There are so many questions about Kobe Beef. “Where can I eat Kobe Beef?” or “Where can I buy Kobe Beef.” In 2007, Kobe Beef was registered as a Regional Organization Trademark by the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association. In this association, all commercial farms including breeding farms as well as traders of Kobe Beef are to be designated and registered. Furthermore all wholesale stores, retail stores and restaurants of the association are to display their designated registration certificate and bronze statue as proof of their membership at the front of their shop.
An online list of each of the Designated Registration Kobe Beef shops can be found on their website.
