Sorry for the lack of updates over the last couple of days, but it has been hectic to say the very least!

On the 28th, I drove to Okayama, and we met up with Leo and John (Deshima Koi), whom I am taking around all areas of Japan until the 6th when the next party arrives.

Anyway, on the 29th, the four of us went to Momotaro, as Leo and John were in search of Koi. Then, that evening was the last evening for Darren, as he was returning to the UK the following morning. After that, I drove John and Leo to the next hotel, as we had an early appointment the following morning...

So, after taking Leo and John to a new breeder early on the 30th, we then headed off to Takigawa Koi Farm. They managed to get a few good Koi there, and were absolutely blown away by Takigawa's really special Koi, including a Showa that I sold as Nisai that has been left there through to Sansai. You can see a movie of her HERE. She was his 'Kashira' as Nisai, and is absolutely perfect in every way! She has a perfect body and head, beautiful skin, amazing colour quality, with perfect Sashi and Kiwa, and fantastic Sumi, that again has very good Sumi Kiwa, and no Jami (loose shimi Sumi)... fantastic!

Then, today (31st), we went to Omosako Koi Farm so that Leo and John could buy some Nisai for their customers.

Tomorrow morning, we hit the road again...
