This specimen Three Step Kohaku is perfect for today’s koi discussion video. The three patterns of red on the back of the fish represent steps or islands. We discuss the Japanese words Sashi, Kiwa and sashimi (accidentally) while describing the different scale qualities of the fish. There is so much to learn from this show quality specimen as we discuss how judges measure and place fish during competitions. The Three Step Kohaku is always a crowd favorite in any koi pond across the world.
Our tutorial video series is designed to Educate, Inspire, and showcase the beauty, art, and history of Japanese koi. World Renowned Koi Expert Shawn McHenry offers us a very special insight to the discussions including behind the scenes stories from his trips to Japan to acquire rare and unusual fish for his clients. We gain the most incredible insight from Shawn's experience, his warm personality, and his ever changing collection of beautiful fish he brings in for sale.
