Miura Takumi and Akechi Denki: Bakuyukai Vol 1


In 1996, Miura Takumi and Akechi Denki founded Bakuyukai, an “association of bondage lover” and a dojo dedicated to teaching the techniques of Akechi Denki’s style of shibari.

Their work together led the creation of a four volume video series in 2004 (released in 2005) that cataloged and demonstrated a series of key ties that were at the center of the Akechi style.

Unfortunately, Akechi passed away before the project could be completed, but Miura san continued the series.

This volume features both Akechi and Miura tying and teaches the first three ties:

  • gote shibari 後手縛り
  • hishinawa shibari 菱縄縛り
  • kikkō shibari 亀甲縛り

This video has been hard to find even in Japan.  JapaneseBound is now, by special arrangement with Miura Takumi, able to off the entire series as a digital download for the first time.
