When the fugitive landed in San Jose, he said it felt 'surreal' that he managed to pull off his daring escape.
Saito spent Monday in San Jose trying to buy a car, but could not find a good enough deal.
In 2000, he appealed to be released but was refused.
Until 2003 however, he had been allowed to have supervised conjugal visits at the home of a loved one.
However in 2009 one person escaped and was missing for nearly three years before being arrested.
