Couple of days ago I went to the Independence day party at the Finnish embassy of Japan. The Finnish embassy is huge compared to the other embassies I have been in other countries.
Of course my girl and I dressed up for the occasion, my girl was going to wear kimono for the party but since just to put it on costs 10,000 yen and was a bit difficult to find a place to do it in such a hurry so dress was a better choice.
Sadly it was a rainy day so of course had to bring an umbrella.
The party it self was great, a lot of people (much more than I was expecting) and of course open bar with wine,champagne and we can’t forget the Finlandia vodka.
Food at the party was delicious, what else could you expect from the embassy. A lot of Finnish christmas dishes with christmas ham as well.
Since the world famous game that you might have heard of called Angry birds is now hitting well in the Japanese market, the party was filled with angry birds merchandise and even a it’s own “game room” and cupcakes.
To me the party was a huge success, met many interesting people and old friends.
Need to try to make that a party to visit early ! Everything was free of course !
