"For nearly four years and many quarrels, my partner and I have connected with love. A thousand times we argue and then nine hundred and ninety nine times we make up. In any other circumstances a hundred arguments would end the relationship, ours is connected through rope. Through Kinbaku our love and romance binds our hearts and deepens our connection over time.

Topics of discussion
- Reflection of my forty years of Kinbaku photography, and what's ahead of me
- Tales of adventure and confessions of Shibari of my partner Miho
- The difference of Kinbaku as practiced in Japan and the United States, based on my observations on my visits to the USA.
- Rope work
- Shibari poses or the creation of a story in an image”
