Hi! My name is Marion. Thank you for visiting my blog! I am writing about Japanese culture, art and literature. I was living  in Japan for some years  and travelled through the country many times since 1988. Apart from my living  and travel experiences in Japan I hold a doctor’s degree in Japanese Studies. Currently I work as a freelance writer and translator of Japanese to German and English in Berlin.

All articles are written by myself. This is a non-commercial blog and it is aimed to present my view of this beautiful and interesting culture and share it with you. Enjoy!

  1. Marion, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. I am a long time fan of traditional Japanese culture. Really like your blog. My favorite all-time read is The Old Capital by Yasunari Kawabata.

  2. Hi, Marion.
    So glad to have found you. I love Japanese culture and plan to check on it regularly. Have finished reading The Makioka Sisters (see comment in your review) and would appreciate your recommendation on the japanese author we should read next.

    • Hi Zulma Rivera, thank you very much. I am happy, that you like to read Japanese literature. I made a reading list of my favorite Japanese books here on the blog, which is of course just a selection. Maybe you find something you like. My next book review will be on Mishima Yukio. At the moment I am very busy, therefore I can read not so much. I wish you a nice day in San Juan.

  4. Hi Marion

    I really like your blog and have been following it for some time. I love its elegant simplicity. As I’ve just posted my first two articles on Japan, I thought I’d get in touch. I’ve had you on my links page since I started.

    My main blog is breadtagsagas.com (the wp one is subsidiary).

    Regards Tony
