Hanami in Helsinki / Hanami en Helsinki / Hanami à Helsinki / Hanami em Helsínquia

In English:

Hanami means flower viewing, but in practice in Finland, it is admiring cherry blossom (Sakura).

Hanami feast is held, in Roihuvuori in Helsinki. We visited Hanami on Sunday, 21 May. Best way to reach is taking Metro from Helsinki and get off the metro at Herttoniemi metro station. When coming out of metro, look for a big water tower, it is there. Then You have to walk about 2 km / 1.2 mi and You are there among 150 flowering cherry trees. If this instruction seems too complicated, then follow the flow of the people, which came by metro or busses. For us it was easy to reach, because we took a walk lasting 45 minutes.

Hanami feast offers also many kind of things like ikebana, origami, Budo performances and much more. Many families love picnics on lawn. My wife’s and my photos show cherry trees in full bloom and what we saw when buzzing around the area.

En español:

Hanami significa ver flores, pero en la práctica en Finlandia, es admirar la flor de cerezo (Sakura).

Hanami fiesta se celebra, en Roihuvuori en Helsinki. Visitamos Hanami el domingo, 21 de mayo. La mejor manera de llegar es tomar el metro desde Helsinki y bajar del metro en la estación de metro de Herttoniemi. Al salir del metro, busque una gran torre de agua, ya está allí. Luego tienes que caminar unos 2 km / 1,2 mi y allí estás entre 150 cerezos en flor. Si esta instrucción te parece demasiado complicada, entonces siga el flujo de la gente, que vino en metro o autobuses. Para nosotros fue fácil de alcanzar, porque nuestra paseo tomo solamente 45 minutos desde nuestra casa.

Fiestas Hanami ofrece también muchos tipos de cosas como ikebana, origami, actuaciones Budo y mucho más. Muchas familias les encanta picnics en el césped. Mi esposa y mis fotos vos muestran cerezos en plena floración y lo que vimos cuando caminamos alrededor de la zona.

En francais:

Ensuite, vous devez parcourir environ 2 km / 1,2 mi et vous êtes là parmi 150 cerisiers à fleurs. Si cette instruction vous est trop compliquée, suivez le flux des gens, qui sont venus en métro ou en bus. Pour nous, c’était facile d’atteindre, car nous avons fait une promenade d’une durée de 45 minutes de chez nous.

Hanami fête offre également beaucoup de choses comme ikebana, origami, Budo performances et bien plus encore. Beaucoup de familles aiment les pique-niques sur le gazon. Les photos de ma femme et mes photos montrent des cerisiers en pleine floraison et ce que nous avons vu lors de notre pomedade autour de la région.

  1. I wonder, do the cherry fruits mange to ripen in Finland? Were there bees around the trees? I couldn’t notice any, is perhaps the climate too cold in the region?
    Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos!

    • Hello Judith.

      Thank You commenting. I discussed the matter with my wife and we came to this solution. Our spring and summer has been delayed due to the exceptional cold weather, which meant that many nights were freezing point. Hanami was postponed one week due to the cold weather. We did not see any other buzzy bugs except some common brimstone. In our small garden (1993-2012), we had some cherry trees and we could eat some cherries.

      Have a good day!

        I would have thought to temperatures to be too cool for cherries to ripen, but clearly it was a wrong assumption on my side!
        I’m glad I was wrong, as cherries are sooo nice to eat 🙂
        Have a lovely Sunday!

  18. Wonderful to see all the cherry trees and millions of blossoms! Isn’t it nice that these trees accept also lower temperatures so that even countries right up in the North can enjoy such fluffy pink blossoms in spring? Your photos are great!
    Since many, many years Hamburg is celebrating an annual Japanese cherry blossom festival as a sign of affinity and a sign of friendship between Japan (respectively Japanese people living here) and Hamburg. Close to the Alster lake, the Japanese citizens even organize beautiful fireworks at this occasion.
    I think nowadays more and more people tend to call it Hanami, like in Japan (or like you in Finland). Matti, even if we are late with Hanami due to the local climate and cannot see blossoms as early as in Japan, and even if it still has to be postponed due to a rather cold spring, it finally is such a joy to see it. And obviously quite a lot of people came to have a closer look ….^^ Thanks for showing your impressions of Hanami in Helsink!

    May I take this opportunity to thank you here on your blog very, very much for your friendly words and your kind wishes for my husband (and me). It’s a rather serious situation. We hope that chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy are able to help …

    Sending warm regards up to the North! Have a nice week!

Modern medicine had advanced nowadays very much and let us hope that it can help Your husband. I pray also for Your husband’s recovery every night before sleeping.

There were many Japanese ladies. Address is:

      Kirvesmiehenkatu 7, Herttoniemi. From Helsinki by metro only 10 minutes and walking from Herttoniemi metro, station about 5 – 10 minutes.

      Welcome again to Helsinki.
