Kinbaku Sniper


Welcome to Ai Nawa, we import kinbaku and shibari books directly from Japan and offer great deals on hard to find and out of print books, magazines, and videos featuring all of Japan’s top rope bondage artists such as Akira Naka, Arisue Go, Nureki Chimuo and Akechi Denki.  Our kinbaku and shibari books are often out of print and extremely difficult to find in the US.

Our goal is to provide access to the most beautiful art books, hard to find how to books, instructional guides, and tutorials, and the latest bondage magazines to help our readers stay current with trends in Japanese rope bondage.  We are also constantly on the lookout for rare books by artists such as Itoh Seiu, Namio Harukawa, and Nawa Yumio each of which offer a rich and historical perspective on rope bondage and the historical context of kinbaku.

We have been importing books and rope since 2012 and have built an extensive set of contacts in Japan who are working closely with us to help find classic art books and hard to find titles.  We offer a full range of titles, with more than 100 different books in stock to help any kinbaku or shibari enthusiast built their library.

Many of the kinbaku and shibari books we offer are long out of print and often represent important aspects of kinbaku culture or highlight the work of particular bondage rope masters, photographers, or kinbaku models.  Because we are working with out of print books, our inventory fluctuates.  All books listed on Ai Nawa as “in stock” have copies available.  Once we sell out, we are never sure when (or if) we will be able to get additional copies.
