Teradomari had Tosai available but, the only problem was that, many of his Tategoi were in this pond. This meant many of these were not for sale.

Teradomari mentioned that he wanted to remove some of the Koi before I started picking and that it was mostly the Tancho and GR Showa. This video shows that he was serious about keeping all of the Tancho.

Russell Peters wrote:The thing I love about Hosokai Koi Farm is that he breeds many, many varieties of Koi and he is passionate about Koi. It is somewhere you can go and get just about anything. I left with these varieties today; Shusui, Asagi, Kikusui, Ochiba, GR Showa, Kujaku, Shiro, Ochiba Goshiki, Kage Shiro, Aka Matsuba, Showa, Kin Showa, Kosui, GR Shiro, Doistu Kin Showa and Goshiki Showa. There are not many of each as that is 16 varieties and I picked up 51 Tosai.


This is exactly why Hosokai is always the highlight of your trips for me =P~ I've grown to appreciate Gosanke more after seeing all the koi you come across, but the more unusual varieties hold a special place in my heart. I still have the two Ochiba Goshiki I purchased from you a few trips back, so I'm excited to see what offerings you have this time around as well.

I did not post the Hosokai and Terdomari Tosai yesterday as I wanted to try something new this trip. Normally, when I travel to Hiroshima, I have to return the rental car, go to the train station, take a train to Tokyo, then another train to Hamamatsucho, then the monorail to Haneda airport, the get on a plane, get another rental car in Hiroshima and drive to the hotel. This usually takes the most of the day so I decided to drive the rental car to Hiroshima instead. In order to do this I figured it would be best to not stay up all night posting pictures and answering questions. I made it to the hotel in Hiroshima by 3pm. It was not a bad drive at all.

I apologize for the posting delay but I am posting the Tosai tonight(my time).

Not a problem and now that you've shared the deets on the travel plan - makes a whole lot of sense to do it that way lol!

460 miles in 7 1/2 hours, with three stops, on a two lane road in Japan is about s good as it gets. The GPS told me it would take 10 hours.
