ヘルシンキに行ってきました


7月末から8月にかけての4日間、フィンランドのヘルシンキに行ってきました。主な目的は、同時期に開催されていたコンピューターのイベント「Assembly」を見に行くことだったのですが(Assemblyのレポートはこちら)、ヘルシンキは以前から訪れてみたい場所だったので、短い時間ながらも全力で楽しんできました!


フィンランドに上陸: 飛行機から降りると、そこは雨のヘルシンキ。北欧だから夏でも比較的涼しいのだろうと思っていましたが、ふつうに暑い!ただ、日本のようにむわーんとした暑さではなく、風は涼しいけど日差しで熱い!という感じでした。ちなみに、飛行機はフィンランド航空(Finnair)を利用しましたが、成田からは10時間程度、帰りは9時間弱でした。ヨーロッパといえば12時間ぐらいかかるイメージだったので近い!飛行機で過ごす3時間の差は大きい!客室乗務員さんの制服もかわいかったです。

Dear Diary: Trip to Helsinki

--> 日本語で読む

Earlier this month, I visited Helsinki, Finland for 4 days. Main purpose was to see Assembly, but I did enjoy the city as well! Here are my snapshot diary..


Smooth Landing: The day I arrived was raining of course. (I bring rain everywhere.) Tokyo to Helsinki was about 10 hours, and the way back was less than 9 hours. Closer than any other European cities. I liked the uniforms of Finnair flight attendants.

Party Report: Assembly Summer 2014


Earlier this month, I went to see Assembly Summer 2014!


 Assembly is a demoparty held in Helsinki, Finland since 1992. Although their gaming elements are increasing in recent years, they remain as one of the biggest and longest standing demoparty on this planet. If you go see “demoparty” in Wiki or other kind of references, photos from this party will most likely come up first. (There’s Assembly Winter too, and this one is purely gaming event.)

7月末から8月にかけて開催されたAssembly Summer 2014に行ってきました!


Assembly(アセンブリー)は、フィンランドのヘルシンキで1992年から毎年開催されている世界最大級のデモパーティーです。近年はデモ以外の要素(ゲームとか)がかなり増えてはいるものの、伝統と伝説を持つ場所として、今でもデモシーンの中では特別な存在となっているようです。よくWikipediaなどの「デモパーティー」の欄でAssemblyの写真が例に使われています。(ちなみにAssembly Winterという冬バージョンもあるのですが、こちらはデモシーンとは一切関係がないゲームのイベントとなっています。)
