I was born in Kobe and have tasted Kobe beef a lot from my childhood.
Kobe beef is gained from the prime beef named “Tajima-beef” which is the best traditional and excellent pedigree brand kept near Kobe area.  The pedigree has been kept as pureblood more than 200 years and has been quality improved.
The root of all other famous beef is from this Tajima-beef.

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).
