    it's still 13 with parental approval, which they had. From my time there it felt like a rule that wasn't super enforced like it is in America.

    ^I heard that each prefecture has their own age of consent and the majority of them set it as 18 years old. cmiiw

    Your Google'fu failed you @Sae Chan.

    Japan's Penal code sets the age of consent as 13. But due to international pressure, the Children Welfare Act was created. The act was mainly created to curtail child prostitution, but it effectively raises the age to "fornicate" to 18.

    Also, most prefectures do have their own local laws that also set the age at 18.

    *I know, I know, linking wikipedia ect... This one actually links to actual text of the Act.

    Now, having law on the books, and enforcing said laws are two entirely separate things.

    Basically, if the parents of the minor consent, it can be pretty low (i.e. 13 or so, but a little different based on prefecture). Although when a person (adult over 20) gets caught engaging in a relationship with a minor (under 18 or 16 depending on prefecture), the enforcement of the rule greatly varies. Especially with parental permission (i.e. a "sincere romantic relationship"), then basically legally usually nothing happens at all. Even when I've heard of people in a similar situation (breaking the rule, without parental permission), it is basically just saying sorry and that is it, nothing really comes of it (i.e. jail time or ostracization from society, like would happen in the west). Basically what I'm saying is it is not a hard-rule, as enforced like in western countries.

    Either way, whether you agree or not, she and the teacher had parental permission, so while it was wrong because of his job, it was not legally wrong because of their age difference.

    I hope nothing but the best for her. She (and her parents, and especially her former teacher) made a mistake that killed her chances. But I always liked her on KeyaKake, and wished the attitude of fans wasn't so weirdly old-fashioned and harsh about her situation. She had spirit and a nice surreal attitude, it seemed to me, and would have made a good member.

    Who knows if this account is for real. But I have been following it anyway.
