He had been also suspected of forcibly confining the girl at his home but the prosecutors dropped the allegation due to insufficient evidence.

Are there no statements from the victims themselves? Isn't that sufficient evidence in and of itself?

The city is more than 400 kilometers away from the girl's home, wow that's some distance, its not as if she's just gone around to a friends house for tea, and how does a 12 YO afford a train or bus ticket for that distance? so I suspect he's abducted her and drove back to his house, the other way of checking what he's said via the internet is to check his, and her hard drive on the computer.

Through the 400 km route, was she wandering alone and nobody noticed? Or was she in the private vehicle?

Try to pressure the Surveillance team like in those Korean thriller movies.

Removing shoes and phone sounds like confinement to me.

It’s already known from previous reports that he traveled to Osaka and they went together to Tochigi by train with him paying for her tickets.

@zaphod, no I didn't forget about the original article, for the simple reason I never have seen, or heard, or read about it before this article.
