Is the age of consent in Japan really 13?

Well yes, sort of….but not really.
However, that’s part of the reason for the popularity of Enjo kyosai (援助交際) aka “compensated dating” where high school-aged girls are paid by older men to “date” them (and render sexual services generally).

Here’s the way the so-called “age 13 is age of consent” works:
The age of consent in Japan is 13 years old under the Japanese national criminal law code. However, all municipalities and prefectures have their own particular laws such as Tokyo’s “Youth Protection Law” which prohibit adults from having sex with youths who are under 17 years old. Because the age of consent in Japan ranges from 13 to 18, depending on jurisdiction, many enjo kyosai clients cannot be charged with statutory rape. See the website:

Japan — Age of Consent
Although the age of sexual consent in Japan is 13 years of age, prefecture law usually overrides federal law, raising the age up to 18.

As an added note, even though the age of consent in Japan can be 13, the age of majority is 20 for voting. The age of adulthood is considered 20 and driving age is 18.

Weird? Here’s a better one. Japan’s “Prostitution Prevention Act”(1958) only prohibts actual sexual
intercourse (or sex controlled by organized crime). That law defines as That law defines as “true” sexual conduct between men and women, and not to “imitation” between same sex persons, so gay prostitution is not prohibited directly. That also makes hand jobs, water queens, or homosexual SM nuns legal.
Therefore, creatively kinky places like the “Sexual Harassment Corporation” where you pay to molest girls in school and business sets are totally legal.

  1. Wondering Says:

    It would be intresting to see a list of what the prefectures for age requirements rather than taking a guess. Searched the net for any information regarding this and only came up with Tokyos which is already mentioned

  2. Chr Says:

    So how do you find out what it actually is in your prefecture? Searching the net I’ve come up with nothing about what any particular information nor any information about what one would expect if one where to break that prefectural law.

  3. JD Says:

    I also would find it interesting to know the differences between prefectures. There seems to be virtually no information on the internet about this and it’s difficult to know where to go to find out.

  4. Chiyo Chan Says:

    Please dont rape me

  5. anonymus Says:

    it makes me wonder that people want to know the age in specific areas…. could it be people actually want 2 violate young girls… =[

    if your over 18, dont go under 17, please people

  6. Lindsey Says:

    this is horrible, i cannnot believe someone would make up such a rule for these young innocent ladies to be molested in such areas as school, i mean come on what the heck is this world coming to: i will protest if we ever get a chance: this is totally outrageous!!!

  7. Robert Says:

    >>what the heck is this world coming to

    Try “what the heck has the world come from.” The Japanese were anything but prude before WWII. Americans were the ones that put a lot of the ‘censorship’ into certain industries and whatnot.

  8. TragicEcho Says:

    I really don’t find this bad or unusual. I just think that they have different values outside of your tradition Judeo-Christian heritage so you think there is somethin morally wrong with it. Most of the laws that forbide sex at all are primarily created after World War 2 and to keep relations with the United States good. I think Lindsey is ethnocentric and wants to police the world.

  9. OlderNow Says:

    Lindsay was appalled that it is somehow ok to molest girls in school, but I believe she may have misread the original post. I think it was saying that the allowed activities take place in “sets”. Which I take to mean rooms made up to look like certain locations, such as schools, etc. In other words, no different than some brothels here in the USA that offer similar “sets”.

  10. JayB Says:

    i believe that there isn’t anything wrong with girls 13 and older being able to have sex as long as it’s consentual. People are idiots who want to believe that they’re kids are saints when the truth is that this sort of thing willingly happens all the time in the united states. if you really think about it it’s only natural for this sort of attraction to occur. youth is a trait we are biologically disposed to find attractive but people like Lindsey are brainwashed by American media to believe that this hasn’t been happening since the beginning of man, underage consentual sex = rape, and that there is something wrong with men who are into girls who are probably already finished with puberty. If these kinds of relationships didn’t have to be kept secret ther would probably be more control over them.

  11. Dave Says:

    TragicEcho has a good point – although it is important to ensure that people aren’t being taken advantage of, teenagers have more capacity to make decisions than most people give them credit for. They certainly are capable of making decisions just as well, if not better in some cases than literally millions of “adults.” age 17+ doesn’t guarantee any sort of particular capacity for good judgment nor does it necessarily ensure that a woman won’t feel “violated” if she has sex – if you want to argue for those not being spoken for and abused, consider focusing on nations such as, oh I don’t know, Sudan?

