With four days to go and most of the orders and shop stock found the pressure is a little less, it was felt that customers needed to return to torazo and again he had a fantastic range of koi, but we all loeved a little tategoi sanke, not cheap but very very high quality, a few prices on the sansai and it was off to izumiya. Although not there we just had to admire his yamabuki ogons and will return to buy some nisai ones later in the week. Travelling up to mushigame AGAIN to yagenji, where one of our party fell in love with a rather nice gin rin kohaku.

next a visit to a guy called seijiro who we used to buy tosai showa off many many years ago, he had great nisai showa and kohaku but the prices were all over the range so it was hard to see what was what. Visit to a few more breeders who were not in and then to a appoinment at hosakai where we purchsed this great nisai gin rin kohaku and showa, both female and sansai. Then a few more fish for our mate ron and i slipped a couple in his box, nice kujaku and ochiba.

Looking through the nisai we came across these, nice mixture for ron and a kujaku and ochiba for customers.
