If the Japanese are known for anything, it's their eccentricity. Take, for example, their fascination with school girls: from hentai anime to used panties in vending machines, now there's even a 33-member music act modeled after one of the country's most popular girl group.

Araki became well-known for his depictions of Kinbaku, a Japanese style of bondage that uses ropes tied in intricate patterns. And at 75 years old, he has shown little sign of slowing down. Today, we take a look at his new photo series showcasing a surprisingly palatable selection of imagery -- a far cry from Araki's full-blown pornography. See above and learn more via AnOther.
