About Muza-chan (36 articles)

Introduction

I started the muza-chan.net website in November 2007, a few weeks after my first trip to Japan. At the time, I had in mind a travel journal, written for my Romanian friends. But after a while I received a lot of questions, so I also started to write about the Japanese customs and traditions I observed. Soon, I added several other topics, like history, travel tips, pop-culture…

During the last 7 years, I visited Japan about a month per year… somehow I feel at home there, as if a part of my soul was always there. It is a place I love and where I feel loved…

I want to show you the Japan that I see and many times I feel that I can do more through photos than through words...

Why Muza-chan?

Muza was a nickname I received during college. In Romanian, "muza" means muse, but my nickname is unrelated to this… Anyway, the nickname stuck with me and then, because of my interest in Japan, the Japanese diminutive suffix "chan" was added, hence Muza-chan!
