Kobe is produced solely in Kobe City, Hyogo prefecture, Japan. Its unmatched luxurious flavor and texture produced through a highly meticulous and arduous process makes it the world’s rarest and most sought-after cattle meat in the world. Kobe beef requires a pure lineage of Tajima-gyu breed cattle born and raised in Hyogo prefecture, which feeds on the local water and grass its entire life. It must be a bull or virgin cow, processed in a Hyogo slaughterhouse and must pass a stringent government grading exam reaching a minimum BMS (beef marble score) of six or higher. To ensure authenticity, the store or restaurant must carry the certification with the ten-digit identification number determining which particular Tajima-gyu cow it came from.
