ABOUT SENKAKU

Senkaku was founded in 2013 by Milla Reika, one of Osaka’s leading international practitioners in the art of Japanese bondage, as a semi private space for open-minded kinbaku and BDSM enthusiasts. During 10 years of running, Senkaku was an intimate “home” to numerous kinbaku and fetish related events, workshops, and parties which brought together Japanese locals and overseas travelers of all sexual orientations, gender (or non-gender) identifications, and personalities.

While Senkaku sadly closed its doors in July 2023, Milla is continuing to share kinbaku, as she knows it, through more intimate semi-private kinbaku focused afternoons, private lessons, and one-on-one sessions, with the hope of re-opening again in a new location in the future.

"While the decision to close Senkaku Studio was not an easy one, I believe that "Senkaku" is not about the location but about the "spirit" of the people that have come together to make Senkaku what it is. Our events are currently limited, but if you are interested please reach out about private lessons or sessions.”

MILLA REIKA

Residing in Osaka Japan since 2009, Milla’s discovery and pursuits in kinbaku have been synchronous with her immersed study of Japanese culture, language, and sentiments.
 

Her rope style exhibits a blend of ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ elements; possessing power and assertiveness coupled with subtleness, intent, and attentiveness. Each and every rope and movement serves a purpose and intently binds the body within an interplay of control and surrender which unfolds between her and her partner. 

"My kinbaku journey began as an erotic act of inquiry and exploration into desires, sexuality, the other, and oneself. While having earned a reputation for stage performances with theatrical narratives and  dynamic suspensions, in recent years, I have taken my kinbaku back into the private sphere; where it belongs. My kinbaku focuses, not on the aesthetic forms or patterns, but on ‘seme’ and rope as a tool to draw out inherent “beauty” and sensational experiences for my partner, who I bind. Each person is completely unique in their physical makeup, energy, desires, and relationships. And each day or moment, this will change.

"KIZUNA" (Kinbaku Sessions)

Kizuna in Japanese refers to tight bonds between people, and the relationships that we share and deepen together.

Our “kizuna” kinbaku sessions are a semi-private intimate affair aimed predominantly at couples/partners wishing to engage in and explore kinbaku in a quiet, relaxed and intimate setting; curious first timers or solo travelers seeking to gain a glimpse into the world of kinbaku; or those wanting to experience being bound.

Note, that this is not that  a social-focused event or workshop evening, and while we encourage discussion or exchange, try to maintain a safe and quiet environment that allows attendees to delve into and experience of kinbaku, without too much distraction. While it varies month to month, we generally have a about 4~8 people in attendance.

Attendance:
While we try to include everyone, please understand that Milla can only accommodate a select number of people wishing to be bound or seeking advice/tuition. If you are seeking either of the above, please email ahead of time and let Milla know so that she can endeavor to allocate time. If you are traveling alone, please bear in mind that attendee numbers are small and due to the nature of kinbaku,  as practice that requires communication and trust, we may not be able to match you up with a model or partner to practice with. That said, observation can be a great introduction and tool for learning or deepening one's knowledge, so we encourage you to join.

For those seeking concentrated tuition, or a focused experience being bound please contact Milla about private lessons or sessions.


*Please read the FAQ section  for details before attending.
*Kizuna is not a social party/event or workshop evening. While Milla endeavors to offer light instruction and/or experiences being bound, this will be dependent on available time and the number of attendees. Reservation required.

PRIVATE LESSONS: Please inquire directly.

PRIVATE LESSONS

For a deeper exploration or one-on-one learning in Japanese kinbaku and the concepts. Private lessons allow for concentrated and tailored learning based on your motivations, and past experiences. Kinbaku is very individual, not only in motivations but also in application and use binding styles for differing physiques.

Private lesson are generally 2 to 2.5 hours. 
Fees: From 20,000yen (including use of studio and ropes)
(If you are traveling alone and do not have a partner to practice, please notify Milla.)

For those wishing to experience being bound, Milla also offers private sessions (experiences being bound). Kinbaku has many safety concerns and it can be quite daunting for someone who is just starting out or has little experience being bound. Kinbaku sessions aim to offer a safe environment to explore and "taste" what it feels like to be bound.  (*This is not a pro-domme session or adult-service).

Milla is generally available on weekends or during the evening on weekdays. 
Please email with desired dates and times, if you are interested.

Past  Theatre Productions and Kinbaku Videos by Milla Reika. 

Milla's previous theatre productions centered on fusing the elements of kinbaku with other art genres to form a theatrical narrative which explores and expresses the depths and the multiple and sometimes contradicting facets human emotions, desires and relationships. The pain that comes with love and pleasure and the pleasure that may be borne from pain and endurance. The sense of liberation that comes from surrendering oneself; and the compassion and sense of surrender that can be felt subjectively through dominating another.

(Note that Milla Reika no longer practices kinbaku for performance. Please refrain from sending inquiries or requests to attend/view kinbaku performances)
