Streets full of cars

The streets are narrow, hindering the movement of cars. Sometimes it becomes difficult to find parking space on the street. It's easier to go by subway and walk!

A large store of home products

I like this store called Ten-man-ya, which sits on Estudantes Street. It is big, has many interesting products and I can easily find Japanese cooking utensils, which are very practical.

Brazilian Society of Japanese Culture and Social Welfare

This building is very meaningful in my life. It is in Sao Joaquim Street, close to Sao Joaquim subway station. In Bunkyo, I met very nice people and admirers of Japanese culture. In the same building, are located: Japanese language school, Historical Museum of Japanese Immigration …
