  • Beautiful wasabi farm, nice to walk around and they have great food in the restaurant.
  • Nice place, but there's not too much to see or do.
  • 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.
  • All you want to know, see, eat, drink, feel wasabi
  • Its really intresting to see how wasabi is growing. Lots of wasabi foods available too.
