Gossip spread quite fast.

Another one. Another school teacher. Another day in Japan.

46 years old and he knew she was a minor. As a teacher he should better. He's a perv, a pedo and a piece of trash. Can him!

Did she return the ¥10,000 yen?

I bet this wasn't the first time she'd done that.

It is sad that the teacher was named... this has ruined his Career.

Here in Japan, the JK experience is something unique to Japan - a somewhat "fringe norm" - outside commentators may find it abhorrent, but it's something that goes on a lot in Japan and only comes to light when published in cases like this. Even JT has had articles about it in the past.

I think, the man should be let go, enough damage has been done.

The young woman, clearly found prostitution an easy option for gaining spending money, and could do so again in future. How does one prevent that ? She can't be named - due to her age, but perhaps she needs help ?

Fault on both sides here

Clearly you have no children.

An adult should never have an excuse doing this.

There are many situations this girl may feel pressured.

If she was your daughter you would never say this comment.

Cue the men putting the blame on the underage girl instead of the adult. As usual.

Masayuki Kurita likes young under age girls? Terrible news. He should be in jail until he understands that a full grown man should never think of having sex with a child.

He ruined his career. And his name should be on a list.

Cue you swearing the female is always some pure innocent being taken advantage of by the evil man. So, she's completely blameless then? Is that what you're saying? If so, I disagree. She knew full well what she was doing.

The exact age is unknown. Lots of details missing. The accused is still innocent unless proven guilty.

That is why minors are referred as jail bait in the US. And because crime is profitable like wars, men get enticed to meet impersonators from the police, to charge them with crimes, just for declaring their intentions, even though it was not consummated.

Under the law, yes. That’s what being a minor means, she is not capable of understanding full well what she was doing.

Even if the precocious little hussy did know exactly what she was doing.

Sounds like he did too.

So you think it's okay to call an underaged girl sexually derogatory names?

What name do you have for an adult man who preys on underage girls for sex?

You seem to be saying that men should not be charged for soliciting sex from a minor.

Are you sure you really want to take that stance?

Because such a stance is supportive of men who target minors for sex. In other words, you are giving your blessing for statutory rape.

Mmm, no, I was trying to echo those who claim a child 'knows full well what she's doing' and is just as much to blame as the perp, if not more. I apologise for the rather weak sarc failure. (I thought it was obvious but obviously not.)

What name do you have for an adult man who preys on underage girls for sex?

Scumbag.

Yes it’s quite shocking how many here see fault in the girl’s behavior but not the man, who happens to be an educator teaching young girls and boys how to become responsible, contributing members of society.

@tokyooldman comment is wrong on so many levels I wonder if it’s just sarcasm. Any teacher having sexual relations with a student should immediately lose their job and their license. What parent would be ok with a man like this teaching their children?

Agree with Bungle, neither party is innocent.

If it was my daughter I would be asking myself where I went wrong that my daughter would do that.

She wanted it. She got it. She must be playing with many salarymen.

@rzadigi - He won't be able to Teach any more... hence why I said "enough damage has been done."

Back in my time, at School, I often heard the Girls chatting between themselves about who had done what with whom - mostly with other Kids though... I'd suspect that the same still goes on nowadays Globally.

However, as for this Girl, as I said, the JK thing here in Japan, is real - and is seen as an easy way to make money for HS Girls. Ever wondered why these young Girls have designer clothing or expensive handbags ?

I wouldn't want my Kids associating with such "trash", doing so would be far less safer than having a "Teacher" who opportunistically seeks younger flesh for hire, but hasn't yet been caught.... (you don't know the sexual persuasions of people in positions of Trust, until they've been caught), however the "influence" that this Girl could have upon others around her, would be damaging, to say the least. I expect now, her Family, out of sheer embarrassment/shame, will relocate to somewhere else, and she will continue her "Education" in a location where no one knows her.

The Police, I would hope... should be looking into how she promoted her JK business... through a 3rd party most likely... in which case, that 3rd party should be the one who is stopped/arrested - take away the forum in which these Girls can advertise themselves, and you basically make it harder to find these JK'ers.

Cue the flag waving feminists who don't fact check! Nobody is placing all the blame on her, but she may have known what she was getting into once she accepted the money. We fostered a 14 year old Japanese girl before and she was already sexually active and would always have money to buy her own FULL SERIES of her favorit manga, buy her own clothing, shell out a lot of money for Taiko no Tatsujin and many other things. She didn't have a bank account, allowance or a secret stash. I had loaned her my old iphone and one day I told her I wanted to transfer my photos from the loaned phone to a usb card, I wish I hadn't seen what I saw! I asked her about the stuff she was doing in the videos and she said that's how she makes her money! That made us contact the facility and have her removed from our home. She knew what she was doing and her actions got a 26 year old guy fired from the facility and some other older man arrested (they should be on that peado list).

Have you ever thought about these other sithations? Or you think all young girls are as innocent and guilt free of any wrong doing?

And when faced with proof and facts to debunk your comment, you downvote it! "As usual."

Selling sex is one thing. And adult male buying sex from a teenage girl is quite another.

She didn't get him fired - he got himself fired for soliciting sex from an underage girl.

Have you ever thought about these other sithations? Or you think all young girls are as innocent and guilt free of any wrong doing?

I'm not interested in blaming a teenage girl who is selling sex. It's a different issue. This is about an adult man who solicited sex from a teen girl. He is 100% responsible for his own actions and her actions have zero to do with it.

And it's a good thing he got caught, too, because a man who solicits sex from underage girls is a danger to society.

Hmmm... do not take this as any sort of disagreement with your condemnation, but the part "...is a danger to society...", I realize, I do not fully understand in anything but a 'just because...' sort of way. Could you possibly detail some of the attributes of his behavior that are 'dangerous' to society, or at least more dangerous to society than, clearly, to him personally...
