Since Brasília main attractions are in general a lot similar (modernism/architecture/urbanism), this is a good place to change the view a little bit. It's small but definitely charming. If you go on august the place holds a really popular festival on weekends, it's really fun but it gets crowed!

This Japanese temple was buuild on a piece of land donated by President JK to the Japanese community. In Brazil there are many Japanese working, which are very happy to be able to visit this temple.

The temple is average if you live in other countries and have seen Buddhist temples but nice to see it in Brazil and be reminded of a serene place... stands out amongst the uniformly designed structures...

Terra Pura is a great place to meditate, you can have Yoga or even practice some martial arts. In the weekends of august they make a festival, that serves several nipponic foods, such as yakisobas, gyosas and fried shrimp, together with presentations using drums and typical dancing.Great for family, and friends

This is a beautiful Japanese temple, with every architectural detail that entails. It does feel like you're in Japan. However, most of the time it is closed for visitors and you can only see it from outside.
