Finland to Japan



Was a big museum about people and nature in the arctic circle. There were lots of exhibits about the culture and the history of people in the arctic circle. I saw how people had lived in such an extreme environment. There were several kinds of stuffed animals and they were really interesting. Most surprising of all was a stuffed elk(moose) and the height was about 2m! I heard that the elk was the largest deer species and they usually became a hazard for drivers. There were road signs to be aware of elks!

At the entrance, reindeers(?) led you into the museum.

The roof was glassed-in for natural lighting and it was a spacious building. It is a good place to kill time if you have nothing to do in Rovaniemi.

A stuffed polar bear, which was a native bear around the Arctic pole. They had a special kinds of body hair and their ears were very small against the extreme clold.

This was one of the most interesting exhibits. You can change the temperature on the display and you can see the snow crystal depending on the temperature. This is a snow crystal at -6 degrees Celsius.

There was a Japanese brochure for the museum. It was very useful, ...but there was a few unnatural phrases in places and I laughed to my self.

When I went out of the museum in the evening, the rain had turned to snow. It was snowing harder and the streets were covering in a lot of snow in every moment....

As the streets were covering with snow, children began to get in snow sleds.
