Personal sessions with Kasumi


Kasumi Hourai is the leading female Japanese Kinbakushi. At 18 she became an SM club domina, before taking instruction from Akechi Denki when she was just 20 years old. She has been a professional in the business for 24 years, taking further training in tying and modelling with Akira Naka. She has taught in Japan, Europe and America.


Kasumi’s wabi-sabi style is heavily influenced by a profoundly traditional upbringing. She brings a refined, haunting aesthetic, combining elements of kyokuero (eroticism) and ku (suffering). The deep impact of Kasumi-san’s teachings also appeals to male tops who can learn much about the subtleties of the feminine touch in rope bondage and erotic pleasure.

Weekend Workshop Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 May

Kasumi Hourai is today's leading female Kinbakushi in Japan. The combination of her traditional upbringing and study of authentic and modern rope practice in Japan give her teachings a unique perspective. She will share her views on TK, semenawa, armbinders and the importance of being in the moment. Prepare for a fusion between rope bondage, its Japanese origins, and the personal mindset of a leading Japanese instructor!

Shibari Night Special Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 May

The weekend of Pentecost 2024, we will not organize one, but two Shibari Night Specials! Both nights, Kasumi will bring us a performance packed with traditional and theatrical Japanese elements. Each performance will have a different theme. After the show, Shibari Lounge is all yours to enjoy the ropes and the company of your fellow shibari enthusiasts! Register below for the Shibari Night Special of your choice.
