  • For the lovers of Wasabi, this is a must visit, the 15 hectares site is situated on a river and the running water kept the Wasabi plants healthy and a wonderful site to behold. Lunch is serve on site ...  more »
  • Wasabi garden walking around was the best. Nori Tsukudani of Wasabi bought at the shop. But rice is eaten, has been useful.

  • 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 :)
