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.

先日、イタリアのルッカで行われた「Lucca Comics & Games: Edizione 2016」 に行ってきました。
ちょうどハロウィンの時期とも重なって、普段は穏やかな小さなこの街も町中、 コスプレイヤーと仮装をした人たちで溢れます。
そして今回は、日本を代表するゲームFINAL FANTASYのイベントが初参入!

I visited “Lucca Comics & Games; Edizione 2016” held in Lucca.
This event is held at the end of October every year, and many anime and game fans gather.
Since it was a Halloween season as well, this usually a quiet town was filled with cosplayers and disguised people.
The quality of their costumes and disguises were surprisingly high.
This year, there was a booth featuring “FINAL FANTASY” from Japan for the first time here.
It was so popular that people made a long line to wait. Producers and staffs came all the way to Italy so fans were really impressed.

私が気になって真っ先に向かったのは”JAPAN TOWN”、 日本の文化が紹介されたり、日本のグッズがたくさん売られていました。

I was so proud to see many cosplayers wearing Japanese anime costumes.
In this event, you purchase a ticket to enter various booths.
I went to “JAPAN TOWN” in the beginning. There Japanese culture was introduced and many Japanese goods were being sold.
And of course, there were Japanese cartoon and anime books translated into Italian. It might be good for Japanese people learning Italian language.
This event was really exciting even for non-anime manias.
