There is a large Japanese immigration in Sao Paulo. The district of Liberdade is considered Sao Paulo's little Japan!

Liberdade

I've seen others in Sao Paulo say it's about 400,000. Still a sizable community and probably the largest Japanese community outside of Japan. When did the majority of the immigration take place?

1900-1910 and 1940-1950. Reasons: harsh life conditions (1900) and after World War 2 (1940). I guess they came to Brazil because it was one of the countries that offered best conditions for this people to live nicely that time (the majority of the japanese-brazilians today are middle or high classes) and had less racism or stuff like that.

Actually, it's pretty more than 1 million. Japanese people are spread all over Brazil middle-south region, altho they concentrate more in Sao Paulo and in the north of the Parana State. Even in my city, which is in the middle of the country and far from Sao Paulo, there are quite some. There were 2 japanese girls (hotties ) in my class this year.

In the 1950's and 1960's Brazil was growing at about 10% a year. I don't know what happened that damaged the economy so badly.

Probably because of military coups and military dictatorships!

1973 crisis, the 80's (which were a shit to pretty much all the west), corruption, lack of investments in education, etc..

I knew that there were lots of Japanese-Brazilians, but didn't think the Sao Paolo skyline was similar to Tokyo.

Yeah, that is a little odd, especially because I didn't think the Japanese in Japan didn't become interested in baseball until after the United States occupied Japan after World War II. So if the majority of Japanese had already immigrated from Japan to Brazil before the War, they were just copying a game that was gaining popularity in their parent's and grandparent's homeland.

South America is a popular destination for Japanese emmigration especially in countries like Brazil and Peru where they had a Japanese president and an incident in the residence of the Japanese ambassador!
