    But........tomorrow we get to see the best koi in the world. The judging is over. I can't wait to see how our entries did.

    I'm looking forward to see how some of their personal entrees in the show did!

    A koi kichi friend of mine entered one of his kohakus in the All japan Show one year, It was one of 24 and ended mid pack. As you stood there looking at the compeition, mid pack was nothing to be ashamed about. It's about the best of the best...so looking forward to hearing how they did

    I think Dick brings up a good point here. Being allowed to enter in this show means the Koi are among the best of the best.
