    sanke. it won best in size.

    the larger size competition was fierce. lots of large, high quality koi at this show. it is a preview to the All Japan.

    42nd Kanto-Koushin Chiku koi show (a district koi show by Shinkoukai) held this weekend at Ueno Park.

    I've never seen so many people at a koi show.

    Great location as it is next to busy JR and Tokyo Metro lines. There are museums, a zoo, restaurants, an amusement park, shopping....you name it, this place had it.

    will be putting the video together once i can free up some space on the iPhone....

    Have you moved to Japan?

    If yes, I am thinking it might be a good idea to update your Profile -> About Me -> Location.
