Master “K”’s book, the first ever written and published in English telling the complete story of the remarkable, sensual and provocative world of Japanese erotic bondage, was so well-received that it has been translated into Japanese by Norio Yamamoto for a new edition being published in Tokyo by Suirensha. This highly-respected academic publisher saw great value in Master “K”’s research and scholarship as well as his deep appreciation for this inherently Japanese art form which has been taking the world by storm. Master “K” has told us that he could not be more honored nor more humbled by this turn of events!
The Japanese response to the book has been overwhelming and validating. The publisher hosted a reception in honor of the publication and Master "K" and the amazing guest list included: Arisue Go, Saotome Hiromi, Naka Akira, Urado Hiroshi, Kyodo Miyabi, Sugiura Norio, Miura Takumi, Kanda Tsubaki, Saeki, Hajime Sorayama, Sakai, and Imamaura Megumi!
It was an exciting evening and we hope Master "K" will share an article (or two!) with us on his trip in the near future.
We could not be more proud nor more happy for him!
The Japanese edition is being carried by a number of book stores including the international chain Kinokuniya as well as Amazon.jp and we will also be carrying a few copies.
