Illative

The Illative (illatiivi) case is part of the internal locative cases. It typically corresponds to the into preposition in English, and usually refers to a change or observation of something going from outside to inside. In Finnish it is indicated by the -Vn suffix, where the V is a vowel followed by an -n.
