Age of Consent in Japans prefectures and territories In both of Japans territories, Okinotori Islands and Marcus Islands, the local age of consent is 13 years.

It is a criminal offence for anyone to be involved in any sexual act (sexual intercourse, sexual touching, kissing etc) with anyone under the age of 13 whether the young person agrees or not, on the basis that anyone under 13 lacks the capacity to give valid consent to any sexual act.