  12. Well... Says:

    Well….Some girls would like to date older men.
    My friend,who is fourteen,says she would love to date Kyo,from Dir En Grey who is thirty-one…..

  13. zac Says:

    i agree, also, i dont see people ragging on shakespere making juliet 13. i guess i don’t see the difference, as long as you are of childbearing age. speaking of which, lindsey, me and my (at the time future) wife have been having sex since i was 16 and she was 18. i am now 22. people seem to forget that “kids” aren’t all innocent these days…

  14. O Rly Says:

    hmm, to a lolicon this could be fun… I’d have a field day.

  15. Indi t Says:

    people who are so outraged by this need to relax.

    if you forgot, in alot of part of the world, if you are old enough to get pregnant, or get someone pregnant, then your an adult.

    and the funny thing about all this is that you can be like “oh 21 is an adult” but come one now get real, everyone knows that all because you have reached a certain age, doesnt mean you mature at all. did the movie “animal house” teach you anything? “jackass”? and those are people who are pushing 30.

    point is, dont say it’s “horrible” or it’s “rape” because have you ever wondered why alot of foreign children are more ‘mature’ then in the US? in afica, i would be married off by now (i’m 17)…plz…if you dont like it, at least you dont have to live in that country and watch the “BIG BAD MOLESTATION TOUPEE”

  16. Kage no Imoto Says:

    I think the age of consent should be when both individuals are physically ready and consenting to one another. It’s known that most people hit puberty around age 12-13. If they want to make that desicion, it should be entirely up to them, and they should be responsable for their own actions.

  17. Jonkaru Says:

    After reading some of the posts I have say, I understand what some of you guys are saying about cultural differences and such, however, Who the hell wants to have sex with a 13 year old girl? In my book, short though it may be, that constitutes pedophilia.
    Also, while the kids maybe are having it, I believe that most of us posting are adults, and we should follow adult rules. Adults, should have sex with adults. Period. If you have to ask about an age of consent law, maybe, just maybe, you should rethink having that particular encounter.
    Just a thought and only one man’s opinion.

  18. Anonymous Says:

    Kage no Imouto, awesome lolicon name. But he’s right, even kids before that age would take an interest in learning more about sex. Instead of punishing people that make this decision, we should make it our responsibility to explain to kids and teenagers the dangers of unprotected sex, how to form lasting relationships with others, and they shouldn’t be ashamed by their own feelings. For some crazy reason, conservative America just doesn’t trust their own kids to make decisions for themselves and I think that now would be a great time to change that.

  19. Safin Says:

    I think 13 is too young but I dont think its wrong for a 15-17 year old boy to have sex with his 15-17 year old girlfriend. When your deaing with people who are over 21 years of age then its a different story they should only be able to have sex with someone who is 18+ (perhaps even 17 of she is very mature minded) as younger girls are more gullible and over 21 guys are more sophisticated at lying to their dates… Im not going under 20 thats for sure…

  20. nik Says:

    what the fu… is wrong with some of ya, well somethings gotta be. This has nothing to do with religion, or anything of related to that.
    Just because the legal age of consent in japan is 13, or anywhere else in the world being below the age of 18 doesn´t mean it makes it right for them to do it!! Cause don´t come and tell me that an 11/12/13 y.o girl has sexual feelings at that age, they don´t have, but boys at those ages do have such sexual feelings still.. it doesn´t mean they should be doing it. People at such a young age, they do not have the body developed, nor the maturity to be having sex. Not even 12 y.o with 12 y.o should be doing it, let alone a 13 y.o with an adult which is also as bad.
    They should enjoy their childhood and teens years, those years don´t last forever also cause they have their wholes lives to be having sex. I think the age of consent should be when both individuals are physically ready, when both older but in committed and mature relationship, and consenting to one another.

  21. johnson Says:

    what a strange strange country, i just read this on wikipedia and couldnt believe it. i always thought the japanese were some of the best, honest people

  22. cray Says:

    Intriguing. Not that Japan is in any way alone in this.

    As a guy.. can’t say there weren’t some older women I didn’t want to do it with when I was 13. I still think I’d have liked to :)

  23. cray Says:

    And there were successful kings in the past that started their reigns in their early teens and before.

    Largely a matter of how you’re raised I suppose.

