CHIBA (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Friday slapped charges of child endangerment on the manager of an erotic bathhouse in Chiba Prefecture after he allegedly employed a 17-year-old girl in October of last year, reports Nippon News Network (July 11).

Officers took Katsuakira Nakamura, the 39-year-old manager of club A La Carte, a soapland (erotic bathhouse) in Chuo Ward of Chiba City, for violating the Child Welfare Law regarding non-confirmation of age for employment.

Nakamura has reportedly admitted to the allegations. “I was negligent in confirming her age,” the suspect is quoted by police.

According to police, the girl, a third-year high school student, utilized the passport of an 18-year-old acquaintance during the application process. She worked at the club in order to obtain money to watch a concert featuring a band in the visual-kei genre of music.

TV Asahi (July 11) reports that A La Carte earns 40 million yen per month in revenue. The girl received a total of 400,000 yen during her period of employment.

According to the Web site for Al La Carte, prices begin at 7,000 yen for the first 50 minutes.
