Hitachi Wagyu Beef Hitachino (Tsukuba City)
This restaurant serves a range of beef dishes including yakiniku (Japanese-style grill your own meat), sukiyaki, steak and barbecue dishes. The restaurant uses Hitachi Wagyu Beef and charcoal made from oak trees grown on Mount Tsukuba.
The food isn’t the only thing that draws people to Hitachino – the restaurant itself is built in a traditional Japanese style with a steep thatched roof and offers great views of the Mount Tsukuba area, whatever the time of year.
