Relax and Enjoy Delicious Tajima Beef at “Yumura Onsen,” Famous for its Beautification Water
The Tajima area, located on the northern side of Hyogo Prefecture, is full of bountiful nature and is home to so many high-quality and fresh ingredients! The area is famous for seafood such as snow crab, but you also should absolutely try the area’s Tajima beef. Tajima cattle are a type of cow with an amazing pedigree that are meticulously raised. Actually, Tajima cattle are not only classified as producing the world-famous Kobe beef, but its calves are also crossed with other breeds to make other high-class brands of cattle. So, Japanese branded beef wouldn’t even exist without Tajima cattle! This time, I visited Yumura Onsen, somewhere you can enjoy both sightseeing and Tajima beef!

Awaji Island Three-Year Blowfish
Blowfish are usually shipped to market after being raised for two years, but at Fukura Harbor at the southern end of Awaji Island, they are raised for around three years. By raising them one year longer, the amount of meat on their bodies increases and their bodies are tightened by the fast tidal current of the Naruto Straits, so they taste just as good as those that grow naturally in the ocean.
Awaji Island is one of the leading cattle raising locations in Hyogo Prefecture, and Tajima cattle calves raised there have to meet rigorous standards to be called Awaji Beef. Awaji Beef is precious meat, with only about 200 heads circulating in the marketplace per year.
