In 1993, as he moved to Japan, Trevor Brown visited several Kinbiken-meetings. He wrote about this, and a meeting in 1997, on his blog in a text that gives an interesting view: http://web.archive.org/web/20050312124436/http://www.pileup.com/babyart/kinbiken.htm

Trevor Brown kindly wrote me and added the following information: ”these images mostly copied from old Sanwa books compilations – so rope artist unknown – but almost certainly Nureki-sensei in many cases”. He also provided a link to an interview he did in the 1990s with Masami Akita, also dealing with Kinbiken: http://web.archive.org/web/19970625171403/http://www.tb-art.com/tb-art/html/archive/merzbow_interview.htm

A text by Masami Akita dealing with the history of bondage in Japan can be found online in two parts, here (1): http://www.bondageproject.com/public/history_e1.htm  And here (2): http://www.bondageproject.com/public/history_e2.htm

The section at the end of part (2) deals with Kinbiken, just scroll down.
