The origin of Japanese wasabi cultivation is said to be from transplanting and cultivating the wasabi that was native to the Utougi area in the early Edo period. In front of ”Utsurogi” where local products are sold, there is a monument ”wasabi cultivation birthplace.” At ”Utsurogi”, our specialty raw wasabi, Wasabizuke and buckwheat noodle are for sale.
