    Excellent and very beautiful koi and some very good examples of what I had mentioned earlier about bold sumi its just striking, they truly are masters. 😁
    At some point common sense must prevail.

    Hi Sam, not sure when the trait of sumi on the white started and not sure if it is tied genetically to a bloodline.

    More from breeder selection than anything.

    It's been a while since I posted and there is much to catch up on. I'll see how many I can get in starting with my trip to visit Minuma Koi Farm in Saitama, just north of Tokyo.

    This farm is ran by two brothers, Kenichi and Riki Wada, specializing in Goshiki, ginrin Goshiki, some showa, Kohaku and sanke. The famed "floating beni" is evident as soon as you see the koi. Beni which seems a different quality and texture than any other.

    The kuro type is very appealing as is the more modern shiro look. The farm strives to produce clean beni and tondo so, searches other breeders for the best potential stock to combine with their own. They breed 6 pairs of Goshiki, 3-4 pairs of ginrin Goshiki and 1 each of sanke, Kohaku, showa, ginrin showa.

    Here is a video of some of the koi we looked at today.
