Yasaka Jinja is a Shinto Shrine on Shodoshima, Japan on the site where the emperor at the time (1300 years ago) made a decree to raise cattle due to its ideal climate. Today, the rare and exquisite Olive Wagyu are raised in this area.
Olive Wagyu is raised on a handful of farms in and around Shodoshima Island in Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa. Olive Wagyu brings everything you've come to love about Wagyu, but is far, far rarer and packs a more powerful umami flavor.

Olive Wagyu contain the highest levels of heart-healthy fats (oleic acid) which also boost umami flavor. Because of this, it won the "best" fat category of the Wagyu Olymics this past year.
Olive Wagyu is truly a remarkable beef.
