Sataro Fukiage (吹上 佐太郎 Fukiage Satarō, February 1889 - September 28, 1926) was a Japanese serial killer, known as the Erotomania. He was a serial rapist-murderer in Japan. He killed at least seven girls.

He first murdered a girl in 1906. He admitted that he had killed six girls between 1923 and 1924. The trial admitted three of six cases, but the exact number of victims is unknown. He raped a number of women besides the murder victims. According to one theory, he raped at least 93 girls. Some estimates say he raped over 100 women.

Biography

He was born in Shimogyo, Kyoto. He was forced to work by his family at the age of 9 under the East Asian age reckoning (The description about the East Asian age reckoning is omitted in the following). He often changed his works. He had sex with an about 17-year-old woman at the age of 11. It is child sexual abuse under a modern standard, but it wasn't admitted at that time. He was fired due to having sex with her, and then he was arrested for theft at the age of 12, but he learned kana and math for only two months in jail. He was arrested again for theft soon after his release, but he learned classical Chinese in jail.

He had sex with a 54-year-old woman at the age of 17. His life like male prostitution changed to the life as a rapist after that. He raped her 11-year-old daughter and her neighboring girls. On September 24, 1906, he raped and murdered a 11-year-old girl at Kinkaku-ji. The victim was his old acquaintance. He was 18 years old, but he was 17 years old under the western age system.

In jail, he studied many books of many great persons such as Confucius, Mencius, Socrates, Aristotle and Nichiren. He was released in 1922, but he was fired again due to his previous convictions. In April 1923, he was arrested for molesting a 4-year-old girl, but was released soon.

Between June 1923 and April 1924, he raped and murdered six girls, ages from eleven to sixteen. On July 28, 1924, he was arrested. He was convinced that he would be sentenced to die, but he wanted to say something.

He finished his book, The Street (娑婆, Syaba), as will during the trials, then was executed on September 28, 1926. It was reported that he went to die nobly, differing from many prisoners. In his book, he requested many parents not to make their children poor.
