Period: Sept 1,2016- Sept 30,2017


I am an intern photographer and assistant at Accademia Riaci.
I quit my job as a photographer in Japan and came here with my husband who wanted to work at a restaurant in Italy. I took a Gelato Internship Course at Accademia Riaci meanwhile.
After my new challenge, however, I began to think that there was more possibility in the photography field in Italy so I decided to go back to my area of expertise and restart.
I love coffee, so I enjoy visiting coffee bars in and around town.
I hope I can let you know useful and helpful Italian daily-life and school information in my reports.

Internship 14-Internship Course 2016

映画館の横に併設されたDitta Artigianaleの3号店に行ってきました。
Ditta Artigianale
Via Camillo Benso Cavour 50

I visited the third Ditta Artigianale in Italy, which opened right next to the movie theater.
This a bit Americanized coffee shop serves very good coffee.
They are very particular about coffee beans to use, and they serve hand-dripped coffee that is very rare in Italy.
Although not widely known, the top barista in Japan is connected with this shop, so their latte art is beautiful.
It would be really great to spend a relaxing day-off with a nice cup of cappuccino after watching a movie.

The other day, I enjoyed a hot pot.
As a matter of fact, it was my first hot pot in my whole life. I was totally satisfied as I was able to eat various unfamiliar ingredients that sounded good for my health. I recommend boiled gyoza (dumpling) in the hot pot.


There are many scenic spots here in Florence perfect for taking pictures.
I find it my happiest time to see this kind of views with my close friends during coffee break or happy hour.
