Daio Wasabi farm is located just outside Matsumoto. We had a wonderful time strolling through the farm and saw how wasabi plants are grown.There's a wasabi processing room where you can see how the plants are cleaned, cut and processed.
After seeing how wasabi is...More
I visited the DAIO Wasabi Farm with a group & we had a peaceful walk around the Farm, interesting that this plant grows under shade cloth as it is sensitive to Sunlight, the shop allows you to try Wasabi shaved & in its natural state...More
There were 3 water wheels all surrounded by yellow (flag) irises and looking their best. The farm was quite busy and extensive and once you'd seen one acreage of wasabi plants... The museum explained the plant and its many uses and there were also a...More
Huge wasabi farm where you can take a stroll... or even a boat trip... plentiful of wasabi related food items and souvenirs. Tried the wasabi soft serve ice cream.. not really strong in flavor. My friends tried the apple soft serve and that was good.
A 25 minute drive outside of Matsumoto and you arrive at this rather unique farm. After Wasabi flavored ice creams to get us in the proper mood we wandered around the water based plantations. A small area allowed us to observe the plant being taken...More
The farm itself was beautiful with clear water running through the plots. There were many interesting wasabi products to try out at the stalls too, e.g. wasabi beer, soft serve, sausage... worth a 1 - 2hr visit if you intend to eat something there...
We've always eaten wasabi with not much thought on how it came about. Interesting to see it grown in such a large farm on a super clean water stream. Soba, wasabi beer, croquet and ice cream were good. Nice place to walk around and explore...More

You can drink the water from the spring outside the upper gift shop.
You can try wasabi ice cream and wasabi beer from the...More
If you love wasabi here is your opportunity to see how it is farmed. The wasabi is under wraps for protection and must have running water beside it for it to grow. An interesting looking plant with deep green leaves but it is what grows...More

They did not fully answer this question in detail during the tour....they are quite secretive about their methods. However they did mention that they cover the plants with nets in the winter and when we were there in the Summer they had shades over the plants. They also plant trees besides the Wasabi to provide natural shade and they control the flow of water that reaches the plants. Hope this helps.
