Wasabi (Japanese horseradish) can be grown in a very limited condition (climate, very very clean water, good drainage and etc...) and even Japanese rarely see how it is grown in the farm. This is why I recommend you to stop by Azumino and have a...More

Daio Wasabi Farm is a great attraction while staying in Matsumoto. The town, Azumino, is very quiet and quaint. There are no buses to the farm, you can either walk or bike (highly recommend) or take a taxi. The walk there is an experience in...More
