With the news that the yen is getting worse by the day i think its safe to say we were struggling to find what we wanted at the right price, so it was back to those you know well. With that in mind it was back to oofuchi, and again he was happy to see us even though we had to wait for an hour for him to serve someone at a differant fish house. On with the koi, sansai sanke and kohaku that are around 55cm and will sell in the uk at £600-800. The first one bought was so clean and excellant skin soon everyone had koi in bowls. Two more kohaku swiftly bowled and again reasonable prices, then off to the better quality fish house where a small but very high grade sanke was purchased by one of our party, and three superb kohaku by another. After this by the time we got back to where the main breeders are it was time for lunch, then back towards mushigame and surrounding area. A quick stop at Takano and purchased another old style goshiki to go in the box with the monster we had bought earlier in the week. The rest of the afternoon was spent rushing around smaller breeders that our agent knows but gaain out of price or not good enough, but alot are getting ready to re harvest so lots of return calls on the card. Last stop of the day was another smaller unknown breeder but good quality and we purchased sansai and nisai hi utsuri, sorry the photos of the utsuri it was raining and I wanted me coffee..........................
