When in Kobe, you MUST try Kobe beef.  So that is what we did.  I invited several students and a couple decided it was worth the price to have the experience.  Our tour guide made a reservation at a restaurant serving Kobe beef.  Little did the three of us know, but were invited  to a private dining room with our own chef.. a truly special experience.   So- what is the deal with Kobe beef.  Watch this video to get some details about the history of this type of beef in Japan and how that it is often mislabelled in the United States.
