Gosanke (Showa Sanshoku, Kohaku, Taisho Sanshoku)
Mr.Minoru Mano, their father, devoted his life establishing these lines: "Dainichi Kohaku," "Dainichi Sanke" and "Dainichi Showa."
Nishikigoi of Dainichi can complete a more prefect beautiful body conformation when it reaches more than 80cm(32").
Therefore, the secret of getting good Dainichi Koi is the get skinny, high quality 3 to 4 year old Nishikigoi.
The second characteristic is skin quality. Quality in the case of Kohaku means 'hi' quality and 'shiroji'(white backgrou The 'shiroji' is like the one of pottery. Also, Fukurin appears more.
Some may say that Fukurin can be found only in Ogon variety. But it is not true. Fukurin appears in Kohaku, Taisho Sanke and showa, too. For the beauty of Fukurin, Dainichi Koi is regarded as a top of Japanese Nishikigoi. nd)quality. On Koi of Dainichi, 'shiroji' is especially .
Fukurin is an Important Key Point to Tell Quality characterized.
Ogon will have very beautiful Fukurin when it becomes 80 to 85cm(32" to 34"). Fukurin is difficult to tell on 2 to 3 year old Koi. It will not be clear enough until Nishikigoi grow as big as 790 to 80cm(28" to 32").
More than 30 years ago, there were no Kohaku, Taisho Sanke, and Showa over 70cm; there were only the very large Asagi and Ogon. Then we noticed the beauty of Fukurin on these large varieties. This is how the word Fukurin came But now when Gosanke can grow as big as more than 70cm, they can have beautiful Fukurin like this Taisho Sanke in the picture. Ofcourse, not all the Nishikigoi can necessarily have Fukurin, which is regarded as very high quality. Fukurin will appear on "hi" plate as well. But in this case, it appears beautiful especially the 'shiroji'
A characteristic of Dainichi Sanke is this beautiful appearance of Fukurin.
Taisho Sanke in picture B is only 4 year lid and 65cm(26")long. Her skin is outstanding. But the Fukurin has not appeared yet. In old days, this was the biggest size they could get. This is why Fukurin was considered only for Asagi and Ogon. about. Because other varieties like Gosanke wore still small at that time, we could not see Fukurin on them. This is why there was some misunderstanding that "Fukurin' is the word only for Asagi and Ogon.
