A 43-year-old doctor has been arrested on suspicion of child prostitution after allegedly paying a 16-year-old female high school student 40,000 yen in cash for sexual acts in April 2018. 

According to police, Nagayuki Kurata committed lewd acts at an apartment he rented in Tokyo’s Ota Ward. 

Kurata is the director of Jonan Omori Nishi Clinic, which specializes in internal medicine, Fuji TV reported. Police said Kurata reportedly became acquainted with the girl on Twitter, where they began exchanging messages. 

Kurata was quoted by police as saying he wanted to speak to his lawyer before making a statement.

Well Japan is a “Lolita society “where they have been “promoting “ this sickening innocent young girl fad so sometimes you can’t really fault some of the guys who fall for it.

Even some grown women have that annoying habit of talking and acting like they are 12. :-/

Sixteen is either the age of consent or above in many developed countries. Now, there is of course the argument that the guy is a complete creep for wanting to bahoon a girl young enough to be his daughter, but as long as she knew what she was getting into, I say let her take the money from a middle-aged crisis.

I hope she get tax on her earning, has she declared it to the tax dept? not declaring an income is against the law, so has she committed a offence of tax evasion ? may be she should be in the next cell to Mr Ghosn

Still, she is not legal age and this is considered to be statutory rape.

Ridiculous.

How hard is it for this guy to find a woman & start a relationship? It’s not that hard. Eventually, she’ll put out. He’s a doctor for crying out loud.

This girl is a minor in the eyes of the law BUT she is old enough to know the difference between right and wrong & smart enough to know you don't go to a strangers residence and that the internet is not the place where you always meet nice people. I guess she was searching / looking for someone willing to fill her pockets with some Yen which she did and she took the 40,000.  So who is to blame well I'll tell ya : The doctor, The girl and the parents for not teaching their daughter better and for not being more involved in her live and the choices she makes. Now should she be punished well maybe not in the courts, But her parents should but a stiff Boot up her a-Hole for selling her self. Was this the first time she has sold her self ??

Society pushes this girl as much and more than the man himself. Don't get me wrong -- he needs to be charged and go to prison, but with magazines showing 13 year-olds in bikinis next to the porn section (which also has girls in junior high outfits and is next to the ice cream and/or ATMs), have cosplay which advertises little children as sex objects, and more, society also needs a big update to go with the laws.

Big deal. He got his kicks. She got her money. Done deal.

She gets off (pun intended) scot-free to go and get another guy in trouble.

His mistake was paying her in cash. Her parents likely saw she had lots of money and it all came out.

I believe that papakatsu is the Japanese equivalent of a sugar daddy. It’s not a referee to the girl being underage.

I read similar news a lot these days. Some girls are looking for men who financially support them on Internet. (papakatsu)They are getting money by doing sexual act with older men. It is against a law but I think that majority are not being caught.

But what a shame! Where is his pride of being a doctor? This wouldn't be news if he was doing the same thing to an adult women.

If he hadn't paid her, would he still have been charged?

Sorry Kurata, this is Japan. You will be put in a maximum security cell with tatami floor and undergo questioning WITHOUT a lawyer until the forced confession is accomplished.

Wonder if he will spend the next 3 months in jail without being charged.  Kind of agree with Chip - the ability to procure young women or live out schoolgirl fantasies here is only a conbini away......

He should have charged HER and called it a medical exam.

I agree with you,

What have we here - police allowed him to make this statement and perhaps will allow him to speak with a lawyer compare this treatment to that of detainee Ghosn for a good dose of hypocrisy.

How did he get caught? Was he bragging about it st the pub?

Too little information to form any kind of opinion.

Maybe she turned him in herself so her family could get a big fat brown envelope and pay off some of their debts. Maybe, just maybe her parents put her up to it.

Nah it was more likely ghosts of inter-dimensional aliens had invaded the doctor’s body and made him do it. Maybe. Just maybe.

Any particular reason you're speculating?

The girl is a minor and therefore is legally unable to consent. She is the victim here, you don't charge/blame the victim.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

I'd like to know how he got caught

Dont charge the girl, hammer the johns!

Don't say a damn thing until you speak to your lawyer.

This is not news. Anyone that can read Japanese knows exactly how to engage in such acts or can easily figure it out. Japan needs to get serious about the exploitation of women and girls.
