You notice Singapore does not have such issues at this scale. Why because their legal system effectively handles such antisocial behavior.

Posted in: Man arrested after showing up at police station with woman's body in his car See in context

"Japanese man arrested after showing up at JP police station with JP woman's body in his car in Japan.

"Nakamichi told police that Okada did not wake up on the morning of Nov 11 and he was not sure what had happened to her."

So why didn't he call the 110 for medical assistance or notify hotel staff? (never move a body and call authorities is the J-rule)

Something creepy & fishy, he should have notified authorities at the "love hotel"

"bones Well they went to a love hotel, sooooooooo..." Yep!

Looks like he did not want the knowledge of them TOGETHER at a love hotel---if so why? Tthe big Japanese question..

Is this woman married? Was the get together a secret? Autopsy, and Blood toxicology?

The story indicates the j-man is unemployed, a J-cultural taboo
