[Okura Village, Yamagata Prefecture] Okura Wasabi Harvesting and Processing Experience

At the foot of Hayama in the east and at the foot of Gassan in the south, there is Okura Village, the least populated in Yamagata Prefecture.
In winter, heavy snow of more than 3m is stored in beech forests, and after many years it has become a rich spring water, moistening rice terraces and growing fragrant wasabi.
We cultivate wasabi without using any pesticides or chemical fertilizers, and we are committed to processing without additives.
