    The harvest

    This is the best time of the year to come to Japan; not only to buy kois but to see the most amazing event of the year, the harvesting of the koi. There is just no describing how much excitement is envolved with it.

    lucky!

    did they catch that tancho that made the daring escape?

    why don't they put the kiddie pool inside the netted area?

    would love to go one of these days.

    What? They are just "livestock" being harvested from the growing pond.

    If it was yours (paid for) and you were present, then you might have a complaint.

    Hey Duc do have room for one more?

    Yes Duc! They went back and pulled one more time to catch the tancho kohaku, because there were 5 kois missing. They usually have to seign twice to catch most of the kois, depending on how many kois were missing. If all else fails they wait until the water is lower and come back to net the straglers at a later day.

    The reason the floating tub was not in the middle was because you have Bram and Tiebo from Koi Quest harvesting and they were worried they would step on some of the kois if they were in the middle of the nets.
