    Hi Jason,



    If you think like that, then you'll probably set yourself up for an evetual fall. There's crooks everywhere, and you always need to keep your wits about you no matter where you are. Thanks for your concern though.

    Jason,

    what a beautiful pond! Raising koi like Mark says is infectious! The last two years i have been actually breeding koi and it's a ball! The patterns change, what looks good at 2 inches is a dog at 4! last year i bred 6 couples and I hope to double that for this year. the mastukawabake's, and kumonryu were my best effort. my worst? Sankes! My newest efforts will include showa. Both wagoi and douitsu. I have secured a hosokai female narumi asagi and a male otsuka reverse. I intend to breed them and see what I come up with. I think the fun of it is learning the secrets of what to save and what to put down the road. Our two commercial breeders here in the USA told me on this board earlier this year you have to be passionate about the kind you breed, so I'm thinking I'll do well.

    thanks for sharing your photo!

    Ya that is bad news Brian.



    Maybe you should move out here to Niigata. Good living, less uber-urbia.

    Yeah Matt,



    I'd love to live in the countryside. People from the city and country in Japan are like night and day. Unfortunately, my daughters' school and my wife's wishes prevent me from from doing so. :cry:



    One thing's for sure, there certainly are plenty of parasites in the city.

    Any city.

    Try Miami or DC or LA, NY or..............
    It was either go back to the mountains of VA or get to the "country" here in Miami.
    Happy at last. Close to everything but far away too. (1 hour drive to Miami)
    Most of the people here are old...like me !
    Moving steadily out as the city moves in for the kill.
    Keep trying to convince your family. It took me 15 yearz ;-(
    THEY LOVE IT NOW !

    City boy

    I's born and raised in the city. San Antonio to Dallas, to Tokyo, back to Dallas, then off to the East Texas woods.

    Actually I lived in Tachikawa, still a very urban place not far from Tokyo.

    I loved living in the woods. but the people and places in the forest, at least the one in E. Texas, were lacking in civilization so I moved.

    Now I have both worlds, live in Liverpool, still in the woods. Work in Danbury and W. Columbia mostly, sometimes I have to go to Houston. Not far from any of these places to a mall, movie theatre, or even downtown, but still living and working mostly in a rural environment.

    I love living away from the city, but don't want to be too far away or lose the conveniences and culture the city has to offer.

    Of course that will be until I can afford to move to Port Aransas.

    QUOTE=Jason Poon]I'd bred several kinds of pet in my childhood and teens,

    however I's unable to breed koi coz the problem of space.

    Therefore having a koi pond became my first hope on my dream house.



    On the other hand,

    koi may release my stresses.



    How about u?

    To stay on topic, I'll leave the breeding to the masters...For me it looks too much work and dedication.
