The final day of the June hand pick trip takes us to Madan Koi.
Here we already know most of the koi which are going to be available for us to select, however we have been informed they have added more to the tanks.
Before we start the buying the farm is keen to show us there indoor growing facility. This year this facility has proven it's worth to the farm so much so they are expanding the operation.
With each tank containing thousands of koi at various stages of the life. There is a constant breeding cycle going on. The breeder can monitor his fish very careful and also experiment with more tricky varieties
As you can see it is already a huge operation set to double in size next season.
After this educational visit we trot down to the main facility to start the buying
First up we start with some some very strong coloured Goshiki and Goromo.
Next bowl of koi is these stunning blood red Kohaku.
Followed up by these beautiful Sankes.
The quality just keeps coming
It's nice to see some many high quality koi the tancho kujaku really stands out.
We then decided to have a look at some of the jumbo koi. These fish were huge all at 5 years of age the colours and body shape were unbeliveable.
These koi are as big as Aviv makes them look each fish measuring well above 28"
Then we came to this kohaku and kujaku.
Then we moved along and found something very special. This massive showa sanke and stunning Hi Utsuri.
