Whereas before this district had a distict Japanese character, it is taken over by Chinese, selling cheap and cheerful made in China. Easy to get good Chinese food as Japanese restaurants are closed outside meal hours!

I was awestruck to see such a crowd of Japanese people living outside Japan. They have sushi all around the place. The Japanese handmande crafts are available at a bargain.

It is said that the first Japanese immigrants in Brazil in 1908 were deployed in the Liberdade neighbourhood, where they formed their first colony. You can feel that presence with many restaurants, shops, services and posters advertising 'sumo' tournaments. No better place, then, to host...More

I have visited this street market on a Saturday as I was told that it only happens on Saturdays by the tourist information centre in Paulista Avenue. The market itself is superb and has loads to offer including traditional Japanese food. Highly recommended

It is advertised as all day, but when I was there it was in the late afternoon and some booths were shutting down. I think it was almost 3:30pm. I was there in January so perhaps it depends upon the season of the year and... More
