Tajima is a small province situated on the San'in Coast. Though it doesn't produce a large income, it has the advantage of its position, as it is a gateway between the coastal areas separated by the Chugoku Mountains. Nowadays, Tajima has gained global fame for being the birthplace of Kobe beef. Made from Wagyu cattle that are bred and reared following strict tradition, it is widely regarded as a delicacy and, possibly, the best beef in the world.
