    Iida's voice is an embodiment of Marie Condo's aura. She's a great translator. 😊

    She sounded fairly reasonable to me until she said people don't need more than 30 books. I mean, maybe only 300 books would be OK, but 30? Forget it.

    Maybe I'm way off base, and certainly Stephen is an incredible entertainer, but when Marie asks him to vocalize his gratitude for the studio and what it offers him it strikes me as a very appropriate gap between western and eastern philosophy. And this is not to say there is implicit fault with either, but what Stephen says is "Thank you Ed Sullivan," instead of addressing say the desk, or the lights. We have such a strong emphasis on people and human "souls" where as in the east there's a lot more celebration for the "soul" of everything, the soul of a chair, a desk, a bowl, and that reverence I think is what Marie is trying to teach us. Idk, I'm probably over dramatizing it but it's really interesting to watch it play out. And certainly grateful to get to watch their interaction of course.

    I love this woman! She is just so positive and sweet! And, for reference, the only people who can fold fitted sheets are moms. I have no idea why, but it's some hidden secret :D

    This is asian culture. We respect people, living beings and trees. We see life as interconnected where religions like Christianity tells that human being is the supreme being

    I half-expected Jon Stewart to come bumbling out from under that desk during their cleaning it up.

    What a lovely and charming woman Marie Kondo is! I miss being in a culture that values things beyond their financial worth.

    LOVE you Stephen; you are brilliant, funny, ethical, witty, incisive and adorable! (Fair to say this after, I don’t know how many years of watching you).
    Forgive the nit pickiness, but I know you are precise, so I just wanted to clarify that translators work with the written word, and interpreters are oral. Simultaneous interpretation is what you’d think; verbalized as the person speaks.

    Watched how Ellen treated her and it was really cringey to watch her refusing to understand Marie, not only does Stephen show respect but he actually listens to her and wants to hear what she has to say👏❤

    So enjoyable. I think that if decluttering can be seen as an exercise in "joyfulness" it certainly will be done each day. So many people find tidying up to be drudgery.
