[Rio de Janeiro Fish Market]
"San Pedro Fish Market" in Niterói, next to Rio de Janeiro
It's a hidden lunch and sightseeing spot that tourists also visit.
Many restaurants in Rio de Janeiro also buy fish from here.
When you come to Rio, be sure to visit Niterói!
[State of Copacabana Beach]
Rio de Janeiro was on a carnival vacation without a parade.
The occupancy rate of the hotel was about half of the average year, there were few tourists, and there was no parade, so the atmosphere was quiet, but the weather was fine and I was able to spend a relaxing time.
[Samba team / Sargueiro practice scene]
Unfortunately, this year's carnival has been canceled, but we usually hold public practice every Saturday about four months before the actual performance to showcase the results of our daily practice.
The funds obtained from the admission fee, food and drink charges in the venue, sales of goods, etc. will be important funds for the team's activities, so you will naturally get into the practice and show the dance and performance just like the actual performance!
If you want to come to the carnival but can't, don't worry, there are places in Rio where you can enjoy the carnival atmosphere outside of the actual time!

[January 25, the state of Copacabana]
Rio, which is crowded with tourists from all over the world every year, cannot beat Corona and shows a mysterious way of calming down.
When you enter the street a few lines back from the beach, many shops are closed and you can feel the depth of the scars on the corona, but since the corona vaccination has started, it will end as soon as possible and the original Hope to return to Rio!
[Chinese restaurant in Centro]
A popular shop in the shopping district where you can easily drop in by yourself.
The menu is as simple as the store, with only noodles and dumplings (water dumplings and grilled dumplings), but the price is low, so it is perfect for people who want to save time and money.
The taste is ... well, don't worry too much (laughs)
[Carnival in Rio 2021 canceled]
On January 21, the Mayor of Rio de Janeiro announced that the 2021 Rio Carnival was scheduled to be canceled in July.
We tried to postpone the event from February to July, but we decided to cancel it because we think that it is impossible to hold the parade to ensure the safety of all (participants / spectators) by July.
It was the first "cancellation" in carnival history. .. ..
I pray that 2022 will be held safely! !!

The movie theater has also reopened. There is no ticket window, you can purchase tickets in advance using the app or purchase using the movie theater totem.
The world-famous BTS movie was also screened! Brazil has a core fan base, and it was a common sight to see groups dancing on Paulista Avenue in front of Corona.
I hope that the day will come when such a scene will be seen.
