There are lots of things that could be eating the leaves of the cherry blossom.

It could for instance be moths or even some caterpillars that have crawled up.

Also there are many insects that could be doing this such as earwigs and so on.

Take a good look to see if you can see small insects, if there is nothing present on inspection it probably is something larger like a moth or night time visitor.
