How can one not have the beef when in Japan? You must try the Ishigaki Beef, which is native to Ishigaki and it is really good! It has good marbling and amount of fat, and gives a sweet aftertaste! Some even say it is the best type of Wagyu.
Many of these Ishigaki beef are transported to other parts of Japan, so why not give it a try fresh while you are there. Pair this with a glass of Orion Beer – an Okinawan Beer, for the perfect dinner!
