Tokachi Wagyu is a unique A5 Wagyu beef produced in Hokkaido that is "born in Hokkaido and raised in Tokachi".
This Tokachi is famous for its long daylight hours called "Tokachi Sunny".
Tokachi's cows take the blessings of the sun to their fullest and grow up eating plenty of high-quality feed,
centered on delicious local pasture and barley.
The Tokachi farmers realized recycling-oriented farming in which local grass is eaten,
the dung becomes compost, and the grass grown on the compost is eaten by cows.
This is also something that can only be practiced in Tokachi.
Tokachi Wagyu is a Japanese black beef that is produced by the producer and the agricultural organization working together with plenty of time and passion.
When shipping, they only ship products that the producer is satisfied with.
In addition, producers will check strictly up to the carcass, which is applied to the auction.

There is a sweet taste and is moderately best of Tokachi Wagyu Beef.
Authenticity & Transparency
Every A5 Wagyu beef product comes with a certification of authenticity along with the cattle's birth certificate. When you buy from Fine Wagyu you know you are getting the real deal. Your unique 10-digit cattle ID number allows you to see exactly where your beef is coming from.
You will know the origin of the meat, who the farmer is, and where the meat was processed. Because we value transparency, we spend the extra time and effort to ensure that you know exactly the kind of beef you are getting. When you buy wagyu online, you should not have to worry about where it is coming from.
We recommend defrosting your Wagyu in the refrigerator for 24 hours to fully thawed before you cook it.
It will allow the Wagyu to retain all of its natural juices for exceptional flavor,
NEVER defrost Wagyu in a sink with water
NEVER defrost Wagyu by leaving it on the countertop
NEVER use the microwave to thaw your Wagyu
We recommend light seasoning (salt and pepper) with your Wagyu steak in order to enjoy the exceptional natural flavor of the meat itself.
When it comes to A5 Japanese Wagyu, less is more.
We recommend cooking your A5 Japanese Wagyu no more than medium; a well-done wagyu will lose its exceptional flavor and tenderness.
The heat should penetrate through all marbling seams of the Wagyu steak for it to reach the optimum flavor point.
It is best to have the pan or grill heated to high before adding the steak. Sear both sides for 2 minutes each, and then reduce heat to medium-low.
BMS (Beef Marbling Standard)
The BMS basically looks at the distribution of intramuscular fats to determine the quality of beef.
By worst BMS 1: Complete fat separation from red meat.
To best BMS12 : Perfect for even distribution of Intramuscular fat with red meat.
BMS 7 above is the so-called high grade beef, BMS 12 is what we call the perfect marbled beef.
As a reference, USDA Prime, the highest quality beef in the US, which the High-end Steakhouses in the US are offering, only get 4-4.5 BMS score.
