This is all a misunderstanding of cultural difference.
In Japan, when a married couple divorces the mother is usually granted sole custody. The father usually never sees the child again. Visitation never happens because usually divorced couples don't want to interfere with each others lifestyle.
In US, American fathers are more active in participating in the life of their child. Therefore even after divorce they usually seek visitation rights. It is common in the US.
I'm sure both parents love their kids very much. They just have a wrong way of showing it. I'm sure the father will be released and it's just a matter of finding a way for him to visit his child. I haven't read anything about the mother denying his visitation.
