  1. I remember you had a picture of yourself tied up just like that. Care to share? :D

  2. In truth Mishima never had a body that good – though he did have a good body! Tomatsu Yato, who was a friend of Mishima’s, produced an incredible book ‘Young Samurai’. It’s a collection of young Japanese bodybuilders from the late 1960’s to the early 1970’s. It’s a great book but hard to find now though you can find individual pictures on the internet. Mishima wrote the introduction and there is one picture of him in the book, as he says so the book is not so perfect as to attract the negative attention of the Gods. Right now I’m reading Sun and Steel by Mishima, but it’s really tough going, he doesn’t think or write in a Western way making it hard for Western people to really understand his work. Sorry to add such a long note, you have an incredible body and should be very proud of your discipline and drive.
