  • I went to the first time in 8 years. The site was planted a lot of wasabi. It was not even spicy Wasabi software ¥ 360 was the Wasabi color taste. Lingo soft cream was the intense Apple taste.

  • Spring water is very clean. Wasabi software is just horseradish flavor factory, 欠kemashita but not too sweet, not too tangy with impact. The site is helpful, too much can not.

  • we can enjoy walking around the wasabi farm and its beautiful scenery
  • 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
