Miki Takakura (高倉 美貴, Takakura Miki) (born Miki Koshizawa (越沢 美貴, Koshizawa Miki) on December 14, 1960 in Kanazawa, Ishikawa) is a Japanese gravure idol and pink film actress who was active in the 1980s and rose to prominence as Nikkatsu's "SM Queen" (SMの女王, SM no joō) from 1983 to 1985.



When famed Nikkatsu S&M actress Naomi Tani retired in 1979, the studio tried a number of replacements for her including starlet Takakura who was next in line after Nami Matsukawa. Takamura began her career at Nikkatsu with the August 1983 Beauty in Rope Hell, part of Nikkatsu's Roman Porno series, written by noted S&M author Oniroku Dan and directed by Genji Nakamura. Some moviegoers complained that Takakura was too thin for bondage work because the ropes didn't make enough of a visible impression but pink film critics Thomas and Yuko Weisser cite her as one of the best S&M actresses. However, by this time Nikkatsu was at a low point and would close its doors in a few years and the S&M genre films which had supported the studio for a number of years were becoming formulaic and trite.

Takakura retired from the pink film scene after starring in five Roman Porno films written by Oniroku Dan, her final movie for Nikkatsu being the January 1985 Double Rope Torture to which the Weissers give only a one-star rating, calling the film a "stillborn project".

After Nikkatsu

Takakura later pursued a film and TV career, becoming one of the rare Roman Porno actresses (such as Terumi Azuma and Junko Asahina) who were successful in mainstream media. She had a role in the February 1985 mainstream comedy Capone Cries a Lot directed by Seijun Suzuki who had also started his career at Nikkatsu (but in the pre-Roman Porno era). In 1987, she appeared in the second of the long series of Gokudō no onna-tachi gangster films from Toei. She also had a role as a novelist in the June 1995 comedy Tenshi no wakemae.

Takakura released a 96-page nude photobook in December 1993 titled South Fairy Tale photographed by Kenji Ishiguro and published by Scola.

She married tarento Nobuo Harada in 1995.
