  • I love wasabi so this was a must. I learned a lot about the different varieties and how not only the root but other parts could be used for cooking as well. I was also fascinated by the irrigation sys...  read more »
  • Ride free, a glass-bottomed boat takes charge, clean water and so soothing, so worth is. Delicious crispy staple with wasabi croquette, but not at all spicy flavor only.

  • Lunch was crowded and shops. Only Wasabi rice bowl set is sold at an early stage. How set up noodles, may help alleviate the Wasabi spicy Soba soup was just good. On the other hand was a hearty! You buy fresh Wasabi, so simply on raw fish and meat, and would make the Wasabi rice.

  • Interesting to visit but at the same time, not much to see. The free admission is a positive point but expect the tour to be done in 45 minutes maximum. Skip the wasabi ice cream. Expensive and tastless.
  • Gorgeous place. You can see how the wasabi is grown, as well as taste various wasabi products. I tried the wasabi ice cream, which was tasty (and not at all spicy). There are also various shrines scattered about the property, including one within a stone tunnel. Extremely picturesque, an easy half day's activity.
  • Free. Fascinating. Very restful. No sales pressure. Grounds very beautifully set out.
  • It's really great to go there by foot from the railway station if you're coming from Matsumoto by train - it's a 15-20 minute walk through neat agricultural grounds and one shrine near the city center if you plan your route beforehand. When you get to the farm, there's around 30-45 minutes of walking paths all around and through the wasabi "fields" (it's a subdivided river actually) - make sure you try their local wasabi-curry, wasabi-beer, wasabi-ice-cream and wasabi-lemonade, they are surprisingly delicious! Also, their wasabi is nothing like the stuff you can taste in the west - we got ourselves a pack and literally snacked on it after coming back home - it's incomparable quality-wise and you can't (unfortunately ;_;) get it online.
  • Wasabi Ice cream is the one of best.
