Mundo Latino Gotanda Tokyo

ムンドラティーノ


Mundo Latino is a small shop on the 3rd floor of a building in Gotanda, Tokyo, that since 2001 has been selling mainly food, but also CDs, DVDs, magazines and newspapers from South America. Its location undoubtedly has a lot to do with it being near the Consulate General of the Republic of Peru in Tokyo and the Consulate-General of Brazil in Tokyo (not to be confused with the Tokyo embassies of these countries).

It doubles up as an information center for the capital’s South America community, with fliers, posters, and a notice board for various different events, as well as personal advertisements for goods and services.

The shop is a small space but densely stocked with typical South American foods and beverages, such as Brazilian coffee, from cheap to expensive, cachaça (AKA aguardente, pinga, caninha) the fermented sugarcane liquor from Brazil, tortillas, chorizo, beans of all sorts, and even ice creams all the way from South America.

Beside the counter is a small tropical juice bar.

For customers who can’t make it to the shop itself, an online ordering and home delivery service is also available via the Mundo Latino website.