  24. Jasmine Cocoa Says:

    What is a water queen? O_O;;;

  25. tom Says:

    I’m researching this because I’m concerned wit the us sex tourism laws if in a country or part of country ware a the age of consent is below 18 the country would not investigate it this will lead to the us in investigating an alleged crime with out the help of the local police in countrys like Korea japan the Netherlands now thare is no way to have fair trial with respect to privacy and it would illegal for the us to run a full us style investigation in a foreign illegal country and anything short of a full us style investigation would be a violation the right to a fair trial or does that go away when the us goverment can’t have there way because of it

    not saying that i faver sex with a 13 year old but

    lets sat i don’t tip a hotel staff enough he pays a 14 year old girl to open my door with his key card and jump on my bed naked with me whele im watching tv or sleeping and takes a photo of us together how would i fight this in court
    when the 14 year old girl tells us counselers that we had sex and thare is a photo to go with it
    if the sex was assumed legal due to a foreign jurisdiction then this type of blackmail would be alot harder to do but the us made this all to easy

    and besides do we want to say it is ok for some midle eastern contry to arrest us citizens for sex before marriage in us territory when visiting them well we set the precedent for that do we want to protest it or embrace it

  26. tom Says:

    tee for thought here the age of consent by in canda and in alot of Europe is 16 and in some places it is even lower like in spain it is 13

    the us government is about to over step its authority or more likely deny a fair trail to anyone overseas with regards to sex tourism

    no country should try to enforce its laws outside of its boarders but im afraid to say it may to late
    for the usa land of the free

    i had to word my last statement very carefully to avoid a few censorship laws designed to prevent protests and expression of personnel opinion on sensitive matters because it takes control away from the the big and powerful and in to the masses ware it belongs if i am to late im afraid that this very comment will land me in some hot water if not this will be 1 of many to encourage change

  27. Mandee Says:

    The legal driving age is not 20, it’s 18.

  28. Jake Says:

    Being that i work in a USA highschool, I can see that girls between the ages of 13-16 want to be sexually active and in most cases they are. However 13-14 YO girls are noticeably less mature, both physically and mentally, than girls 15+. A 15 YO age of concent may be most appropriate for a compromise between the persons safty and their sexual exploration with older persons.

  29. Wagner Says:

    @Lyndsey & any others who are “horrified” by this… where the heck are you living people? In the European Union the average age of consent is about 14… in Spain is 13… in Germany, Italy, France, Austria and few others is 14… in the UK is 16…
    you have no idea how strange and closed-minded you sound… the EU has more than 400 million people and almost no one is complaining about that (except from some religious leaders, but no one pays attention to them)… and yes, these teenagers are extremly normal after having had sex at about 13-15, an not “predated” or “molested” as a lot of retarded conservatives in the US believe…

  30. Taro Says:

    Oh, by the way: From the US Department of Justice

    Q.http://www.usdoj.gov/criminal/ceos/trafficking_faqs.html If I travel abroad and have sex with a minor, is that a crime? What if I don’t know that the girl is a minor?

    A. Yes, it is a crime for a United States citizen or permanent resident to travel abroad for the purpose of having sex with a minor and it is a crime for a United States citizen or permanent resident to actually have sex with a minor while abroad.

  31. Pedobear Says:

    I’m so confused! If teenagers are legal, then its not pedophilia? I’m sticking with smaller kids from now on!

  32. The Angry Offender Says:

    Aww hell, I have to open another can of friggin’ worms on this one. “Jonkaru” says “Who the hell wants to have sex with a 13 year old girl? In my book, short though it may be, that constitutes pedophilia.” Unfortunately, you don’t even know what the hell “pedophilia” is. Part of Wikipedia’s definition of the term is: “As a medical diagnosis, it is defined as a psychological disorder in which an adult experiences a sexual preference for prepubescent children…” “Prepubescent” generally means “at the age before puberty.” In other words, PEDOPHILIA means SEXUAL ATTRACTION TO CHILDREN WHO HAVE NOT HIT PUBERTY! The correct terminology for attraction to post-pubescent, non-adult persons is “ephebophilia” and it IS NOT PEDOPHILIA. Your “short book” does not matter because it contains an incorrect definition; is a 13-year-old having sex with another 13-year-old a pedophile? How about a 20-year-old? The answer is no, in either case. You can’t argue that fact because it is just that: a fact, not an opinion. Now, with the definition of “pedophile” out of the picture, we can discuss this without such erroneous distractions.

