Life and career

Born April 4, 1979 in Kanagawa prefecture), as a child Bunko Kanazawa was good at mathematics and science, but bad in Japanese and English studies.[3] Her hobbies as an adult include cooking, snowboarding and karaoke.[4]

Kanazawa made her AV (adult video) debut in 1997.[4] Her stage name, given to her by her agency, is taken from Kanazawa Bunko, a train station, museum and historic library in Kanagawa Prefecture, where she lived at the start of her career. It is sometimes shortened to "Kanabun," a nickname which she herself dislikes.[2]

Much of Kanazawa's film work exemplifies the typical style of classic Japanese adult videos. She does not consider herself a good actress, and has difficulty with a leading role and with adlibbing.[3] In magazine shoots, she often appears dressed as a schoolgirl.[2] Though she dislikes airplane travel, she enjoys filming in overseas locations such as Bali[3] She has also appeared in several unusual fetish films, including Meijiri (女尻), a film which focuses on various manipulations of her posterior.

Sometime in 2005, Kanazawa started making uncensored movies for a studio/website called Tora Tora Tora. This studio is probably located outside Japan, and it is therefore not governed by Japanese censorship laws. These movies are nowhere near the production quality of the ones from Bunko's early career. Some of these recent movies credit her as Fumiko Kanazawa.

Overseas popularity

She has a wide following both inside and outside Japan, particularly in the U.S. and the UK. The UK in particular has always, as evidenced by writers such as Bel Mooney (Daily Mail 9 February 2007), had a very strong schoolgirl uniform pornography subculture, much of it now sold 'under the counter' because of legal concerns. Bunko Kanazawa has become something of a role model for some schoolgirls in the South of England in particular, where they can sell themselves to pornographers keen to exploit the schoolgirl uniform market.

The rumour spread amongst certain amateur photographic circles in the UK in September 2000 that she was shooting a schoolgirl porn film in Alton Towers theme park, and there was surprise (and concern) at the disproportionately large number of lone middle-aged men wandering the park with camcorders asking if anyone had seen a Japanese schoolgirl with a film crew. Several worried parents reported these men to the police, and there is still conjecture as to whether the famous star joined the Alton Towers crowds that day or not. This is believed to have been her only appearance in the UK.
