Celebrate Cherry Blossom Season with Marugame

What is Sakura?

The transient beauty of the sakura (or Cherry Blossom) is celebrated with picnics, family gatherings and the act of hanami or ‘watching the flowers’. It’s a chance to meditate on the fleeting nature of life- cherry blossom is usually only around for a couple of weeks after all!

About the tree

Experience Hanami the Marugame way by dropping by to enjoy your udon whilst admiring our co-created cherry blossom tree. Pick up your origami petal at the till, write your wish for the new season, fold your petal and add it to the tree and watch it blossom.

These simple blooms represent the brilliance and fragility of all existence. The fact they are reborn every year reminds us that we too have that same chance.

How to fold your origami petal

We invite you to share your hopes and dreams for the warmer days ahead by adding your very own cherry blossom to our tree in a co-created artwork as beautiful and fleeting as the blossoms themselves.

Step 1

Write down your wish and fold the paper, diagonally, in half over it.

Step 2

Fold the paper in half again and reopen with the point facing upwards.

Step 3

Turn your blossom over

Step 4

Fold the points at the bottom up to the dotted line and then turn your petal over

Step 5

Fold the corners down to secure them in place and turn your petal over.

Step 6

Loop the string through the hole and hang on our blossoming tree. Don't forget to share with #MarugameBlossom
