This neighborhood is a great place to go on a Sunday morning. Restaurants, stores, markets- you can find everything oriental there. On Sundays, they have, on the main square, ladies writing names and wishes in Japanese to be kept in your wallet for good luck.

You know when you are in Liberdade proper as the street lamps get fancy. That's about it, I didn't get much of a Japanese feel, I guess the best time to visit would be for a festival or occasion in the Japanese calendar when the...More

I wasn’t aware of the Japanese story with São Paulo but am now. Very interesting place to visit. You cannot visit without having some magnificent sashimi though!

As the largest Japanese community outside of Japan,
Liberdade offers a variety of shops with Asian
products and restaurants with diverse Asian cuisines.
Liberdade is a world unto its own - you may forget you
are in São Paulo. The streets are decorated with red
lamps and there are various markets. On the weekends,
there is a great street fair at Liberdade Square,
starting right by the subway entrance. The Oriental
