Back at our local Yakiniku in Kyoto. This time we were very lucky, maybe because the president of Onishi also turned up.
We got three different cuts from the phantom beef, the Murasawa beef.
Usually the beef is named after the prefecture where it is coming from, not so Murasawa. The beef is so specific that it is called after the manufacturer. There are three bloodlines which get traced pedantically in order to select the best cows for breeding. The cows are much older than normal when slaughtered and the annual contingent is only 80(!) cows. A rare treat which you only can get in very few places in Japan and no where overseas.
Whether we got the Murasawa beef because the president was there or vice versa, we don't know but we were very happy.
