Tochigi Wagyu Beef
Wagyu beef is raised with great care by designated production farmers in Tochigi Prefecture. Tochigi Wagyu beef is a brand that only permits its name to be given to the finest quality meat mixed with even more fat that has an A4 or B4 grade or higher. It is exquisite beef that has been acclaimed number one in Japan repeatedly at national-level competitive shows.
The Nikko area, in the northwestern part of the prefecture, is particularly mountainous. In the midst of the rich nature, including the 2,486-meter-high volcano Mt. Nantai, Lake Chuzenji, and Kegon Falls, there are numerous shrines and temples that are registered as UNESCO Cultural Heritage sites. From Kinugawa Onsen to Kawaji Onsen, hot springs can also be found throughout the area. There are a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy as well, such as stand-up paddleboarding in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter.
