What is "Yamagata-gyu" of "Kuroge-wagyu" beef?
"Yamagata-gyu," along with "Yonezawa-gyu" and "Kobe-gyu", are all different kinds of premium-brand "kuroge-wagyu" beef.
The methods in which Yamagata-gyu cattle are raised require special care and take much longer than other beef varieties. The cattle are raised for a long period in an inland basin climate marked by hot summers and cold winters. This is the primary reason why "Yamagata-gyu" red meat has more fine-textured meat fiber than typical beef, along with perfect marbling. , Rich and mellow in taste, "Yamagata-gyu" red meat is the optimum beef for yakiniku.
Superb Dry-Aged Beef
Our beef is matured by a method of dry-aging, which brings out the flavor of red meat.
As the 30-day aging process progresses, enzymes in the meat’s muscle begins to break down proteins into amino acids, which are a component of 'umami' taste.
We carefully select meat that has an increased tenderness, along with a sweet and rich flavor. Please enjoy unbeatable taste unmatched by other places.
