Kira Offers Japanese beef at Its Best!


Sample the finest Saga wagyu beef at a fine dining establishment in Saga City


The Japanese beef produced in Saga Prefecture is widely recognized as some of the best in the country, and is a must-try for any visitor looking to sample wagyu at its finest. Saga beef comes from the region’s black cattle, which are carefully reared to ensure that the meat’s distinctive marbled grain receives exceptional scores in a rating system overseen by the Japan Meat Grading Assocation. This level of attention produces the melt-in-your-mouth quality that is synonymous with Japan’s world-renowned top-grade wagyu steaks.
Kira’s main restaurant, located in Saga City itself, is the ultimate destination for travelers looking to sample this pinnacle of Japanese beef. Here you can try the region’s beautifully marbled Saga beef steaks, prepared however you’d like! Savor the meat served in the much-loved yakiniku style, brought to your table’s hot plate for you to cook precisely to your taste. Alternatively, leave it to the experts and elect for a grilled steak cooked to order. Looking for more options? For a truly Japanese specialty, there’s also shabu-shabu style, where the meat along with assorted vegetables are lightly cooked at your table in a delicious broth that further brings out the savory flavors. Whichever you choose, you can be certain that your Kira steak will be sourced from the highest quality local farmers. Once you’ve tasted the finest in Japanese wagyu, you’re sure understand what puts Saga beef on the map.



Kira offers private rooms you can book to enjoy your Saga beef in peace and solitude. Inquiries and reservations can be made in English over the phone and English menus are available for both lunch and dinner. Kira is located just a 10-minute walk from Saga Station in the heart of this historic castle town.
