"There are nothing special in Lariano." The family explained me about the city where they living. But, as a photographer and as a visitor, I had no choice to look around the city because this is the place where a gymnast and an Olympian is from. It is quite important to see how the town is, and if the city really boring or not. I believe that every city has got some features definitely and this idea let me go.
Certainly as they have said, there are no entertaining things at Lariano. This is a so to speak rural living area even though the town is in Roma district. Therefore no sightseeing sports, no shopping centres, no places to play. However, while I was walking around the city, I could see lots of interesting stuff there which cannot be seen in Japan. For example, wild dogs which are pretty horrible because they bark and follow me and actually they are likely to bite me. A funny thing was that a sign saying "Torno subito" which never happens in Japan. And some old houses which are very unusual to look at.
Traveling is not only to visit famous spots. Rather, is to get to know what kind of the city is and how people live there. Possibly, have some conversation with local people (accidentally I did) and feel locality. This is what traveling all about.
