We still have a sale on 5 ponds in the shop. These koi are up to half price, and are not on the website, so you must visit the shop. I will try and add some offers to our face book page Gatwick koi.

Today was the last day for our customers and they had all said they had finished buying so i decieded today was azukari day , this means to look after , or basically meaning to buy a koi and leave it in Japan in a mud pond for one year . So we started off going to Kase , now although he breeds doitsu and metallics , he also breeds showa from Sekiguchi brood stocks , in fact we have one now there that Rod Taylor has left in Japan for one year . When we arrived we viewed the nisai , including a new ochiba which he called a metalic ochiba ( not a kogani ochiba before you ask ) , they were quite nice and the doistu ones looked like lemon hariwakes with a great lustre . This breeder has so many wierd and wonderfull varietys its great just to look but i may select some next week when i will be looking for a lot of nisai .Eager to see the sansai showa to find somthing to leave in Japan , he had some very nice showa that were a little on the expensive side , and then Steve saw a very nice kindai showa ,the skin quality was excellant , i guessed this would be very expensive but was astounded when the breeder said the price , again Steve was adding to his growing collection of koi .Not bad for a bloke that had stopped buying !!!! The guy who works for Kase then said somthing and pointed to me , customers asakari he said in Japanese , he pulled a bambo cover back from another pond , and there was Rods showa .....................but if tell you all about that i wont be able to keep Rod in suspence untill Monday when he joins us in Japan ! Leaving Kase we went to see some temples on the way to Suda as they are very close . Here we stopped for some tourist bits and pictures , a very nice moment and very funny for reasons i am not going to say on here , in fact im going to change the subject completely !Suda was very disapointing as he hasnt harvested much more than a pond of nisai , they will start the larger koi next week so hoepfully a visit then will change that . As it was the customers last day i sugested that we could visit Dianichi and Hoshikins , Dianichi had some koi in , but again for some reason they hadnt done much harvesting , so we walked across the road to hoshikins , totally differant , there was a sea of red and white with some amazing kohaku swimming round , also a sea of customers waiting to be served ( and most of them english strangley enough ) so we decieded to come back later . With a trip to the 7/11 again for lunch and a visit to the dry goods shop , our little party finally admitted to being all koid out ! So we took a trip over two or three moutains for sceneary views and photos , coming down the mountains through a back road i diddnt know exisited we came out at Yagenji , what a coincednce so in we went . Once again looking at some more harvested koi , there seemed to ba alot of very resonably priced three year olds , four or five were bowled some returned and more added .Then it seems through a slight misunderstanding me and steve were buying the same Sanke , as most of you know my love is for kohaku and showa , so the fact that i liked this particuler sanke said alot for its quality , but my policy of customer first really can be a pain in the back side so no more fish for me stevo had himself a very nice sanke .That left me with a very nice showa with excellant skin quality with sumi way down so i decieded to leave that in Japan for one year .One hi showa that wasnt high grade but just had an awsome frame and was a very striking fish , another sanke which grows on me the more i look at it , and last but not least a massive gin rin yamabuki , all koi sansai , female , and around 60cm and some nearer to 65 . After this it was time to wonder down from Mushigame and head towards Nagayoka train station and say our farewell to Steve , Angie , Phil and Maggie . This week has been very enjoyable and the party were great and every one they met in the hotel enjoyed thier company , i think they had a great time as i know i have and will certainly miss having "mummy watson" watching over me , and making sure i eat drink and rest !!! . It was great to have some of the people who work so hard for koi club for so many years come out and complete the trip of a lifetime , i wish them a safe journey home . ....................photos as follows , Kindai showa from kase sansai , temples and scenary , Steves Yangeji sanke , Showa from Yagenji staying in Japan , Yagenji Sanke , Yagenji hi showa , gin rin yamabuki from them as well !
