A rare find: video of a wasabi farm in the mountains of Japan - YouTube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhvkcO5jLAg&list=PL2210C983C75AB3A6&feature=plcp&context=C3c0cc5dFDOEgsToPDskJ5xEal96zCcIfubv-zmWQQ

Paralleling a steep mountain stream there are rock terraces running
all the way up the mountainside, forming shallow aquaculture pools
at each level providing the ideal environment for wasabi culture, a
continuous flow of fresh cold water. Wasabi is an expensive cash crop
which is turned into a
very hot condiment paste used with a variety of Japanese dishes.

This shows the beauty of traditional Japanese culture.

Here are more plus one on growing wasabi in the US Pacific Northwest

Great video - I am curious if anyone monitoring this thread has successfully raised wasabi, and if so under what conditions?

See my update for more links. It is grown in the Pacific Northwest and in the North Carolina mountains.
