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.

Although we have the added cost of a hotel our outlay overall was similar to 2 days touring with the ship and we saw so much more and the benefit of travell...

Kashima San hosted my wife, son and I on a days' tour of Tokyo. We had prearranged the itinerary to include some sites, some shopping and a museum. He met us at our hotel and talked us through the Tokyo Rail and Subway system which once you understand it is very efficient. We saw the Imperial Palace Bridges, Zozoji Temple (which is lovely), then we had time in Ginza including time in a quaint...

I thought overall Kashima did a good job. At times, I struggled with understanding his English but we worked thru it. I was a little disappointed with the magnitude of the public transportation necessary to get to sites; and, at times Kashima was unsure of the correct subway or train line to take. It was a long, full day that was enjoyable but not sure I was recommended this particular itinerary a...

My groups’ tour with Kashima was chalk-full of information about all the sites we went to and was sprinkled with some current cultural facts in between. Kashima himself was considerate of our lesser-abled group members and even helped fix mistakes we made in regards to transportation. Overall a great tour guide, would recommend. Thanks Kashima for your patience with us.

Our family of 6 had an excellent and enriching tour with Kashima-san. One of the main reasons we wanted a guide in Tokyo was to help with arranging a tour of a sumo stable in Tokyo, many of which are weary of visitors. Despite this, Kashima-san managed to book a tour of the Hakkaku sumo stable. Ahead of the visit, Kashima-san sent us a summary of sumo wrestling and what we might expect to see in t...
