Wasabi Harvesting Experience and River Cruise with Guide

"Experience the Beauty of Water: Wasabi Harvesting and River Cruise Tour"

Discover the abundant underground water from the Northern Alps that gathers in Azumino. This water, springing forth from underground, maintains a consistent temperature of around 13 degrees Celsius throughout the year. Thanks to this pristine spring water, Nagano Prefecture is known as Japan's top producer of wasabi, with over 90% of cultivation happening in Azumino.

Join us for a day tour where you can experience wasabi grown in these crystal-clear waters and embark on a river cruise to truly feel the essence of this beautiful water. Come and explore the charm of "wasabi" and "water," elements that you may think you know but have yet to fully discover.。
