About Omi beef
“Omi beef” is the pride of Shiga. It’s one of the best wagyu, and said to be the oldest beef of all in Japan.
The melting point of the meat fat is low, with fragrance bursts in mouth.
Omi’s local liquors
Lake Biwa occupies one sixth of the area in the land of Omi, a basin surrounded by mountains of Suzuka and Ibuki in the east; and Hira and Hiei in the west.
It has been a land of grains since the ancient time, producing a lot of local liquors because of the abundant spring water in the mountain areas.
What about delighting your meal with a bottle of liquor recommended by our okami (landlady)?
