My name is Marie, I grew up in a small village of Alsace, France, and have been living in Italy and Sweden. For the passed ten years my husband Hiroshi and I have set our nest in Wakoshi, a few steps away from wonderful Tokyo. I work in a neuroscience research institute and am a jewelry designer and vintage collector in my free time. I love taking long strolls in a new areas of town, visiting flea markets, exhibitions, digging into books, cooking and eating delicious food, going out with my camera and simply getting curious about what surrounds me. Japan has it all!
