Liberdade (Bairro da Liberdade) Tours

1 Review
Liberdade (Bairro da Liberdade)
Home to the world’s largest Japanese population outside Japan, the Sao Paulo district of Liberdade (Bairro da Liberdade) is a densely-populated neighborhood that’s a popular spot for locals and tourists looking to get a taste of Japanese culture and cuisine in Brazil.

Liberdade was settled in the early to mid-20th century by Japanese immigrants brought to Brazil to work in the coffee plantations around Sao Paulo. Since 1970, many people of other Asian ethnicities, especially Chinese and Koreans, have also moved into the area.

Marked by the nine-meter tall red Torii (Japanese Shinto arch) on Rua Galvão Bueno, and lined with Japanese-style street lamps, Liberdade offers a similar feel to other little Tokyo’s around the globe. It’s a particular draw to young Paulistano manga and anime enthusiasts, who are often seen dressed up as cosplay characters almost any day of the week, but especially on weekends.

The streets of Liberdade are filled with vendors and shops selling all varieties of Japanese and Asian goods including food, clothes, bags, shoes, and anime. On weekends, the Liberdade Street Market is an especially good place to find oriental handicrafts, as well as other street market goodies.

Practical Info

Liberdade can be easily be reached by subway via the Liberdade station on Blue Line 1. The weekend Liberdade Street Market is in full swing from 9am-6pm Saturdays and Sundays.
Address: Liberdade, São Paulo, Brazil

Liberdade & Bixiga Street Food Tour (Italian & Japanese cuisine and much more)

Did you know that Sao Paulo hosts the biggest Japanese community outside Japan and the biggest Italian community in the world? Liberdade, place with a strong and very long history, once place of executions and militar district, became about 100 years ago the place of settlement of the Japanese immigrants. ​Bixiga, once a area of Afro-Brazilian resistance was occupied around the 40's by Italians from Calabria, running away from the misery and the horrors of the II World War This 2 neighborhoods, very close to each others, are erroneously and simply considered the Japanese and Italian neighborhoods of Sao Paulo, while they're actually places of great ethnic diversity! ​All this diversity can be very well synthesized in its peculiar and different cuisine. ​Ready to taste Japanese pastel with sugar cane juice, discover about Brazilian sushi and get a sandwich of carne louca before to end with a cannoli ;)
