Ristorante 12 Apostoli

On our way to Trevi Fountain, we stopped by an Italian restaurant, “Ristorante PizzerĂ­a Forno A Legna 12 Apostoli.”

We ordered spaghetti and drinks. Food tastes were in the middle and price was rather high.

After coming back to Japan, I checked the restaurant on “trip adviser” site; there were many unfavorable reviews. Maybe, I will try another restaurant next time.

Hotel Restaurant in Rome

Massimo D'Azeglio is the name of the hotel we stayed.

All hotel workers, spoke fluent English,  were kind and friendly.

Breakfast at the restaurant was well prepared and delicious every morning.

We could not complain anything at all during our stay.

I saw water outlets on the sidewalk, inside buildings or in the park that were continually running.

It is said that the drinkable free water for these fountains comes directly from the mountains above the city.

Edo Tokyo Museum

Edo Tokyo Museum is a good atruction for visitors to Japan.

These pictures are a few examples of the museum.

During WWII, many residents of the Tokyo downtown areas lived in rooms such as the one in the picture below.

To prevent window glass from shattering during bombing raids, windowpanes were taped.

A special lampshade was used to prevent light from leaking outside.

Steel helmets and other safety gear were kept close by. A radio set was used to obtain information about air raids.
