui Yamayurien in Sagamihara , a facility for the handicapped in Tokyo managed to give Japan the worst mass killing it has seen in generations on July 25.
Japan, with its strict gun control laws, is among the countries that have witnessed the least number of mass killings in recent times but knife attacks and other weapons of mass destruction have made headlines.
The biggest loss of life in Japan’s recent history was in 1982, when 24 people died after a Japan Air Lines pilot crashed a flight into Tokyo Bay.
