History of Dream Ocean
The prefectural road, formerly known as route 37 and which joined Toba and Matsusaka, became the Sangu toll road in December 1953, which was the first toll road in Japan. This toll road is a total of 10.6 km in length and connects Kushida Bridge and Watarai Bridge.
Restaurant Dream Ocean is located along this historic toll road.
We were the first restaurant to serve Yakiniku Buffet, and have provided this popular and much loved buffet style for over 50 years. During your visit to Matsusaka, why not experience Dream Ocean’s Yakiniku Buffet for yourself and try some of our many Matsusaka Beef dishes.
We produce around 1500 Matsusaka Beef cattle per year, with over 800 of these used in our restaurant annually.
We produce, handle and sell more Matsusaka Beef than any other producer.
All our Matsusaka Beef is processed at abattoirs located within 15 minutes from our site to ensure all of our meat is fresh.
Seko Food produces over 1500 cattle per year, with over 800 used in our restaurant annually. All of our Matsusaka Beef cattle are managed at one location and we sell at least 2 cattle per day.
Our vast experience has given us the confidence to work with such large numbers of cattle. We record data from our cattle and this enables us to constantly move towards improving our breeding of Matsusaka Beef.