    The information that Taro quotes from the USDOJ site leads one to believe that you can be prosecuted if you have sex with anyone overseas that is “a minor.” Had Taro done more than a mere trivial search on the subject, Taro would have looked up the info on the referenced statutes:

    http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/2423.html
    http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/usc_sec_18_00002243—-000-.html

    At the first link, we have the following:
    (c) Engaging in Illicit Sexual Conduct in Foreign Places.— Any United States citizen or alien admitted for permanent residence who travels in foreign commerce, and engages in any illicit sexual conduct with another person…
    (f) Definition.— As used in this section, the term “illicit sexual conduct” means
    (1) a sexual act (as defined in section 2246) with a person under 18 years of age that would be in violation of chapter 109A if the sexual act occurred in the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States; or
    (2) any commercial sex act (as defined in section 1591) with a person under 18 years of age.

    But wait! There are important factors here that are not discussed often: “travels IN FOREIGN COMMERCE” and the reference to Chapter 109A. What does Chapter 109A say about it all? This is what:
    (a) Of a Minor.— Whoever…
    [1] knowingly engages in a sexual act with another person who—
    (1) has attained the age of 12 years but has not attained the age of 16 years; and
    (2) is at least four years younger than the person so engaging…

    That means that 16 and under are effectively off-limits if you are more than four years above the age of the potential sexual partner. The other side of the coin is that 16 and up are fair game, regardless.

    But what about the “in foreign commerce” business? There was already a prosecution and Ninth Circuit appeal ruling on this, but apparently the dissenting judge in the Ninth Circuit found that the majority judges were essentially throwing out the traditional rules and methods used with the Commerce Clause in domestic cases. That’s practically accusing them of “legislating from the bench” as it is said, and the case has not yet been appealed to the Supreme Court of the USA. See:
    http://circuit9.blogspot.com/2006/01/case-o-week-no-clark-bar-to-foreign.html

    So, if you’re a U.S. citizen and you’re 20+ years old, 16+ should be your own personal lower limit for age of potential sexual partners. If you’re under 20, subtract four years from your age (in days!) and you’ve got your lower age limit. If you want to potentially challenge this glitchy PROTECT Act in court, go ahead and have sex with someone more than four years younger and under 16, but don’t complain if they try to make a really nasty example of you when you get home until this law is appealed to the Supreme Court and we see whether or not the Ninth Circuit really is wrong on the interpretation of this one.

    One interesting thing to note, however, is that this was an old man having a COMMERCIAL SEX ACT WITH A MINOR, meaning he PAID for the sex. If you have a NON-COMMERCIAL SEX ACT, where you’re not doing it with a minor prostitute, this law may or may not apply, depending on how the courts end up interpreting it, but because this entire provision of the PROTECT Act hinges on the Foreign Commerce Clause for authority, and was specifically legislated for the purposes of preventing child trafficking and “sex tours” with minors, you may not be in such hot water. In other words, if you and a 14-year-old high school girl end up having consensual, unpaid sex and it’s legal in the jurisdiction in which you do it, this particular law may not stick. I’ll leave it up to the other people on this board who like to push their own flavor of morals onto others to tell you if you’re a disgusting person or not, since forcing you into their own moral compass seems to give them all some pretty powerful orgasms.

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have other people to piss off. Ciao! ~TAO

    “Cause don´t come and tell me that an 11/12/13 y.o girl has sexual feelings at that age” Thats a naive and close minded 3way of thinking. I had sex when I was 12 with my 12 year old girlfriend and SHE initiated the entire thing… I was very inexperienced and I hadn’t even kissed a girl before her. Sexual thoughts aren’t limited to just guys you poor close minded fool.

    “hen its a different story they should only be able to have sex with someone who is 18+”

    HAHAHAHA. Well the age of consent in the most sexually repressed western country in the world(america) isn’t even that strict. In some states its as low as 14 and in most you just can’t have sex with someone thats 3 years younger than you. Meaning an 18 year old can have sex with a 16 year old.

    What kind of sexually repressed world do you live in? Do you honestly think there’s that much difference in maturity between an 18 and 16 year old? Do you think that a girl that age can’t understand what she’s doing? You seem to be getting 9 year old girls and 14-17 year old girls confused.

    I have a friend on the sex offenders list because he had consensual sex with a 16 year old when he was 19. He has to live the rest of his life labeled as some kind of child molester because of this. They don’t tell the story, for all they know they could have loved each other. The only thing it says on the list is “indecency w/ a child by sexual contact”. That pretty much brands him in his own neighborhood. The consent laws are pretty messed up.

