Finland to Japan



Kauppahalli(Old Market Hall)
Was a old building which was built in beautiful red brick in 1800s. There were two aisles lined with lots of shops and small restaurants inside of the building.

I saw a small Sushi restaurant and I had lunch there. When I stayed at the restaurant, there weren't any Japanese staff, only a young guy, probably Finnish, making Sushi. Of course, the interior wasn't authentic Japanese style and it looked like a modern looking Japanese restaurant.

I ordered a Sushi combo meal with a bottle of Japanese beer. It cost 16 euro and it was much more expensive than it I ate something similar in Japan. I think the price would be about 7-8 euro, if I ate it in Japan. It was quite delicious but I think it needed more vinegar....

Town light at night
It got much colder at sunset but the town came alive. But it was too cold to go window shopping for me.

I ran from the cold air into my accommodation and I warmed myself with a beer at the restaurant.

I saw a fly in the hotel. How did he survive in such an extreme enviroment? In winter, it was too cold everywhere in Finland.

My purchase at the Old Market Hall
I heard that berry was a very popular fruit in Finland and during the summer and autumn, there were a variety of berries at the market. Unfortunately, berries weren't in season. But I saw several kinds of berries at some shops. Perhaps, they might be imported products...?

I bought a mixed tray of different kinds of berries at the market. I didn't know what kinds of berries they were but everything was delicious.
