Shizuoka Wasabi raised by the history and tradition
Wasabi with unique pungent flavor is an indispensable ingredient for Japanese food. Convenient wasabi tube and powder are often used, but they are nothing compared to the flavor of fresh wasabi. Such fresh wasabi has been raised in great nature in a traditional way which avoids using fertilizers and agricultural chemicals as much as possible.
"Tatamiishi style wasabi field " is certified as a Japanese Agricultural heritage
Cultivation of wasabi which was growing naturally in clean water streams started about 400 years ago in the mountainous area of Shizuoka city. In the Meiji era, an epoch-making "tatamiishi style wasabi field" was devised, which enabled nutrients and oxygen to be efficiently taken in under the stable water temperature in Izu City, and made it possible to produce high quality wasabi throughout the year. Shizuoka prefecture is now the largest wasabi producing area in terms of cultivation area and production volume. Then, this "Shizuoka water wasabi traditional cultivation" was certified as a Japanese agricultural heritage in 2017. Wasabi fields spread over the mountainous areas offer places where many water creatures can breed, and also help to create a beautiful natural environment.
