There are Metros, Trams, Buses, and trains in Helsinki.
I bought a one day pass for €9.
I asked many people for directions on the road.
Everybody was very nice.
I took the Finnair bus going to the city from the airport.
And on the way back I tried taking the train.
When I went to the train, the door was closed.
I didn’t know I had to push the button to open by myself.
I had a good time in Helsinki.
I would like to visit Finland again.
Next time I want to visit the forest and maybe a sauna.
Helsinki has many parks with a lot of green.
I think Helsinki is a beautiful city.
It is popular among Japanese tourists to go a restaurant called Ravintla Kamone.
Kamome means sea gulls.
That restaurant was actually used as a location for the Japanese movie called “Kamome Shokudo (restaurant)” .
And cinnamon rolls are sold in the neighboring shop, Atelier Kamome.
I love cinnamon rolls.
I went to the Marimekko Herttoniemi Outlet.
The way to go there is you take the Metro to Herttoniemi station.
What I really liked there was that you can have lunch at the company cafeteria which is named Maritori.
Their cups and dishes are made by Marimekko.
I walked along the seaside in Helsinki.
The sea was shining.
And I met many kinds of birds.
It is rare to be able to see swans in Japan.
I thought Helsinki is looks a little bit like Seattle.
I went Hakaniemi market hall.
You can buy food on the first floor, like meat, fish, vegetables and other things.
I bought cherries, apricots and two slices of salmon for dinner.
On the second floor they sell miscellaneous goods.
I bought a couple of interesting post cards.
It was fun to look around.
I like the market very much！
Now I came back to Japan.
On the way home I stayed in Helsinki for two nights.
I will post things about Helsinki before Ireland.
This is Helsinki Cathedral which is located about 4 blocks away from Central station.
It was a fine day, so the white Cathedr al was very beautiful against the blue sky.
There are two more famous churches in Helsinki though I didn’t have time to visit them.
They were Uspenski Cathedral and Temppeliaukion church which is made out of rock.
