INC-Isawa Nishikigoi Center

INC- Isawa Nishikigoi Center
When you go to Japan to visit a breeder you will usually go into a greenhouse that has concrete ponds. In the concrete ponds you have many wonderful Koi to choose from. Some of the breeders will actually allow you to net your own Koi. Some ask you to point to the Koi you would like to see and they will net them for you to view.
This is not the way things happen with Mr. Sakai at INC. Mr. Sakai keeps his Koi hidden all over Isawa and they are usually in very big concrete ponds. The ponds are so big that you have to seine the pond to get the Koi.So, the way it works is, you tell Mr. Sakai what you are looking for and the price range you are looking in. Once he has the information you get into a van and go to the concrete ponds. The following pictures show the process that follows. Mr. Sakai is in the water in these pictures.

Once the Koi are removed they are taken to another location where we can view them in a blue tub.

This is from last Fall, October 26th 2007 to be exact. These ponds are about a mile from his his house. It was the first time we had been to that location.

A little bit later an elderly couple came over to go Koi shopping. In the pictures your first see Toshi Sakai,Mr. Sakai's son, and then Mrs. Sakai helping them.

The excitement was all too much for Igarashi, Mrs. Sakai's brother-in-law, so he came over to help as well. Notice the pin on his jacket. It is the show pin from last years Las Vegas Koi Show.

That's an interesting process is it to help keep those areas from cross contamination.
At some point common sense must prevail.
