Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

Today I spent some time at Torazo picking a few more Tosai. It was my last visit at a Koi facility on this trip even though I don't leave for two more days. It is Saturday night at 10:30pm, as I write this, and I board a train Monday morning at 7am to head to the airport and come home. I am looking ...

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

Today was a travel day from Hiroshima back to Nagaoka. Tomorrow is my last appointment to buy Tosai. In the meantime I still have to post some of the Omosako Kujaku Tosai. The Beni and sheen on these is amazing.

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

Tomorrow I am heading back to Nagaoka to visit another breeder. I have been working for a week with my agent to get a shipping date as soon as possible because it starts to get too hot here very soon. We had already booked the shipping date and an estimated box, and weight, amount but at Omosako I h...

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

Don't worry, I did pick up some very nice Shiro Utsuri Tosai and Kujaku Tosai that I will post. I ended up buying a large group of Omosako Goshiki, I bought some last year and never got around to posting them, but is was almost 6pm when I got to those so there are not any pictures. I did pick up a f...

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

I now have to wonder how you will trust my opinion, and expertise, on selecting yong Koi when I go to Omosako and buy things like this. I think it is awesome...

You might fault me for some of the choices I make in variety but this Koi has an outstanding body and good skin.

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

Today I spent some time at Omosako Koi Farm. Over the years I have learned from Takayoshi Omosako about what is important in his Shiro Utsuri. He has taught me what he looks for when he selects his Tategoi. Mind you, what is left to pick through is not Tategoi, but the lessons are still valid. I pic...

While waiting I just kept staring at these doors as the Tosai were waiting on the other side.

Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Horishima/Minuma bound PSKoi Spring 2022

When I arrived Takahiro Litsuka, his brother and his son were moving Koi out of a greenhouse to another one so I had to wait a little while before starting...I was like being a child trying to sleep on Christmas eve.
