Kobe Beef:
A Brief Introduction.

Kobe Beef originates from a Japanese cow, but obtaining it is a lengthy process that begins from its origin to its breeding and care.

Cattle raised for the purpose of providing Kobe beef can only belong to the livestock raised in Kobe, a city located in the Osaka Bay, in central Japan, and the capital of Hyogo Prefecture, from which it takes its name.

Secondly, these cows must have a specific lineage that has been recorded since the Meiji period.

But what does this moment in Japan's history mean, when Kobe beef begins to gain momentum? The Meiji period was a time of significant political and social changes in Japan. The country opened its doors to the world and dismantled governmental systems that had existed for hundreds of years, starting in 1868.

Until then, no one imagined the delight that the world was about to discover.

The city of Kobe opened up to international trade as a port, attracting many foreigners who settled there. Soon, Kobe became a cosmopolitan locality, a meeting point of cultures, and a crossroads between traditions.

At that time, consuming meat in Japan was not as common as it is now. However, that part of history was about to change when an English tourist first tasted Kobe beef and discovered its unique characteristics, which only the finest meat in the world can possess.

Since then, the reputation of Kobe beef has crossed oceans to become the most coveted meat on the planet.
 

What an exquisite discovery!
