We started out the day at Ikarashi Koi Farm. Ikarashi Kazuto was know for very high quality, expensive Gosanke. He passed away a few years ago and his son took over the business. He decided to go an entirely different direction and breeds a lot of unusual Kawarimono. He also breeds Gosanke still so, even though I picked up a lot of Kawarimono, I did get some Kohaku, Sanke, Showa, Shiro Utsuri and GR Shiro Utsuri. He is some of what I picked up and I will post the rest in the sales section later.

We spent four hours at Ikarashi going through 3 tanks of Tosai. Our next breeder was Choguro and I am afraid this is the only picture I got. Last year I got a mix of Tosai from him and I asked for the same thing this time. He had not sorted them yet so I left him to pick them out and send them when they are ready.

We were not very far from Marusei and I had a request for two 'large' Kigoi. I didn't know what large meant so I picked out a couple of 80cm Kigoi.

I looked at a few grades of Tosai and settled on having Kanno pick a box for me out of one of the better grades.

I also hand selected a group out of one of his top grades. I picked 26 Goshiki and 1 Sanke. I will post all of them in the sales section but here are a few.
