Kobe Beef has a reputation for its deliciousness worldwide.
At the mention of Kobe, the first thing that gourmands from around the world will think about is inevitably the beef named after this city. The reputation of this tasty and delicate meat is well-established; to earn the title, the breeding of oxen of Kobe must follow very strict rules. All stress is meticulously avoided – the animals drink mineral water, and some breeders even go as far as to massage them with sake every day. Until 2012 it was impossible to find authentic Kobe Beef outside Japan, with any export being prohibited. While now you can find it occasionally in Europe or the United States, the export remains minimal, which makes the prices prohibitively expensive outside of Japan.
