Hi, I’m Marek

I’ve lived in Tokyo for 4 years

I speak English, Japanese

I am a Translator


I am a long-term Japanese language and culture scholar with 15+ years invested in the field. During my life I focused on Japan, learning the Japanese language, and learning about Japanese culture, history, philosophy, geography, and society, and I also tried a few traditional arts such as calligraphy, bookbinding, and origami. I enjoy learning about philosophy, sociology, biology, and physics, especially astrophysics. I like to travel and experience new cultures and new food. I am trying to stay up-to-date by watching news and documentaries. My hobbies include listening to music, playing guitar, composing music, creating videos, writing, watching films, and playing video games.
