Tokyo day 3 – Cat Cafe

After the visit to the Edo-Tokyo Museum, surprisingly not Rascals still had some strengths, so we decided to visit a cat cafe. I don’t like the idea of animals’ cafes at all, but N wanted to go so soo much and we needed some incentive for kids, they were getting more tired and upset about the…

Tokyo day 3 – Edo Tokyo Museum

The good thing about our apartment in Tokyo was that it had several interesting places within a walking distance. And Edo-Tokyo Museum – a really impressive museum! – was one of them.

Helsinki (7/8) – National Gallery Ateneum

One evening after work we visited the National Gallery Ateneum. We had a bit of bad luck – the third floor of the gallery was closed due to the roof renovation. We also had a lot of luck – it was a time when the gallery hosted a very interesting exhibition “The Magic North –…
