Karin Maruyama : The Eternal Idol on the Stairway of Dreams

Karin Maruyama 2

This might be the first time that your hearing the name Karin Maruyama and if that is the case ,then I am about to introduce you to a most special Idol.
Karin was born in 1993 in Fukushima Prefecture and she goes by the nickname Rin-chan and made her debut in 2012.

Rin-chan is someone that I regard as a most special and true Idol ,because in her short career she had to stop her activities and restart her activities many times because Rin-chan has a brain tumor.

She has not let her health stop her as she has held several solo lives and has recorded her own original song CD that was crowd-funded.
The first thing you notice about Rin-chan is that her smile is heart capturing and no matter how difficult the day maybe for her ,she performs with all her best and gives her fans her beautiful voice and smile and the fans give their best back to her to help her gain strength.

Watching Rin-chan perform is like watching something more than just a live ,you’re watching an Idol in the truest definition , a moment in time that you will always remember ,because her charm and smile washes over you and creates a beautiful and lasting memory.

Karin Maruyama is a true Idol in every way and for the members of this web site and her fans ,she will always be an Idol we wish the best for and keep supporting.

On Feb 7th Karin held a live in Tokyo ,it was her first live in 5 months. She was not able to dance as she was weak from her health. Karin had been in the hospital that morning as the cancer had reached her lungs. However Karin gave no thought to not seeing her fans this night ,as she has put  it  ,she is on the “Stairway to Dream”.


Karin Maruyama , a smiling Idol , a true Idol , the Eternal Idol who brings a smile and inspiration to every fan.



Karin has made her debut single “Eternal Summer” ,through the crowd-funding program camp-fire.jp
