Japan faces significant challenges with human trafficking, manifesting in labor exploitation, particularly among foreign technical interns and students, and the sexual exploitation of Japanese nationals, including coercive involvement in the adult entertainment industry. Despite being a developed nation, Japan is a destination, source, and transit country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking. The Japanese government has acknowledged the issue and is taking measures to combat it, yet the problem persists, with civil society organizations like Not For Sale Japan actively working to raise awareness, support victims, and promote ethical consumption to combat these human rights abuses​​.

Not For Sale Japan (NFSJ) is dedicated to eradicating modern-day slavery and human trafficking within Japan and across the globe. With a clear aim to inform, educate, and engage the public, NFSJ is a beacon of hope and action in the fight against this global scourge.


NFSJ conducts various activities to raise awareness of human trafficking, emphasizing its global and local presence and encouraging public involvement.
