Tachibana-touri (Orange Street)
Walk west for three minutes on the street one block south of Sankaku-Koen Park in America-mura to get to Tachibana-touri, the "vogue" street of Osaka. Fashionable shops including cafes, boutiques, general merchandise stores and interior goods shops line both sides of the 800-meter-long street, welcoming many young people on weekends. This street was formerly called Tachibana-touri (with a different kanji), dating back to the end of the Edo Period as the furniture store street in Minamihorie; many antique shops joined the street in the Meiji Era, and during the post-war, rapid-growth period, it became nationally famous as an area for furniture. It is currently known as Orange Street (Tachibana is a type of citrus), where Japanese traditional furniture stores from before the war still remain, but is also attracting attention as a new cultural trendsetter. On the south end, it neighbors Minatomachi River Place and OCAT.