    Pedophilia MEANS PRE-PUBESCENT, if it’s a girl who is in or past puberty, then it simply is NOT pedophilia, period. That’s the DEFINITION and the LAW. It’s what the word means.

    Statutory rape and pedophilia are not the same thing. 14, 15, 16…year old girls are going to be attractive to men, of course, and any girl, if she LOOKS like a sexually developed young woman, is going to be sexually attractive to most men, even if they are affraid to admit it because they don’t want to be accused of something.

  37. Gaara Says:

    ok, what you people fail to see beyond a consent age, is that people will have sex whenever they want. instead of focusing on the fact that they make it legal to have sex earlier, focus more on the fact on how to prevent pregnancy and spread of std’s. i think at this point in our world culture we should just get past the fact that teenagers will have sex, and just push more that if they should choose to that they should do it safely. in japan you can buy everything in vending machines, smokes, beer, condoms, dirty magazines anything! so i think japan and most of europe has a much better grasp on the reality, they make these things openly available so that teenagers can experience them and get them over with and mature much easier then americans. americans try to hide everything, so youll find that a kid got pregnant because he was too afraid to buy a condom or ask their parents about safe sex. so to all you people who responded with shock and awe, wake up and see the real world.

  38. Ashley Says:

    I agree with Gaara on this.

    Teenagers want to have sex, whether the law wants them to or not.
    In the US in high school, I knew a lot of kids who were beginning to be sexually active at the age of 13 and 14. I nearly lost my virginity at 13 and a lot of people I knew lost their virginity at 14….and a lot of girls became pregnant by the age of 16 or 17 due to bad sexual education.

    The main thing about this is education. If you bring up your children with a good, well-rounded knowledge of safe sex and safety in general, then they will be able to look out for themselves.

    Whether it’s legal or not a parent still should have some control over their child. If they tell their 14 year old daughter that it is not ok to have sex with someone over a certain age for now, then that will have more impact than spending time whining about the law.

    I’m also alarmed by the fact that girls are being the ones of concern here. Why is sex seen as such a negative thing for girls? This outlook is the problem to begin with.
    Girls (and boys) should be taught that sex is something healthy that should happen with healthy people…they shouldn’t be constantly told to be afraid of it.

    gaara i couldnt agree with you more when i was 13 i began spending all my time trying to get porn and all kinds of other bs. eventually my parents just didnt really care and i got over it. ive been screwing around with girls since i was like 14, and im not messed up. americans are so self rightous so many here think everybody elses country should be just like ours.

  40. Sillyman Says:

    Actually, I do believe that while the nationwide age of consent is 13 in Japan, nonconsensual sex with a minor is more harshly punished than nonconsensual sex with an adult. So basically what Japanese law is doing is making it so that minors are protected but not restricted so long as they are above the age of 13.

  41. Anonymoose Says:

    you guys simply dont understand foreign culture. the age of CONSENT is 13 in SOME parts, meaning, that if you KNOW what sex is, and you WISH to have it, you may consent to it. but why would you consent to something you dont know about? even if you were that young? i dont know of anyone who would. some of you think it’s sick for anyone to fuck a blossoming boy or girl, but i’m sure that those wonderfully blossoming children have forbidden fantasies just like you do. (not all of them, but a majority of them.) how could they not with the people they grow up around? if you want to discuss this or argue with me, my Email is bad_dreams_good_nightmares55@yahoo.com

  42. lulz Says:

    So basically. What matters is. We can go to Japan and have sex with hot high school girls and get away with it as long as it wasn’t paid for.

  43. a note Says:

    Just like to point out to Jonkaru, perhaps you have merely assumed we are all adults because of your own age and because you may have assumed you are above teenagers. I am sure we are not all necessarily adults.
    I am 18 and I ask do you honestly think I am an “adult” purely because of that? Common sense should stretch beyond laws, not be controlled by them.
    I am not talking about the issue but rather your perception of age.
    I know I for one will remember what its like to be young.

  44. guy23 Says:

    I think that the age of consent should be left to the parents and their children. I’f a 13 girl wants to be with a 20 30 40 50 0r 100 year old guy or a 13 yr old boy wants to be with a 100 year old woman it should be between the youngest party and their parents. State and federal law should be preventing kids from being rape and molested. But consentual sex should be ok. My great grand mother was married and had a kid buy the time she was 14 and she stayed with that man until the day he died. The only reason people apose the idea is because they are narrow minded and scared. I say its high time to oppse this oppression and rise up to say we are a free people and should be allowed to choose how we live.
