Wagyu simply means "Japanese-style beef" in Japanese, but it also points to the main four breeds of Japanese cattle that are prized for their exceptionally well marbled meat.
Miyazaki prefecture is the 2nd largest producer of Kuroge Wagyu (Japanese Black Cattle), and to be qualified as Miyazakigyu, cattle must be born and raised in Miyazaki Prefecture and graded A4 and above.
A5 is the highest grade awarded by the Japanese Meat Grading Association. BMS (Beef Marbling Standard) scale is the grading of fat marbling, and A5 is chosen from BMS 8 and higher out of 12 for better marbling.
Miyazakigyu has gained the first prize of "the Prime Minister’s Award" for the “Wagyu Olympics” in 2007, 2012, and 2017 which was the first time in the history that a brand has been able to win for the third consecutive year.
Also Miyazakigyu was offered for the third consecutive year at the Academy Awards ceremony party held in the United States in 2018, 2019, and 2020, and it was honored to be adopted as the first "individual brand beef" in history.
