In this Japanese name, the family name is Komori.

Kazutaka Komori (小森一孝 Komori Kazutaka?, 1943–November 1971) was a Japanese political activist and murderer who tried, and failed to be an assassin.

In 1960, Komori stabbed the wife of a businessman and killed her 60-year-old maid. He wanted to kill the publisher of a fictional story about the Japanese Imperial family. Instead, he killed the man's wife and a servant.[1]

Komori thought the publisher of the story showed disrespect for the Imperial House of Japan.[2]
