Japanese Barbecue
Premium, high quality wagyu from Hiroshima

Fresh, Never Frozen:The Furusato Difference

Furusato is the only Japanese-style barbecue restaurant in Japan that offers customers Hiroshima's finest wagyu brand, Sakakiyama Beef, fresh from the farm without ever once being frozen. The freezing process damages and destroys cells in the meat. Since our meat is never frozen, our wagyu is unlike any other with an unbelievably tender and silky texture, signature aroma, and rich umami flavor. If you're in search of the perfect wagyu, you've found it here at Furusato, where you can experience true Japanese-style barbecue.

Sakakiyama Beef

Sakakiyama Beef isn't just a beauty to behold, it's the only brand of wagyu in the prefecture that is bred and raised for optimal flavor. You may know wagyu for its characteristic marbling, known in Japanese as shimofuri. But this marbling is merely the result of selective breeding, making it possible for any wagyu cattle raised for 24 months to achieve a beautiful marble, but it doesn't account for flavor.

Sakakiyama Beef, on the other hand, is raised not just for 24 months, but for 32. That's eight months more than standard wagyu cattle. But that's not the only difference. By providing the cattle with proper care and ensuring their health, we're able to improve the umami and aroma compounds in the beef, as well as foster high-quality fat in the marbling that melts in your mouth. We also provide them with a diet of quality ingredients that are often deemed too costly for standard wagyu production.

Providing these cattle with an increased number of health checks and maintaining a stress-free environment for them is both cost and labor intensive. It also requires skilled professionals. But it's this level of commitment that makes Sakakiyama Beef a cut above all other wagyu and a taste experience you'll never forget.
