The land of Azumino and its water
Azumino has gained a well-deserved reputation as Japan's leading wasabi producer. Nestled at the base of the Northern Alps, this region benefits from abundant water resources, thanks to numerous subterranean springs. These pristine spring waters of Azumino have even earned recognition as one of Japan's '100 Renowned Waters' by the Ministry of the Environment.
In this fertile land, the exquisite wasabi thrives by harnessing the rich nutrients found in the surrounding mountains' spring waters.
