Travel Guide - Daio Wasabi Farm


Utilizing natural spring water supplied by the Northern Alps is the biggest Wasabi farm in Japan called "Daio Wasabi Farm", covering an area of 15ha. The delicate white, Wasabi flowers can be seen from mid-March to April. There are walkways which enable you to explore the Wasabi fields up close. Wasabi ice cream is a unusual treat available that is worth trying.
The area was also the location site for the Akira Kusorawa's movie "Yume (Dreams)", and the three water mills that appeared in the film still exist here.
