    Aya?

    I saw a picture of a koi on http://www.genkikoi.com/Japan101905/

    It's in the midlle and looks like a ki shusui to me, but the ppicture is named Aya. Can anyone tell me if this is one and the same, or.......

    Perhaps he meant "Oya Yamanaka" ?

    Might be, but for every picture he first gives the name of the variety, than - and after that the breeders name????????

    Starting about a year ago Taro Kodama has had a few koi like this at Japan Koi Online auction and has called them aya wakaba, also bred by Yamanaka Oya. A crabby buddy always says "you can call them anything you want" but now Kevin has called it pretty much the same thing. If this is a newly developed koi type, continued interest, shown by dollars changing hands, would result in greater production numbers and more familiarity.

    Could someone help with a translation of the words "aya" and " wakaba?"

    Thanks Mickey

    Do you know if there is any relation with Ki shusui? And if not, from which varieties it is being bred.

    Can you give me a link to Taro Kodama's site?

    I recall reading about this new variety, but cannot remember where. I am thinking that it is developed from doitsu soragoi and midorigoi. However, I cannot locate anything to verify that. It is not a yellow shusui, but perhaps a muted similarity in colors?

    Kodama's site is japan koi online. If you look thru his koi types you'll see aya wakaba. Here are two pictures of aya wakaba from his site.

    Mike, you're probably right. On a german dealer site, I saw an aya wakaba describes as a "doitsu sorigoi with greener midori design".

    These ones sort of look like a cross between a ochiba and a shusui.

    Kodama lists one this week and says that Ayawakaba is a cross of Shusui and Midorigoi.
