Orange Street, Osaka (cafe and shopping) (Part 2)

After a short walk and delightful lunch at Timeless Comfort Cafe, let’s continue to explore the rest of Orange Street!

–>

After Timeless Comfort, you will see a relatively industrial looking shop with an interesting signage of multiple faces. That is ASOKO. ASOKO sells miscellaneous affordable lifestyle goods. The concept reminds me of Three Coins and Diaso, but ASOKO’s products are more quirky and colourful. I bought some cute bicycle and home accessories from ASOKO, which have earned much compliments!

Leaving Orange Street. And I saw my favourite Dormy Inn.

With that, we have completed the walk of Orange Street. I was pleasantly surprised to see my favourite hotel chain signage afar – Hotel Dormy Inn Shinsaibashi. Highly recommended to stay in this hotel with complimentary use of hot spring public bath and ramen supper.

I hope you have enjoyed the walk! Have a beautiful evening!


Love, Miwa
