Hida-gyu Japanese A5 Wagyu – NY Strip Manhattan Cut
About the Hida-gyu Japanese A5 Wagyu - NY Strip Manhattan Cut
This limited run of Japanese Wagyu hails from the Hida region of the Gifu prefecture located at the crossroads of Japan, connecting the east to the west. The Hida Wagyu cattle, known as “Hida-gyu,” are raised on the clean air under the shadow of Japan’s Northern Alps. Of particular note is the pure spring water of the region, which experts attribute to Hida’s perfect Wagyu. Our Hida-gyu is 100% pure-bred Kuroge Washu cattle (the same breed that produces Mishima Reserve American Wagyu) and is offered in the “A5 grade” – the highest grade awarded in the tightly controlled Japanese Wagyu grading system. The Hida region’s rise in the world of Japanese Wagyu Beef can be traced back to the arrival of a legendary Kuroge Washu bull named Yasufuku which was brought to Hida in the early 1980’s from Kobe, Japan. The region’s rise became synonymous with the best of Japanese Wagyu when “Hida-gyu” won the “Wagyu Olympics” in the early 2000s. This exquisite offering is extremely limited and will pair incredibly well with other Mishima Reserve cuts for the ultimate tasting menu for you and your guests.

We have two important objectives in preparing your order for shipment. First and foremost, that your meat arrives in perfect condition. Second, that the packaging be as environmentally friendly as possible. We seal each steak in its own airtight wrapper and use dry ice to ensure everything stays frozen or near-frozen in transit. The insulating liner is water-soluble and can literally be washed down the drain or composted, and the outer shipping carton is fully recyclable, post-consumer cardboard.
