The second section is my analysis of the main points in the article and thus is more relevant to non-Japanese readers. The third section is more elementary and pertains to general facts about how beef cattle are raised in Tokyo before being exported to other parts of Japan.

Different breeds of cattle

Before you get too excited about eating beef from Japan, it’s essential to know that not all cattle are equal. There are different breeds of cattle, each producing a different flavor and texture in the meat.

For example, A5 Wagyu is considered one of the most prized Kobe cuts because it has been bred for its tenderness and intense marbling (the amount of fat). Kobe beef comes from Akita cows raised on farms in Yamagata Prefecture since ancient times—and they’re not just any old farm animals! These gentle giant animals live in natural surroundings with plenty of fresh air and sunlight exposure during their early years so they can grow up healthy–but also mean-looking enough for people who appreciate their beauty (including chefs!). They’ll even give birth at age four instead of 9 like other breeds do, so their calves have time to develop into strong little ruminants before going into production mode: which means less stress for them and the humans who eat them!

A5 Wagyu vs. Kobe

A5 Wagyu is a Japanese beef, but what about Kobe? Is it the same thing?

The short answer: is no. A5 Wagyu is a beef from Japan, while Kobe beef is a breed of cattle that originated in Japan. It’s not as expensive as other types of Wagyu (which have an average price tag north of $100 per pound), so if you’re looking to try something more accessible, this will be your best bet!

Cattle in Japan

The Japanese people have a solid connection to cattle. They are so attached to these animals that they consider them close family members. In some parts of Japan, you can find farms where cows and bulls roam free on their land.

For a cow or bull to become delicious Wagyu beef (which is considered the best in all of Japan), it must be raised in groups on farms with access to fresh grasses or other natural foods, such as hay fields or pastures where the cows graze freely during the day before being returned at nightfall so they may eat tomorrow morning again when another round begins again until eventually reaching maturity at which point you will receive your shipment from Japan!
