Hi! I’m a Japanese speaking Local in Helsinki. I’m originally from Japan and have been living in Helsinki region in Finland since 2007.

Through hobbies, activities and work, I spend most of my time in Helsinki. I live in Vantaa, just next to Helsinki. I traveled to Finland and Helsinki two times, in total two months around 10 years ago, before I settled down here a couple of years later.

I find Helsinki very easy and safe and it feels more like my home city than where I’m from! I’ve been learning Finnish culture through my friends in many ways and I enjoy Finnish nature a lot. I’m looking forward to share all this with you!

Favourite spots in Helsinki

saunas, flea markets, antique/second hand shops, Suomenlinna, tea shops and tea rooms and urban nature, and Linko pizza bar in Töölö, where you can enjoy very unique nice tasty Finnish style pizza!

I could take you also to

museums, churches, cafés and around different neighbourhoods

Favourite Finnish food

Karelian pasty, warm smoked salmon, vendace, oat products, rye bread, quark
