Kobe Beef Introduction For Your Great Experience

Kobe beef is only the beef which pass the several severe criteria from the highest rank of Tajima-beef.
The reason why Kobe beef is the highest quality and delicious is said to be as follows.

  • Fat of meat is well put into the muscle of the cow grown near Kobe city area and this is well mixed with muscle fiber which create the best marbled beef.
  • The melting point of the fat in Kobe beef is much lower than that other beefs of other area. The fat is melted even by human temperature.   Therefore, you do not stodgy by eating the beef.
  • The above quality of marbled beef is gained by the good pedigree and it is well kept by the feed.
    The key points to create delicious Kobe beef are the purity of pedigree and the highest level of breeding technology.
    Beef carcass grading is determined by yield and meat quality scores.
  • Yield score (A to C)
    This is classified into three grades depending on the amount or percentage of edible cut that can be gained from a single head of cattle.
  • Meat quality score (1 to 5)
    This is the overall score based on the degree of marbling, firmness and texture, color, quality, and other factors.
  • Another factor: B.M.S (Beef Marbling Standard: No.1 – No.12)
    Based on above criteria, the beef of “A5-12” is the highest grade which has good yield, good color and firmness of meat, texture of marbling and so-on.

    There are lots of famous and delicious beef steak in Japan Within those steaks, Kobe beef is one of the best beef steaks in Japan which are most familiar in the world.

Following is the example of Kobe beef course you can taste in Kobe, Tokyo (Ginza, Roppongi).

Totally competent caring for our group. Got us through the day with ease. English was frequently difficult to understand, though. Very good skills getting us through all our train and bus changes. Did not, though, keep us together through the Himeji castle, nor give us any education while inside.

Kashima was wxcellent. We had Kashima guide us for 1 day in Kyoto and 1 day in Tokyo a few days later. Though we did a lot of sightseeing on our own in both cities, they were more local to where we were staying, Kashima guided us to places more out of the way, e.g. Golden Temple in Kyoto and Meiji Shrine in Tokyo. He was a great guide, very friendly, very informative about the places we visited a...

The excitement turned into disappointment because we booked five tours with TripleLights and our previous guides were excellent, fun, and organized. We have a comparison and Kashima was not prepared compared to those other guides. Many times, he...
