Instead of Chinatown, in Sao Paulo there’s Japantown, locally called Liberdade. This part of town is the world’s largest Japanese community outside of Japan. The district includes a significant population of Chinese and Koreans, and features numerous Asian shops, markets, bars, and restaurants. The area is also noted for housing the Museum of Japanese Immigration in Brazil, narrating the story of the first Japanese settlers who came to work on the region’s sprawling coffee plantations. Be sure to stop by the iconic entrance into the district, which offers a convenient photo opportunity with its tall red torii, a Japanese arch usually marking entrances into Shinto temples. Put Liberdade on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sao Paulo vacation trip planner.

  • Is the Japanese district in São Paulo, but you can tell it's generally because oriental also has great Chinese and Korean restaurants. Have an adventure fair on the weekends. Two beautiful Japanese Gardens in the open and niponica lighting.. It also has mini malls where you buy kimonos, knives, domestic utensils and two beautiful Japanese groceries for mushrooms, vegetables, sauces and cooking ingredients. A stroll through its streets and shops is delicious with many options.
