Murakami beef or Murakami-gyu is one of Japan’s premium wagyu brands and also one of our top tier selections. Murakami City is located in Niigata Prefecture which is known famously for producing the best quality rice in Japan next to Sendai. Koshihikari is one of the most popular brands rice due to its sweet flavour - this rice straw is mixed into the feed of the wagyu lending to its vivid color and rich flavor.

“Niigata Wagyu Beef” denotes beef with grade A-3 or B-3 or higher prepared from Japanese Black Wagyu Cattle raised in Niigata Prefecture. Only beef with a grade of A-4 or B-4 or higher may be called “Murakami Beef”.

Murakami Beef refers to calves native to local Niigata Prefecture and Tohoku region of Japan and raised with high quality roughage (rice straw and hay) and a mixture of carefully selected compound feed. This gives the beef its vivid appearance, silky texture, rich flavor, and a melt in your mouth experience.

  • Top award in the 4th (2002) Beef Carcass Competition held by the National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations
