The tiny Japanese-style garden on Galvao Bueno offers a slice of Zen along an otherwise hectic Liberdade commercial corridor. Inside the adjacent and temple-like Casa da Cultura Oriental, vendors at food stands sell tempura and rolled sushi, along with other regional treats. Nearby, masseuses purvey their art in 15-minute increments, while traditional Japanese music plays over loudspeakers.
