If you want a good craft beer and some good Japanese food on a simple and fairly quiet setting before returning to your hotel in Copacabana, this is a good option. Dishes are good and not expensive.

This tiny Japanese restaurant is excelent! Many tourists here should be a concern for a local like me. But it’s not. Excellent restaurant. Please order the chef combo, which I show in the picture. Mr. Ohata does everything right here, including the amazing sake menu!

This is by far the best and most authentic Japanese restaurant in Brazil. Miso soup is a must try. We tried sea food tepanyaki and vegetarian sushi. Everything tasted great. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying around copacabana beach.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
