    Stunden Geschätzte Dauer

See how the clear mountain spring water that originates on Mt. Fuji is used for rainbow trout farming and to grow wasabi. After about 50 years of underground filtering, the water emerges in natural springs or is extracted to supply the people of the Shizuoka Prefecture with water of extraordinary quality. The area supports more rainbow trout farms than anywhere else in Japan, one of which you will visit. It will be an enlightening experience as you will discover how these beautifully colored fish are cultivated in great numbers. The majority of the wasabi consumed in Japan also comes from the prefecture. After observing how it is grown, you will sample a rice ball that contains freshly ground wasabi and rainbow trout. Few foods are so emblematic of the area and the obsession with the pure water from Mt. Fuji. At Jimba Waterfall, you will watch that water gently cascade into a pool below.
