    I'm not sure what you mean by "okay". Are you asking if it's legal?

    Culturally acceptable. I'm aware the age of consent in Japan is 13, but a 26 year old dating a 16 year old is quite a gap.

  • It's common in media, but I assume you mean in actual society.

    It's common in media? You could post an answer to this where you say how it's culturally acceptable in Japanese media with examples, since media technically is a part of Japanese culture.
