How is Wagyu different than Kobe?

Kobe beef gets its name from the region in which Wagyu cattle are raised in Japan. The region is Kobe, a city in Hyogo Japan.

What makes Wagyu so special?

Wagyu beef cattle are bred from direct decedents of the Japanese cattle, so the flavor and tenderness are passed down through generations.
