Marie Kondo Explains Why Tidying Up Is Such Big Part Of Japanese Culture If there’s one person who knows about tidying up, it’s Marie Kondo. The Japanese tidying expert gained widespread popularity in the U.S. back in 2014, when her first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, was released. The “decluttering guru,” as she’s been dubbed, is now making headlines once again thanks to her newly released Netflix series.

If you’ve jumped on the Marie Kondo train and have spent time tidying up over the last few months, you’re in good company.
