Yoko Ono’s Wish Trees

“As a child in Japan, I used to go to a temple and write out a wish on a piece of thin
paper and tie it around the branch of a tree. Trees in temple courtyards were always
filled with people’s wish knots, which looked like white flowers blossoming from afar.”
Yoko Ono: “All My Works Are A Form Of Wishing”.


Make your own Yoko Ono Wish Tree: http://imaginepeacetower.com/yoko-onos-wish-trees/

You will need: Tree, pencils, Wish Tags.

Wish Trees are traditionally native, local and indigenous.
Olive, Apple, Pomegranate, Ficus, Birch, and Juniper trees are all popular choices.

For Wish Tags you could use paper and string, or pre-strung white shipping tags.

Download and add the IMAGINE PEACE sign
Download and add the WISH TREE instruction

That’s it!

When the tree is full of wishes: 
email us
a photo and tell us your story
mail all the wishes to IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, PO Box 1009, 121 Reykjavik, Iceland.
