Welcome to Nawapedia!


Nawapedia is an online encyclopedia of Japanese bondage and related kinky activities.

Nawapedia aims to bring information about Japanese SM to a wider audience. Much of this information, because of the language barrier, has heretofore been inaccessible to the majority of non-Japanese interested in the subject.

Nawa means rope in Japanese and Nawapedia will be focusing primarily on Japanese rope artists (kinbakushi), writers, photographers, performers, etc.

At this time, we are primarily concentrating on getting the material in Japanese on SMpedia translated into English for Nawapedia. If, however, you are interested in contributing new articles, we are open to this. The subject, of course, should be related to Japanese SM and the writing must follow the Nawapedia format. Entries must be written from an objective point of view, citing sources whenever applicable. Entries containing self-promotion are subject to editing or deletion.

(Nawapedia's logo and the picture at the left use the art work of Toshiyuki Suma.)


  • We are always grateful for the help of volunteer translators on SMpedia.
