Located in the beautiful region of Azumino and set against the background of the Japanese Northern Alps, Daio Wasabi Farm is the one of the largest producers of wasabi in Japan. Covering an expansive area, multiple large water-filled fields of wasabi are dissected by clear streams of water and walking paths, along which visitors are free to explore. Wasabi requires large amounts of clear, clean water to grow and the streams and pools that flow across the farm create a picturesque and idyllic setting through which to wander. Daio Shrine and wooden water wheels on the Tade and Yorozui Rivers – the setting for a scene in Kurosawa Akira’s 1989 film ‘Dreams’ – only add to that atmosphere. From late-April until late-October, inflatable boats take visitors on the river – JPY1200 per person for 20 minutes – as a relaxing and lovely way to take in the beautiful surroundings.
Multiple shops and restaurants sell all things wasabi including wasabi-flavored sausages, chocolate, ice cream, and beer! Forget the crude imitations you may have experienced at home, real Japanese wasabi is a complex, more subtle flavour to savour and enjoy – a great destination to enjoy in combination with the other attractions of Azumino and nearby Matsumoto Castle. Open daily from 09:00 to 17:20, closing at 16:30 from November to February. Admission is free.
