Arrived at Nagyoka at 2pm after a fairly uneventfull journey , well except me shaking a underarm deoderant and the ball flying out covering me , and two other passengers and numerous seats ! Oh well , were here and thats all that counts .Having only a few hours it was decieded to go straight to Yagenji and say hello . Some lovely koi , but nothing that really grabbed me , so i picked a nice box of koi for our new trade site . From there it was off to Nagashima where some options on a tategoi showa will be thought about over night , and a purchase of a sanke from momotaro blood line , Nagashima really rates these guys and has already bred thier blood line into his showas which are giving very good growth rates .Please ignore white bits on the leading beni as they are just foam .( see video on koi for sale section )
