The Kobe beef served at "Yakiniku Yoshimi" in Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture, introduced in the video, is a brand name of beef that is used when meat from Tajima cattle (Japanese black cattle) produced in Hyogo Prefecture meet certain standards.

Kobe beef is well known not only in Japan, but also in Europe and the United States, and has been selected as one of the three major Japanese beef breeds.
Kobe beef has many different names in Japanese, sometimes going by the English "Kobe Beef" or "神戸ビーフ" (kobe beef transliterated) "神戸肉" (kobe niku), and "神戸牛" (kobe gyu).
All of these mean the same thing, however.

The Requirements of Kobe Beef

There is a clear definition of Kobe beef which refers to beef that has been carefully selected from Tajima cattle.
Whether the meat is Kobe beef or not is determined at the time of shipping, which means there is no such thing as live Kobe beef.

In addition, only heifers (females that have not yet given birth) and male castrates are recognized as Kobe beef.
On top of that, the Beef Marbling Score (BMS) value must be No. 6 or higher, with a carcass weight of 270-499.9 kg for females and 300-499.9 kg for males.
Carcasses with flaws are judged by the Kobe Meat Marketing Promotion Council to determine whether they are Kobe beef or not.
