  • Pure tourist attractions, so went the water touching? Mind was the feeling of being washed.

  • It is put for free and enjoy the sights. Water is clean, nice views of the Wasabi farm. Turbine and healed in the idyllic landscape. Was that with my dog. Wasabi is not good, but the Wasabi Curry was delicious.

  • Buri or stopped. Shinshu Soba lunch bought souvenirs eating WASABI and WASABI beer ice cream, give me a break. Depending on the season gets crowded I wonder?

  • Nice place to spend a couple of hours. It is still a working farm but very tourist oriented with a wasabi ice cream stand and a shop selling just about anything wasabi related. If you come from Hotaka station be sure to rent a bike and tour the nice countryside surrounding the place.
  • A wasabi farm!? a nice place to take a walk and enjoy wasabi ice cream
  • Wasabi plants require clear running water to grow so this farm is a bit different to the usual one you visit. Whilst there isn't much in the way of educational material for English speakers, the Daio Wasabi Farm is simply a beautiful place to wander around. Do seek out the waterwheels by a stream which is postcard perfect, long water weeds waving in the crystal clear water. There are also some interesting wasabi based food options and snacks to buy. It wasn't what we were expecting, but well worth the visit.
  • Not so interesting. Plenty of Wasabi products but most of them are just so-so. The wasabi icecream is good. And the Yuzu juice is good too.
  • Easily accessible, beautiful green and river view. Largest Wasabi farm in Japan. Worth making a trip. ( also near to factory outlet :)
