  • Never knew how wasabi grows or how it looks in the rough there. I was surprised and thought it was very nice to see how it grows and to see the whole process. And what do they make a lot of wasabi! The burger/crocuette also the ice is very delicious but the chocolate I found really less.

  • Visit the snow is melted but still cold 10-3 months later. Still Wasabi fields green Soveraigne, look and feel good. Was that immersion foot pond that winter is warm and summer is cold springs in seems to be constant temperature all year round from summer felt cold, so guests can enjoy even more.

  • Parking and admission is free. Just the Wasabi farm is surrounded by clean water can be refreshing. Are you a lot in the gift shop, but they are very good.

  • 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 :)
