Dai-ō Wasabi-Nōjo

Farm in Azumino

Fancy some wasabi beer? This farm, a 15-minute bike ride from JR Hotaka Station, is de rigueur for wasabi lovers. An English map guides you among wasabi plants (130 tonnes of wasabi are grown in flooded fields here annually) amid rolling hills, restaurants, shops and work spaces. It's a fascinating and lovely place for a stroll and best of all, it's free!
