Liberdade, Sao Paulo

(7,500+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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.

  • Freedom is great, for more visit always, always has something new, but you have to explore a little. Great place for meals and to find different food and drink markets. The weekend is still too full!

  • A little piece of the Orient in São Paulo. Is it bad to Park, but have subway stations and several bus lines that serve the region. The handicraft market in the FDS is pretty cool. Recommend.

  • Meet the Liberdade, its shops and restaurants is one of the "Must See" more relevant to the city of São Paulo. Basically: NOT To BE MISSED. I've been to Japan, and many places of Galvão Bueno and neighborhoods resemble a lot. Don't miss!!
