Marina Sun

Hi, my name is Marina. I'm originally from Germany, but right now I am living with my husband in Japan. This country has fascinated me ever since my father told me about his experiences while working there in the 80s. I studied East Asian Studies, came to Japan for my semester abroad and fell in love not only with the country, but also with my husband. I am currently writing about our life in Japan at "I lost my heart in Japan" and since sharing the beauty of this country is such a big part of my life, I am excited to be able to take you on a walk with me through VoiceMap.
