Japan 2011 day 3

Postby ian m on Mon Apr 04, 2011 4:14 pm

The day started with an appointment at Shinoda to hand select some special tosai for growing on, these koi were approx. 15-20cms in length, amongst them were doitsu in many varieties along with gin rin and normal showa. 35 koi were selected from a few 100 that were in the tanks, 16 of these fish were offered for sale and 12 sold within the first few hours, needless to say one will be going in my growing on tank along with my show & grow Sekiguchi showa we will be selecting in a few weeks.

Next up was a visit to Hosakai where a number of varieties of koi were for sale, a particularly nice Ochiba was purchased here for Richdon stocks.

From there we headed into the mountains of Mushigame ended up fairly close to the top, some of the pictures below are from the Yagenji fish house.
