I can see that really mate. Have to go one day but it'll be a while! Would love to come over with you guys and Mike for sure - looks like you had the best of a lot of things (including beer!). Still keep posting those pics though!

A few horror pictures for you now!!!!!

With the really fantastic quality of the Koi, you'd expect that everything was top notch wouldn't you? Well the Japanese dont seem to have discovered Health and Safety yet and some of the breeders premises were quite dangerous. There was a trip hazard around every corner, decking which was falling apart and of course the electrics.

Here's a series of photographs of some great electrical work. I wont name the breeders of course, but there are a number of them involved in these pictures.

This pump could be better wired up, still looking at the rust it's been like this for years!
Image

A nice tidy consumer unit, would you change a fuse in there?????
Image

What's a bit of rust got to do with anything????? It's still working of course. Just a little trip hazard that was laying on the concrete where we were walking!
Image

This extension lead is miles' from a pond full of very expensive Koi, isn't it!!!!!!!
Image

Cable jointing kit anyone?
Image

Who needs cable tray???????
Image

And lastly the best. Why bother with an extension lead at all, just get the two pins of the plug and bend them inside two pins from another plug, hey presto the cables are joined together!!!!!! This was also where we were walking.

Yes with all those lovely Koi swimming around and sometimes very close to the equipment we did have a gigle...and was very careful what we bumped into :D

Here are a few more random shots of Japan some as you will see when we was driving through the mountains :D
