A couple of days ago we asked Masaru if his #1 Nisai Shiro Utsuri was for sale. All he said was “I will think about it”. We didn’t say another word as sometimes that is code for “not for sale”. On the drive back Masaru mentioned that he wanted to take us back to his private greenhouse to take a look at the Shiro. He gave me a price on it. It has the most amazing white skin I have ever seen and I have never seen Sumi so deep, dark black as this one. It was an honor to be able to see this Koi.
