      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!

                  Brian, we now know who won Grand Champion and Reserve, what did the others win?

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

                      Momotaro?

                      Hi Brian

                      Being a Momotaro dealer, via Mike at Yume koi, can you tell us if Momotaro featured in the ranks through the show? Any notable fish that we might know?

                      Kind Regards

                          Brian,

                          Should we expect a future issue of KB with a coverage or the 05 All Japan?

                          It would be a very interesting to see all the behind the scenes. I'd like to see how they organize such a huge show. It's crazy enough with the English style shows here and they're a fraction of the size of the ALL Japan.

                          Also, maybe a coverage on a hobbyist getting ready and conditioning their entries for a major show, such as this one. This would be good to learn from.

                            The tank full of Shiro Utsuri must have a story behind it.

                              Hi Tom,

                              Actually no...always a bridesmaid, never a bride. I'm usually to be found behind the camera rather than in front of it. Lucky for you guys!
