    Boat is too much Wasabi farm pin can nowhere but in this boat ride. I forgot the name of the river is a beautiful River in the spring of 10 people take place in an inflatable back and forth. Estimated driving time is 20 minutes. It was 1200 yen. The first and last kayaking in heartening in everyone. With the foot River boat in return. Views are worth well the ride is. Well I took a little child. Also a boat in addition to Museum shops and wasabi. Was so crowded that he was going there in a matter of hours. Gorotsukimashita 10:30, parking lot is nearly full, traffic got in a waiting car. Go early if you go here-1 did not wait for it, might be better.

    In the middle of the summer holidays, was jammed into the parking lot. However, our rent a bike next to the page's. Park was horrendous in crowds. Tourist attractions free of charge and are extremely popular. Nothing else amazed at streams and wasabi farm. What as if touched by that time has come. Mill also became the location of the Kurosawa film "ran" around anything I feel the original scenery of Japan. Soba shop shops such as restaurants, Wasabi ice cream. When you come to the Azumino region first of all here is a must.

    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.
