Create an itinerary including Liberdade
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.
