Morimoto Asia’s Sakura Festival, which celebrated the arrival of Spring throughout this past month, finally came to an end yesterday with the delicious and fun-filled Matsuri Festival.

Morimoto Asia offers the finest in Pan-Asian cuisine at Disney Springs as it features Chef Morimoto of Iron Chef America, a mastermind in Japanese cuisine who oversees the upscale restaurant. This past month this upscale restaurant celebrated the arrival of cherry blossoms and other spring flora through a series of private ticketed events, all of which featured different types of Japanese cuisine and a look at the preparation of the delicious foods that come out of Morimoto Asia.

This past Sunday’s finale of the Sakura Festival celebrated the Matsuri Festival, where guests got to enjoy unlimited servings from several Pan-Asian street food stations found within the restaurant. Some of these offerings available at these stations included California rolls, shrimp tempura rolls, Yakisoba, Takoyaki, and a ramen bar.

The event also included multiple dessert stations. Some of these dessert offerings included flavored ice in several flavors, and Dango in the toppings of kinako, mitarashi, and kuro-goma.

The event also included four beer and cocktail stations and fun Japanese carnival games and activities. Some of these activities included a ring toss and a balloon popping game.

Guests who won or earned points at both games were able to select from an array of different prizes.

Additionally, the event featured a calligraphy station where guests could have their names written in Japanese writing.

In theme with more creative experiences, the event also included origami paper folding, where an expert in the art helped guests create different creations.

The Matsuri Festival was $45 for guests aged 10 and up and free for young ones 9 and under.

The Sakura Festival may be over at Morimoto Asia but the restaurant will continue to hold separately ticketed events throughout the rest of the year.

Be sure to keep up with the restaurant’s events website where they post similar events as those from the Sakura Festival.
