Honey Room Sentence Eliminated

Earlier today a Tokyo High Court eliminated the suspended prison sentence given to Montonori Kishi of Shobunkan for his title Misshitsu (Honey Room). Kishi must still pay a 1.5 million yen fine (approximately $13,750 USD) for publishing the explicitly sexual material. The court under presiding Judge Kenjiro Tao did find the material to be indecent, and Kishi's lawyers plan to appeal that part of the ruling.
