    Some more pics:

    commentary starting with top left:

    Reigning GC owner Mr. Hayakawa ready to hand over the flag. To his right is renowned veterinarian Dr. Hasegawa, both from Chiba.

    Breeder of the current GC Showa, Gensuke Maruyama

    GC owner Mr. Komatsu being tossed in celebration. "Do-age"

    Gambare Niigata - "Hang in there Niigata" printed above the show stage sign.

    Mike Snaden apparently holding up one of the aluminum support beams.

    Takashi and Takahiro Omosako packing koi up for the return trip.

    Impressive shiro utsuri on display from Ogata Koi Farm

    Andrew Glazzard, Kantaro, and Adam Stryzik (sp) at the nijikai.

    Max from Singapore accepts a handshake from Mr. Hayakawa. Mike Snaden is obviously not all there.

    Brain,
    Could you or someone else explain the term "bu" for me?

    Hi Scott,

    bu = division/department

    85 bu = 85 cm division

    Brian are you in any of these pictures? If so can you point yourself out for me?

    Thanks for taking the time to post them. It sound like it was a great show with some great koi.

    Couple of KoiBito Brits that Brian has captured, I'm sure they wont mind being identified.

    Andrew Glazzard is in picture 8, he's the one on the left, either just dozed off, or trying to count his chins (sorry Andrew).

    Mike Snaden in picture 5 blue shirt and again in pic 9, now white shirt looking a bit worst for wear!.
    Regards, Bob

    That's a relief. I was afraid it was going to be another subdivision of the size of a tatami mat!

    Oh yeah Brian, what does it cost to enter something like the All-Japan?
