    Liberdade is the Japanese area of Sao Paulo. There are more Japanese in Liberdade than their are Japanese in any city outside of Japan. And have they turned that area into a beautiful oasis. While Liberdade has always been associated with the Japananese, I saw Chinese and Korean restaurants when I visited Liberdade a couple of years back.
