Thank you for your question
I shall do my best to help you
I am afraid that you have no rights until the baby is born and accordingly there is no basis on which you can prevent your partner from leaving.
Once the baby is born you can apply for contact to the courts in Japan
However disappointing I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further information

Would there be access under THE HAGUE CONVENTION as it has been just passed by the Japanese Parliament BUT NOT PASSED in to Law yet -probably by Christmas


Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
The Hague Convention would not be relevant at all - the child would have been born in Japan and would be subject to standard Japanese Family law
