Kinsuien Koi farm

1986. Kinsuien Koi farm – Uragara.

A tiny outlet which is only a very short walk from Torazo and right on the roadside.

Katsuyuki Kawakami breeds Showa plus several ‘one-off’ oddball ‘varieties’ which really defy any real identification – one of which he named as ‘Ginga’.

His water is always kept well and one always feels welcomed here although he comes over as a very private person who does not belong to any breeder’s association.

My first impressions – ‘the loner’.

Shortly after the 2004 earthquake, this outlet closed.
