The Japan Fetish Ball is produced by the Tokyo Kink Society, Japan’s only non profit international group of people interested in fetish, bondage and domination. TKS is modelled along similar groups that exist in North America and Europe and produces a number of fetish theme events including the Oasis Lounge, TKS Underground and the annual Japan Fetish Ball.
After several years of rapid growth, this year’s Ball is moving to Christon Cafe Shinjuku, one of Tokyo’s largest club event venues! The venue is separated into a dance area, stage show area, dungeon / playroom, and a shopping bazaar showcasing independent Japanese and foreign fashion designers.
The Japan Fetish Ball, from the land where S&M, rope bondage and Gothic Lolita all originated, is one of the world’s most unique fetish balls and is distinctly oriental in its content and the conduct of guests.
This year’s Ball, November 14th 2009 features an exotic variety of performers, many never seen before in any western countries.
