Tomie Ohtake Sculpture
A true picture-postcard site, the sculpture by artist Tomie Ohtake can be seen from all points of the shoreline. It marks the commemorations for the 100-year anniversary of Japanese immigration to Brazil and was inaugurated in 2008 by the Japanese Emperor Naruhito. The steel piece weighs 80 tons, is 20 meters long and 2 meters wide. It is well worth going close to feel how the noise of the sea is amplified near it.
