About Orange Street
A 800m shopping street filled with an eclectic mix of trendy fashion, second hand stores, hip cafes and bars, and historic furniture and antique stores.
Tachibana Dori, better known by its nickname “Orange Street”, is a trendy shopping area, filled with chic fashion boutiques, interior design stores, unique cafes and hip second hand stores. Stretching over 800m, the area was famous since the Edo Period for producing high quality furniture. However, the economic troubles of the 90s forced the area to rebrand and refocus on trendy fashion and hipster youth culture. Thankfully, its quality craft and creativity origins still shine through.
Some of the old furniture and antique stores still remain, and the blend of old and modern - as well as many different styles of creative fashion and decor styles - makes the area fascinating to explore.
Stores generally don’t open until 11am or 12pm, however some may be open closer to 10am. Many are open until 6, 8 or 10pm.
For those still left wondering, Tachibana is a kind of citrus, hence the “Orange Street” nickname.
