Kurogami & Shiawase are a couple since 2014 and they live in Milan, Italy.

Their passion for Japanese rope bondage started at the end of 2016, when they met for the first time Riccardo Wildties and Red Sabbath. They got fascinated and they started their own journey.

In February 2018, Kurogami became a certified instructor of Kinbaku LuXuria style, definitely matching Riccardo’s educational values.

Since then, Kurogami and Shiawase started to teach and perform all around Italy and Europe. In 2019 they had the honor to be invited to perform at the 25th Nawa Naka Kai hosted by Naka Akira in Tokyo, together with Riccardo and Naka-san himself.

Kurogami & Shiawase’s style is plain and simple, most of the time tends to be something overt-ied but felt. Their research is about how to achieve a meaningful session both in terms of communication and aesthetics, trying not to emulate the Japanese masters but instead attempting to continue a tradition by adding their own contribution and flavor.
