Experience Details
Yamagata beef is like the lesser-known cousin of Kobe beef, which gets all the attention. Not celebrated as it should be by people outside of Japan, Yamagata wagyu is nevertheless a high-quality product that is famous among the Japanese as one of the six top beef-producing areas nationwide. If you are thinking about opting for a low-profile, yet authentic and charming destination when visiting Japan, consider visiting Yamagata and make sure to get a bite of its ultra-buttery, succulent wagyu. Top-grade Japanese beef usually comes at a cost. Get a juicy bargain by signing up for this unique dining experience in Yamagata. It combines the best of both worlds, quality meat and a budget-friendly rate, in a fun and creative way. In fact, this succulent meal is based on the concept of providing wagyu beef at market price and the experience is literally held at a local supermarket. Check-in at the supermarket register, saying you are here for the BBQ experience, then take a seat in the grilling area and get ready to dig into your feast. Your booking includes a two-hour table reservation and a menu specially chosen by the owner to combine the best quantity, variety, and quality of wagyu beef and grant you the best value for your money. However, if you feel like cooking up some additional seafood on the Japanese-style grill, picking up some side dishes, or washing down the meal with local Japanese sake or craft beer, you can feel free to walk through the store aisles, purchase your product of choice, and create a banquet that suits your fancy. Enjoy the incredibly tender, top-quality Yamagata beef in a relaxed atmosphere accompanied by sizzling sounds, and take a chance to poke around a Japanese supermarket’s aisles in search of some ingredients you’ve never seen before.

Experience Location
Yamagata City is the capital of the prefecture by the same name, home to the hot spring town of Kaminoyama Onsen and ski resorts like Zao Onsen (known for their famous snowscape of “snow monsters” - trees enrobed with a layer of snow, shaped by the strong chilly winds). The lands are fruitful, and Yamagata City hosts the annual Yamagata Cherry Festival in the summer to celebrate its abundance, while autumn is prime grape-picking season.
