In 2018 a TV series debuted on Netflix, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, debuted.
Born on October 9, 1984 in Tokyo, Japan, her zodiac sign is Libra.
Marie cites her religious belief as Shintoism but not in a hardline way.
“I don’t particularly have specific religious connotations to Shintoism in my daily life, but it is true that I did have a part-time job at a Shinto shrine when I was younger, so I think that is what that has to do with it. It is reflected in some ways,” Marie explains.
“So Shintoism, for me, is not particularly a religion in my life, but it is a natural habit in our daily life. Shintoism, for Japanese people, is not the same religious feeling as a lot of American people might feel, but is pretty much blended into our daily lifestyle or habits. It influences me, but not as strongly as you might think.” (1)
Kondo is married to Takumi Kawahara. They have two children.
“A lot of people hit a roadblock because they feel they have to throw something away, but that’s not the point. It’s about understanding what needs to go versus what’s important to you.” (1)
