The Independence day of Finland at the Finnish embassy of Japan

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.

With my sony that I carry always on me I take all kinds of weird photos so I’ll post some here for y’all !

Saw this Finnair advertising at Asakusa station, actually it looks pretty good well in Japan everything looks good tho. In my honest opinion Finnair sucks, JAL and Airfrance wins Finnair 10-0, but that’s just my opinion I don’t like hearing Finnish that much when I’m flying and the flight attendants are the worst if you ask me.

Okay so many foreigners HATE this part of Tokyo, I do not understand why since I love it ! no matter how full the train be I don’t care. I’m just happy to be here and anything can happen even in the train.

Yesterday evening we had our annual Finnish men Sauna evening here in Tokyo but this time it was totally different since the Ambassador of Finland was kind enough to host this months event for us in the Sauna of Embassy of Finland (which wins the usual spot at Shibuya easily!)

Very beautiful place as well, what else you could expect. that photo was like the lounge so to speak. You can see the shower room there and inside there is a sauna that can fit about 6-8 people I’d say.

Also something else happened that I did not expect, the ambassador had got some Finnish beer and food ready for us and also we had a Japanese man there as well filling our beers so they were never empty. I got a feeling that a Japanese woman would have been in shock seeing so many Finnish men naked/half naked in front of her eyes.

I don’t have a good photo from the balcony but you could see Roppongi hills pretty much from there and also Tokyo tower lighten up.

There was enough alcohol for everyone and I’m sure if it would have ended we could have gotten more. From Finnish (lapinkulta) beer to gin there was everything.

I doubt the Finnish men would like that I would post photos of them relaxing there half naked so I let you use your imagination on that part.

We were there about 2 hours and then we moved to the closest bar which were called Bonds if I am not mistaken and time flew by. I had to go already at 10.30pm because I do live in the other side of Tokyo ( embassy is at Hiroo (hibiya line) and I live in Gyotoku (Tozai line))
