A man has been arrested for hiring a female high school student for a Tokyo dating service after she allegedly ended up having paid sex with a 45-year-old customer, police said Monday.

The arrest was the first of its kind in Japan under a new Tokyo ordinance that took force in July outlawing the employment of girls under 18 for “JK” services. JK stands for joshi kōsei (female high school students).
