Narita Koi Farm have just released issue 5 of their e-mag 'Koi Navi'.
It features many events happening over the coming months, and the sale of many special Koi.
You can find the e-mag at either of the links below:
http://www.narita-koi.com/pdf/navi/005/all.pdf - for the PDF version
http://www.narita-koi.com/ebook/navi005/ebook-viewer/index.html - for the e-book version
Something tells me we may see a few of these Koi at the All Japan Koi Show in 2014.

A couple of weeks ago I booked my flight for this trip to Japan. Having booked my flight literally the very next thing I did was to visit the Dainichi Koi Farm website to get some information to finish the article about the 4th Auction which we covered in Nishikigoi Digest International - http://www.niigata-nishikigoi.com/node/344. My flight was booked to return on the 26th November, and Dainichi's website said they were having an auction 27th November.
Today decided that I'll change my flight and stay to attend the auction, very proud to have Dainichi Koi Farm and Futoshi Mano in particular as a supported of Nishikigoi Digest International.
If you haven't seen the Koi that are to be auctioned then check them out here - http://www.dainichikoifarm.com/auction201311/
Below a couple of Koi I'm sure we'll see again in the future.
Of course, full report will in Nishikigoi Digest International.

A little over a year ago I purchased 10 Showa from Shintaro, they were just 5 months old at the time, you can see them here - http://www.niigata-nishikigoi.com/node/1649.
I have pics of some of them from when they were just 2 months old after the second selection had taken place.
Today we bowled up all 10 for the last time, hereafter some will go to different places.
Here is a video of them.
A detailed write up on the 'dream team' will appear in issue 4 of Nishikigoi Digest International...... http://www.niigata-nishikigoi.com/node/344
