Here we are 22 hours after setting off from home finally arriving at our hotel in Ojiya. Only had a few hours before it got dark so we flew round to see Hirasawa, koi of every variety and size all over the place but there was so many people there we will go back tommorrow, his sons koi are looking very good and we will be going back there as well. As time was moving on we popped in to see Miyatora, not many sansai but plenty of nisai in fact so much so I thought it would be rude not to pick a box. Nice variety: sanke, gin rin hi showa, tancho showa, tancho sakura ogon, tancho beni kikikoryu, beni kikikoryu, gin rin goshiki and matsuba ogon. This trip the idea is to look for higher quality go snake but just couldnt resist the variety. Individual photos to follow.
