    Just beautiful. I enjoyed his discussion about how differently the 2 showa's sumi developed in the mud vs the indoor pond. Great lesson in how radically different they can be even if they are of the same "quality" they can have such different development traits.
    What boggles my mind every time is to think about the number of $$$$$ each of those tubs of Koi represent. A pretty tremendous investment to achieve their goals.

    Gorgeous, Mark. Just gorgeous. I assume that the koi look much bigger in person because Oomo-san said that the sansai and yonsai were 70-73cm, which equates to approx 28-29 inches. I also learned a lot about how slow and gentle they handle these koi. Would love to have myself a mudpond like theirs any day.

    I think many Koi Kichii's aspire to have thier own mudponds.....but you'd be surprised what all is involved in preparation and maintenance of these facilities. It's NOT like instant breakfast.........you can't just add water.

    Excellent videos. This is what we all strive for, somewhat difficult in cement ponds. Makes me want to go back to Japan. Thanks for sharing.

    he forgot to tell them to "GROW BIG"
    guess they are already big


    every time i feed my koi i say "GROW BIG"
    even when we planted flower pots this past weekend "GROW BIG"
    just hoping that is the special secret on raising large koi "GROW BIG"

    That was the biggest one, the first Showa bowled, many were smaller, some just nisai of around 60cm.
