🇬🇧 Hello, this is Chikako. I am 25 years old from Japan. What made me decide to take this interior design course? It all started when I left the company last year. Originally, when I was 18, I went to an interior design vocational school for three years. I got a job at a jewelry company and had a gap of 2-3 years at my previous job. I was looking for a school where I could study abroad because I wanted to learn how to use colors and how to use interiors in a culture that is completely different from Japan. Then I found the Accademia Riaci website, saved up a year, and took a summer course. For a few weeks, I want to find a different perspective in Italy, the city of art.

🇯🇵 こんにちは、ちかこです。日本出身の25歳です。 私がこのインテリアデザインのコースを学ぶ事になったきっかけは 去年、会社を退職したことがきっかけです。元々18歳の時にインテリアデザインの専門学校に3年間通っていたのですがジュエリー会社に就職し前職で2〜3年ブランクが空いてしまった為転職活動の幅を広げるためにも勉強しなおそうとした事がきっかけです。日本とは全く違った文化での色の使い方やインテリアの使い方などを吸収したいと思い海外で学べる学校を探していました。そしてアカデミアリアチのサイトを見つけ一年貯金をしサマーコースを受けます。数週間ですが芸術の街イタリアで変わった視点を見つけていきたいです。

Interior Design Summer Course (n.2)

🇬🇧 Have you been to the Central Market in Florence? We went for a walk in search of truffle pasta recommended by our Japanese interpreter. When I was looking for it, it was on the second floor! As I heard, it was very delicious and shocking!! The price is also surprisingly cheap at about 22€. If you come to Florence, you definitely want to eat it.
🇯🇵 フィレンツェの中央市場に行ってきました。日本語の通訳さんにお勧めしていただいたトリュフパスタを探しに散策へ。探していると二階にありました!聞いていた通りとっても美味しくて衝撃でした!!値段も22€くらいで安くてびっくりです。フィレンツェに来たら絶対に食べていただきたいです。

🇬🇧 I went to the Leaning Tower of Pisa on a cultural visit. Pisa in the scorching heat was amazing. It took about an hour from Santa Maria station. When you climb up, you can see that it is tilted. It went by faster than I expected, but everyone was out of breath lol
🇯🇵 カルチャービジットではピサの斜塔に行ってきました。灼熱の中のピサはすごかったです。サンタマリア駅から1時間ほどで着きました。登ってみると傾いてるのが分かります。上までは思っていたよりもあっという間でしたが、みんな息切れでした笑 荷物は預けないといけないので水を持っていくのが必須です。

🇬🇧 Since the time to climb the Pisa tower was fixed, I visited the inside of the cathedral until the time. It is a spectacular sight when you enter inside. It is a breathtaking beauty with very fine carvings. If you buy a Pisa ticket, you can see this for free. Please be careful that you can’t put it inside if you wear sleeveless or shoulder-protruding clothes.
🇯🇵 ピサに登るのは時間が決まっていたので、時間まで大聖堂の中を見学してきました。中に入ると圧巻の光景です。とても細かい彫刻に息を呑む美しさです。ピサのチケットを買うとここは無料で見られます。ノースリーブなど肩が出た服だと中に入れないので気をつけてください。

🇬🇧 I’m used to school. The stairs leading to the classroom are lined with works from various courses, so it’s fun just looking at them.
🇯🇵 学校にも慣れてきました。教室まで行く階段には色んなコースの作品が並べられているので、見ているだけで楽しいです。

🇬🇧 I like the sea very much, so I went to the sea in Italy after school. I was surprised that it was quite deep in a place like a rocky place rather than a beach. It took about 2 hours to get to the beach by train. On the way back, the train stopped and it didn’t come. The train platform changes suddenly, so I’m staring at the electronic bulletin board lol.
🇯🇵 私は海がとっても好きなので学校終わりにイタリアの海にも行きました。ビーチというより岩場のようなところで結構深くてびっくりしました。海までは2時間くらい電車に乗りました。帰り際電車が止まってしまいなかなか来ずでした。電車の乗り場などが急に変わったりするので電光掲示板との睨めっこです笑。

🇬🇧 The area around the sea is very quiet and there are gelato shops and clothes on the way. Gelato was about 2€ and it was about 5€ in Florence, so I realized that everything in the tourist area is expensive.
🇯🇵 海周辺はとっても長閑で途中途中にジェラート屋さんや洋服などが並んでいます。ジェラートは2€程でフィレンツェでは5€くらいしたので観光地はなんでも高いんだなと実感しました。

🇬🇧 I pass by the Duomo every day on my way to school and it is beautiful no matter how many times I see it. It is a very beautiful road to go to school. The Duomo at sunset is also exceptional.
🇯🇵 毎日学校へ行くのにドゥオーモの横を通るのですが何回見ても綺麗です。とっても美しい通学路です。夕焼けにあたるドゥオーモはまた格別です。

🇬🇧 The apartment drawing is gradually finished, and I hope to be able to do 3D next week.
🇯🇵 アパート図面もだんだん仕上がってきて来週には3Dができたらいいなと思っています。
