Update on HSJ and making headlines everywhere

Hey!Say! underage member smoking, entertainment activities stopped indefinitely

Official statement:
Today, there are some news articles, which we validated with Morimoto Ryutaro himself. He admits that he has smoked out of curiosity on several occassions before. Although he is very sorry for his behaviour and in self-scrutiny, however underage smoking as a violation of the law is common knowledge and an unacceptable behaviour. Our company has always placed emphasis on educating them in this regard. To face the facts, from now on, Morimoto will cease all of his activities in the entertainment field indefinitely.
We sincerely apologize for the trouble caused to all fans and related persons.

Does that mean an 20 year old could have sex with a 12 and 13 year old and it's okay?

I asked my friend about this, they said no it just means they can have sex with each other at that age but not people older :/ Wtf.

National age constant is 13 but some prefecture are 18.

Regarding your question, I think you can find the answer in this 2 articles :
