Wagyu refers to four breeds Japanese Black, Japanese Brown, Japanese Shorthorn, and Japanese Polled.
Among these, Japanese Black Wagyu is known for its tender texture and rich flavor, characteristic of renowned brands such as Kobe beef, Omi beef, and Matsusaka beef, all of which are derived from Japanese Black cattle.
Furthermore, over 90% of the Wagyu beef available in the Japanese market is derived from Japanese Black cattle.

“Matsusaka beef,” which is known as one of Japan’s top three Wagyu beef varieties.

“Matsusaka beef,” one of the highest-grade branded Wagyu beef, is referred to as one of Japan’s top three Wagyu beef varieties, alongside Kobe beef, Omi beef, and Yonezawa beef. Among them, Matsusaka beef stands out as the finest quality Japanese branded beef, boasting a record of one head being sold at auction for 50 million yen in the past auctions, it’s the most select Japanese brand beef.

Wagyu beef is produced around Kobe City in Hyogo Prefecture, and is a world-famous high-grade beef.

Unsaturated fatty acids are expected to have positive effects on health as they lower bad cholesterol, keep the blood flowing smoothly, and have antioxidant properties.
This characteristic contributes to making Matsusaka beef healthy, with a smooth mouthfeel and a melting texture.
