Wasabi Harvesting and Cycling Tour with a Guide

Exclusive Experience in Azumino

Experience the Amazing Azumino: Wasabi Harvesting in the Wasabi Fields, an Electric Assist Bicycle Tour!

Experience the thrill of harvesting wasabi in the fields, an activity not usually open to the public, in Azumino!

The abundant underground water from the Northern Alps gathers and springs forth, maintaining a consistent temperature of around 13 degrees Celsius throughout the year, perfect for wasabi cultivation. Nagano Prefecture is renowned as Japan's top wasabi producer, with over 90% of cultivation happening in Azumino.

For this special occasion, we've received permission to enter the wasabi fields, typically accessible only to farmers. Wearing rubber boots, you'll walk through the fields where the spring water flows, experiencing the lush growth of wasabi and participating in the harvesting process!

As a special treat, each participant will receive a souvenir of one wasabi rhizome! Taste the authentic spiciness of real wasabi, not from a tube. Please wear clothing that can get dirty as we'll be entering the fields.
