2009 Wakagoi Grand Champion 63 kohaku

This Kohaku bred by Sakai Hiroshima was a well deserved winner!

Young Champion 43 Utsurimono

This Shiro Utsuri entered by Koi San Europe, I'm guessing Omosako, took my eye!

Wakagoi (Young All Japan Show)

Morning All

Arrived in Tosu for the Wakagoi, Young All Japan Show late last night. After an 11 hour plane journey, then 5 hour on the bullet train, then another 7 hours on the bullet train tomorrow going back up to Niigata, is it worth it ?

You bet it is!

We are at the show all day today, then back up to Niigata in search of High Grade Tosai

We went out with our Japanese hosts for a traditional Japanese meal last night, very nice! We are at the show today so will be updating things later. Watch this space!

Ochiba from Kaneko

We purchased this koi back in March 2008 she was 25 cm, we left her in our mudpond to grow on, when harvested in Oct 2008 she was 60 cm.
Its always a little worrying when leaving koi to grow on as there's lots of risk involved, but one things for sure the learning experience of how the koi developes is very rewarding!

Below is a video of the Ochiba back in the UK

A Few Tancho's from Maruju!
