  • Was crowded on a Sunday, but in the parking lot (free) crew gave guided quickly. Admission is free, but the maintenance staff Hall trash thought, great one did not fall. It was rainy day walks scaffolding is as bad as it was not a breeze lane became good exercise walking around and around. In mid-September, but water was still covered with sunshade NET over red Amaryllis here is just beautiful in full bloom. Hall doesn't have the time, could not visit. Hall stand, tasting delicious, so for souvenirs I bought a Wasabi rice crackers. Just stepping out of the farm, bought Matsukawa village from Apple. It harvested ago the freshness.

  • It is a farm you can stroll while watching the Wasabi shelves. You can also take a boat to and from the River in the same facility consisting of a spring clean in about 15 minutes.

  • 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 :)
