Kobe beef steak - Tokyo's Aragawa is one of the city's most famous — and expensive — restaurants. A serving of steak costs $368, and the price reflects the origins of the meat. The beef, commonly called Kobe, comes from the Tajima-ushi breed of Wagyu cattle and is considered a delicacy. But big bucks alone won't get you in the door at this restaurant, as seating is reserved for exclusive clientele.
