This chapter focuses on the very brief history of Japanese sexual harassment laws and presents the landmark Japanese court decision in the Fukuoka case, which introduced the concept of sexual harassment to the Japanese legal community and to Japanese society as a whole. It provides the reader an overview of Japanese sexual harassment law and, to this end, focuses on three points. First, the chapter describes the historical and social context in which the Fukuoka case was brought; second, it describes the impact that the case has had on the subsequent development of Japanese sexual harassment law; and finally, it summarizes the current state of Japanese sexual harassment law and the steps which still need to be taken.

Keywords:   Japanese sexual harassment, Fukuoka case, Japanese legal community, Japanese society
