The walk around the farm is truly amazing. Water running through is really refreshing... we tasted it at one little corner which was allowed for sampling.

Wasabi is a small plant grown in clean clear running water under netting to keep it shaded. This is a huge site - about 15 hectares, lovely walks, and of course a LOT of wasabi! Look carefully in the shrubbery to find some tiny frogs,...More
