Miyagawa, a part-time worker, met the 35 women through a multi-level marketing scheme that sold shower-related products, the Tokyo Reporter said.
One of Miyagawa’s victims told MBS he had kissed her upon their second meeting. According to the Tokyo Reporter, the victim told MBS, “I told him, ‘I don’t want to do that unless you are someone who wants to get married and really be with me in the future.’ He responded, ‘I’m serious. I’m going to be with you for the rest of my life.’”
In February, the women formed a coalition and filed a complaint to the police about the serial dater, according to the Tokyo Reporter.
