Identification Investigator

Inspector Morimoto of the Osaka Police Department is known as the “God of Identification”, having arrested over 300 wanted criminals. He does it with facial recognition techniques which have been used across Japan since 1978.


The key is studying the eyes of the suspects in mug shots without being distracted by changeable features like hair. Senior inspectors with 12 years of experience can successfully identify 11 out of 11 suspects accurately just by seeing their eyes.
