New Year 2015 celebration for the Japanese just over. I visited Niigata to select Tosai (one-year old), and some 2-year old with snow falling heavily throughout the 6 days I was there. It was quite an experience having snow falling almost the whole day and night and the almost all-white surroundings in the Niigata area.
Koi buying trip this time was made a lot harder given the weather factor. When these koi eventually got shipped in and purchased by delighted customers of Kohaku Koi House it is most satisfying for me.
Blue sky and white snow - what a view!
