Carlos Ghosn’s new routine couldn’t be further from the hard-charging executive lifestyle he enjoyed over the years running a global car alliance. Confined to a detention cell in Tokyo, with limited contact, exercise and strictly regulated meal times, he’s awaiting his fate that prosecutors say could mean a long time in jail for financial misconduct.

Ghosn was whisked away from his corporate jet on Monday and has been under arrest since. Prosecutors provided some insight into the executive’s daily rhythm: eight hours of sleep while he’s in his detention cell, three meals and 30 minutes of prescribed exercise. He’s said to be held at the same facility as the death-row inmates from the Japanese cult that perpetrated the 1995 Tokyo subway sarin attack, many of whom were executed just a few months ago.
