Author Is it safe to use mangadex or similar manga sites in Japan?

I've heard that piracy laws in Japan are strict and in some cases you could face even jail time for downloading a video, so, does anyone know if there's anything on that for reading manga online?

Generally it's uploaders who have to be careful. Readers are fine.

I was actually in Japan recently with my laptop and was able to use it just fine.

You will be fine reading. (it might be blocked though. . . . so try it out)

Do not download it in Japan while there if you're worried. Definitely do not upload in Japan, especially without a Vpn, that would be stupid.
