Boy do i remember those toilets and especially on the first night i think it was :shock: :roll: they have a large step to get into them and we had been our for dinner.....and perhaps the odd beer and i needed to go in the night like you do :roll: well its dark strange place and all that creeping round so i don't awake Bob getting his beauty sleep and bang in i go :lol: :lol: :lol:

I forgot about the step and opened the door and walked straight in....well feel straight in then i was half stuck in the bath with my feet stuck under the door that had closed on the backs of my legs :lol: :lol: to say i had a bit of a struggle and may of made the odd bang was an understatement...so much for creeping to the toilet :roll:

As Bob has pointed out some of these are great you just sit on them and some are even heated all nice and warm with buttons and knobs to play with...great fun but sometimes you could get the odd shock when you pushed or twisted the leaver the wrong way :shock: :D :lol:

Hi Guys,

Sorry i have not updates the Japan pages but we have been a bit busy :roll:

OK i don't think i have added them yet but a few of us bought some Tosai to grow on which will be in the country very shortly :D :D :D :D :D and here are mine.i wouldn't mind i went to japan and was defiantly not buying a Kohaku but defiantly a Sanke :D In the first week i think i had three Kohku and two Showa :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here are my little ones to grow on:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Now there was a lot to choose from which can be a bit mind blowing looking in a vat of a few hundred Go Sanke :shock: :roll:

Image

But luckily for me i had superstyln' Darren with me to help out :D

Image

This is the man himself the Breeder and a top guy :D

Hi Ed,

Lets hope at least one of them turns out nice :D i think they will be OK and only time will tell but the Kohaku are not bad just see how they come along in the new upgraded QT :D

They are all from Matsue and the man in the photo with me is Iitsuka Shoichi the breeder and they are known for there good Kohaku from the Sensuke bloodline and they are based in the Shimane Prefecture...hope i got all the spelling correct :D

Hi Sue,

I would imagine that Amir is flat out at work at the moment so Ill try to help :wink: We all bought from the same vat of Toasi some good some not so good :lol: i have them all here now as we picked the fish up with Mike & Darren at Heathrow last night :shock: well it ended in the morning this koi dealing stuff is hard work i can tell ya...i dint get to bed until 3.15am and was back out at 7am lucky i don't need to much beauty sleep :D

We have some pictures and will post them soon as Bob was on he camera nd was on the loading and moving of fish and although a long night it was great fun and thanks for the fish and hips Mike and to Darren for letting us help out with his shipment.

I have to say these two guys have got some stunning fish in this shipment as we have been lucky enough to see many of them and its a credit to them to be able to source such jems well done guys :D

OK a few pictures from Tuesday night for you


Here's Dazza and Gazza arriving - scary eh!
Image

This is the place we had to pick them up from and boy did we have to hang about. Slow or what, even slower than Mr Turtle!
Image

Just a few boxes of Koi and then some more arrived.
Image

Image

Image

Image

And they just about fitted into Darren and Mikes vans with a few boxes going into other customers cars
Image

The Koi all travelled very well and were extremely lively and in very good health. A few pictures of them for you here, being unpacked at A4Koi and put into the ponds there.

Oops

Sweet!
Image

Then it was off to Gazza's to unload our box of Tosai from Matsue. These also travelled well and were away into Gazza's growing on pond pretty quickly. Then it was home to bex at 3.35 - then the alarm went off at 6 LOL
