Two Japanese men and two Chinese women have been arrested over a fake marriage scam aimed at allowing one of the women to extend her stay in Japan, police said Thursday.

The two men — 61-year-old Katsutoshi Kato and 50-year-old Fumihiko Nakamura — are both unemployed. The 30-year-old women, Chen Xiaobin and Zhao Rong, are bar hostesses.
