What is "Kani Kamakura"?
It is a specialty dish where a whole snow crab is wrapped in a special salt and slowly baked in the oven for an hour. You can use the wooden hammer provided to crack open the salty crust and enjoy the exquisite flavors. It's truly a masterpiece!
What is "Pure Tajima Beef"?
Pure Tajima beef is born and raised in the local Tajima region and can only be savroed here. It differs from other Japanese wagyu beef in that it has fine muscle fibers, making it highly marbled and boasting a melt-in-your-mouth texture. We strive to use this exceptional beef in our dishes as much as possible.
