About your host

Following a career in journalism, I moved from inner Tokyo to the hills of Okutama in 2014. Always interested in wasabi, I helped local growers at their wasabida and have revived an abandoned patch.

What we’ll do

We'll meet at Kawai station and walk 20 minutes uphill to the wasabida. I will explain local flora and fauna and the history of the forest, as well as how I came to be in the position of Australian wasabi grower in Okutama. I'll explain how the plant is grown and share some delicious freshly ground wasabi with a tasty and simple lunch.

What else you should know

Sturdy footwear is recommended, and being waterproof is an advantage. Please note that conditions in the forest may be quite harsh during the winter. Also, this is a strictly "no smoking" experience.
