Winner of the 2017 “Wagyu Olympics”! Imported directly from Japan where they raise prized cattle, these densely marbled Striploin. This magnificently marbled steak is one of the richest experiences of Japanese Wagyu there is and, with its trademark coco-nutty retronasal explosion, gives Kobe beef a run for its money at about half the price. Perhaps one of the tenderest steak you’ll ever cut into, the juicy flavor profile is rich, buttery-smooth, beefy and truly unforgettable. Every bite practically melts in your mouth. These have a BMS rating of 10-12! 12 being the highest there is.

Kagoshima Prefecture is located on Japan’s southern island, Kyushu. An unparalleled level of quality and consistency that has made Kagoshima the largest producing prefecture in Japan.

Always great

I went with the Kagoshima because I wanted something fresh for my buddies first foray in A5. Personally I like Miyazaki better and I think he would as well but this stuff is still great. I brought along the blue label filet, hanger prime, the grant and the full blood American Wagyu Picahna. The Picahna won hands down. That seems to happen often. Anyway the meat was great as usual and on time. I don’t purchase from anywhere else.

All the flavor of A5 with a little more chew

Really enjoyed these. We cooked these and some full blood A5 wagyu and tried them side by side. The flavor was amazing, but don’t expect the same texture as A5. If you want to enjoy a steak with the flavor of A5 but with a LITTLE more chew this is an excellent choice.

Not disappointed at all. I feel the A5 can be over powering, but this was well balanced.

When it comes to A5, Kagoshima Prefecture is always consistent and tasty choice. Meat Artisan's arrived fresh cut....no freezer burn or old from stock here!
