Featured Neighbourhood
Oriental Street, also known as the Free Zone, has a distinctive oriental culture. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Brazilian government attracted a large number of laborers from Asia through corresponding policies, an important part of which was immigrants from Japan. These immigrants are now gathered in Oriental Street of Sao Paulo. From the banks of the street to the shrines in the depths, all of them are Japanese-style, and even the street lights have integrated the elements of the torii. In addition to Japanese descendants, there are many descendants of Chinese and Koreans living in this neighborhood, and there are many Chinese-run restaurants, shops and travel agencies.

Monument
Museum
The Sao Paulo Independence Park is made up of museums, gardens, Independence Square and the Independence Monument. In August 1989, it was declared one of the archaeological and cultural heritage of Brazil. In 1822, Brazil declared independence in Sao Paulo. In front of the museum, the Independence Square and the monument we saw were built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of independence. The characters and bronze statues on the tablet are commemorating Pedro I and famous people who contributed to the independence of Brazil. The basement of the monument houses the coffin of King Pedro and the Queen. The flame of the monument does not go out all the year round, echoing the Brazilian flag fluttering in the wind.
