Orange Range is a well-known, five-member Japanese rock band formed in Okinawa in 2001. Their music video for “Sushi Tabetai” (lit. “I want to eat sushi”), which appears on their 10th album, fittingly called Ten, has received over half a million views since being uploaded to YouTube in September this year.
