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.

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...

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
