About

Marin Minamiya

Born in Japan, December 1996.

Marin Minamiya is a Japanese University student who completed The Explorer’s Grand Slam (Seven summits + North & South Pole) in April 2017 as the youngest person in the world.

Marin tries not to define herself solely as a “Mountaineer/Alpinist”.

She was taught by a respected mentor who believed that,

“The past does not determine the present, but the present and future holds power to define the past.”

She says, “Perhaps because I was given the name ‘Marin’, I inevitably feel a deep connection to the sea. I hope to sail around the world one day.” Aside from sailing, she scuba dives and collaborates with marine-volunteer organizations to fight sea desertification.
