Tokyo’s Akihabara district, a popular spot for Japanese subcultures, on Friday marked the 10th anniversary of a stabbing rampage that killed seven and injured 10 others.

A stand for flower offerings was set up near the intersection where Tomohiro Kato, a 35-year-old former temporary worker now on death row, mowed down pedestrians in a vehicle-free zone with a truck and randomly stabbed passers-by with a knife on June 8, 2008.
