Japan Spring 2019
Today was our last buying day here in japan. After breakfast we set off to visit Takakahashi koi farm which was about 45m drive from our hotel. We usually buy nissai showa from here, however there were some lovely nissai doitsu Kohaku and Beni Kumunyu at a good price. So we decided to pick some of these and also a beautiful showa. This took us up to lunch time,we made our way back to the Philippine resturant for a bite to eat. There was only one thing left i really needed to get and that was some HQ Jumbo tosai Showa and this year we was struggling to find any available. Sato our driver for the Day, then had a phone call from Izumiya saying that he will let us select Tosai showa he has available but we were leaving in the morning and he could only do this in a few days time. Sato our driver kindly suggested that he would go there and select the best showa for us, So we took him up on this offer and did not regret one bit. So thats the end of of our spring trip this year and can't wait for them to arrive back at the UK.

First place today was going back to Marukryu (Kyochan) and this time for some nissai and im very pleased with the outcome. After Marukryu it was a drive to Ikarashi Kazuto but unfortainly nobody was there, so we stoped at the shop for a lunch break and then it was time for our apointment with Isa Maruryo to select more tosai.

After breakfast we headed straight to Kawaguchi,which is where Murusho koi farm is located, I really enjoy visiting this breeder because we always get a warm welcome.He mainly breeds Koromo,goromo kujaku & kohaku, I managed to select some of is tosai. Then a short drive to Marusada koi farm which is where I picked a box of his tosai, that was the morning finished.
We had lunch at the Ramen restaurant. In the afternoon then
it was back to marusei to find a nice big benigoi for a customer
And we were very successful indeed finding a unique red
eye (Akame) female benigoi 83cm.
First stop was Marukyru koi farm and selected some of
his Tosai for the shop. We ended up with 13 pieces
of kohaku and Sanke. Then it was off to tanaka kazeharo
first thing a noticed here that the beni kikokuryu were good
so we selected a nice box of nissai. Also we picked out
some of his smaller tosai that were a nice interesting variety mix.
After a busy morning it was time for a bite to eat and then spent
the afternoon at Sakai yamamatsu and Maruhiro just looking
at there stocks.

We set off nice and early and arrived at Oofuchi for look
at nissai available. After having a good look I decided the
quality wasn’t enough to buy this time, so we moved on
to Marusei koi Farm. After a coffee I bowled up a nice
67cm Hi utsuri and 56cm char-utsuri (these are for a
customers order) so waiting to see if he wants them before
i purchase them. Then we moved on to select
some nissai/Sansai for the shop and in total I got 15
