You Must Try Japanese Wagyu Beef If You Come to Japan!! Let`s Know the Rank of the Each Japanese Wagyu Beef Before Eating it!


We can be said that most delicious beef in the world is Japanese Wagyu beef,  it is also paying attention to the world. The beef is divided into two grades, which is yield grade and meat quality grade. The yield grade represents the amount of meat that can be removed, and divided into 3 steps from rank A to C. Then A is the best among them and the more carcasses you can get from a cow, the higher the grade it is. The meat quality grade is divided into 5 to 1 stages, and 5 is considered to be a best. It will be judged by four of “marbling of fat “, “the color of the meat”, “the tightness and texture of the meat”, and “the color of the fat and quality.” From those, it can be tell how much grade the beef is!


Normally, Japanese Wagyu beef will be considered as rank A, and other beef will be evaluated to rank B. At here, you will know the reason why Japanese Wagyu beef is known to be high grade. The 90% of “Japanese Wagyu beef”  you listen frequently is “Japanese black cattles. This time, I would like to talk about Japanese beef that Japan boasts. Before having it, let's know the difference between 5 carefully selected beef brands: Sendai beef, Yonezawa beef, Miyazaki beef, Kobe beef and Matsuzaka beef.




Matsuzaka Beef


It is known as one of Japan's Major Wagyu beef  and it is considered to be the Wagyu beef with the highest quality. It has been fattened in Mie prefecture, attracting attention from the world, and marbling is characteristic, it has the name "art of meat."

To make good meat quality, Matsuzaka beef  is famous for massaging the cattles to improve good blood circulation and giving beer to improve appetite. The taste is fine, sweet and soft it  will melt in your mouth!




Kobe beef


The "Kobe beef" which can be taken from Kobe in the Kinki region is drawing attention abroad as the world's most exclusive meat. The origin of Kobe beef is "Tajima beef", and those satisfying certain criteria also in "Tajima beef" are called "Kobe beef". It is also characterized by fine texture and high quality fat. Following Matsuzaka beef, it is said to be the Three Major Japanese Wagyu beef in Japan.




Yonezawa Beef


Yonezawa beef can be taken from Tohoku region, in Yonezawa, Yamagata prefecture.  Matsuzaka beef, Kobe beef, Yonezawa beef are known as Japan's Three Major Wagyu beef. It is a very tight meat, but there is also softness to it with flavors and fragrance. This meat can also eaten in raw if its fresh.




Miyazaki Beef


"Miyazaki beef" need to have the conditions of three items. Which is

"Produced in Miyazaki Prefecture", "Japanese black cattle", and "Those with meat quality grade 4 or higher at Japan Association of Ratings." The Miyazaki beef has a  fine texture, the portion of the fat is soft, and it has a refreshing taste although there is richness.

It is a beef with a high evaluation from overseas, and it is now exported to the United States, Hong Kong and Singapore.




Sendai Beef


At last, I want to introduce is “Sendai beef” which can be taken from Tohoku region, Sendai, Miyazaki prefecture. It can only have the name of “Sendai beef” with “5” rating with the highest meat quality grade. It have to be “Japanese black cattle”, “the cattle fattened in Miyazaki prefecture, and properly managed according to individuals and Sendai beef production registered farmers”, and “the beef evaluated as A5 or B5 at the Japan Meat rating Association.” The “Sendai beef” has a exquisite balance of lean meat and fat, a mellow with juicy rich flavor, which is said to be pleasant taste.




In addition, various kinds of Japanese beef that can not be conveyed here are traded according to the region.


This time,  I introduced five Japanese Wagyu beef representing Japan.  I think that you can understand the taste, texture and fragrance are all different depending on each beef quality and rank from here. It is difficult to understand by words alone, so you may not know without eating it. Although, the price of Japanese Wagyu beef is not cheap, but when you come to Japan, please try "Japanese Wagyu beef” the best beef in the world and Japan is proud of!

Hi Everyone! Happy to see you all through this website! =) Are you enjoying our column and Tokyo information so far? I luv to travel abroad and going to new places and enlarge my horizon! I also luv to listen to music, and I am learning Chinese in this moment! What I like about Japan is the four seasons is very clear. Furthermore, the more you will know about Japan, I think you may discover more interesting things and how different each prefectures are. While Tokyo has new trend things, but in another hands, you can see old shopping street and town like Asakusa. I assume that everytime you come to Tokyo you can find and experience new things!!
