Another day another dollar, or should i say yen, but lets not get on about the exchange rate!!!!!!!!!!!! First off to sakai who has a fish house containg nisai tategoi as one of our party wanted a show quality tancho sanke, photos taken and it was off to nogami who although was not there we could walk around and have a look and our party defintley want to go back there. A few miles up the mountain and we are at kaneco, the home of the kujaku, and with roger with us was kaneco in for a hard time!!!! May be not, in his best pond we all admired the kujaku and even roger was impressed, one of our party bowled this kujaku, everything was right except the sex, we were shocked to find it was male, great body shape so they have reserved the koi for 24 hours.
Visits to miyatora and jimbei nice koi but not what we wanted, although we have to return to jimbei for couple of prices on the great sankes he had there. Across the road to tsuna and some great gin rin goshiki but we had to leave quick as we had an appointment with one of our agents friends. This proved to be great, bowling some fantatsic go sanke virtually all the group purchsed koi. 50cm plus gin rin showa, 50cm shiro and another showa all over 50cm, female and sansai. Just as we were leaving the breeder put in a very nice kin showa which i could not refuse, and we the bowled a sanke that someone had passed on the week before and that was just too good to leave, again both female and sansai.
As we were in mushigame and we had heard that yagenji had harevested it was round for ANOTHER visit. Well worth it as well as i found two very nice sankes and before i new it ron had a very clean gin rin beni goi in the bowl and said that makes a box doesnt it gary, he is learning and i finished a fish short .........lol. Then the cheeky wotsit decieded to make a box of his own with a very nice hariwake, gin rin showa and kindai showa. I think yagenji is now well and truly rons favourite breeder.
