Why do we Hold a Tosai Grow Out Event:

The main purpose is to learn more about tosai selection and share tosai grow out experiences. After a growing season, hobbyists will compare and share their growth and development against event siblings in next year’s show. It will be fun and educational for all.

It’s also a chance to purchase high quality jumbo tosai from a top breeder/pedigree line at a special discounted price.

Preparation for the Event:

We regularly follow renown breeder’s breeding programs and track their best production in any given year. Momotaro is "famed" for their Showa in recent years.

After much discussion with farm manager, Daisuke Maeda, he was kind enough to personally handpick 50 high quality jumbo Showa for our event. We are very fortunate to have a select few of these Manju Showa offspring in the United States.

96 CM Manju Showa

The Breeder:

The Momotaro koi farm has been making waves in the koi industry for breeding Showa in recent years. Without a doubt Momotaro is one of the top 5 Gosanke breeders in Japan. They have achieved the highest honors, winning grand champion at the AJKS and AJZNA multiple times. Noted characteristics of the Momotaro Showa are powerful body and jumbo size reaching 90cm+ in just 5-6 years. They possess deep red beni and snow white shiroji on shinny skin are an incredible sight. Today the biggest and best Showa breeders are using the Momotaro bloodline in their own breeding programs.

Event Jumbo Tosai Showa:

These Showa are descendants from the Mako bloodline from a 96cm mother Showa named Manju. She is a younger sister of Lion Queen which won grand champion twice in the 2013 & 2014 All Japan Koi Show. These j/t are being fed 6 times a day with the highest quality koi food so expect to see big changes in size and appearance at event time. We are expecting them to be around 12-14 inches at just 7 months old.

Event Operation:

The event is open to everyone. To ensure participants all get an equal chance, a lottery system will be used to distribute the koi.

We have allocated 50 jumbo tosai Showa for this year event. Tickets are now on sale for $450. You may purchase as many of the available tickets as you wish. Remember, only 50 tickets are sold so be sure to secure yours today.

Each koi comes with a numbered certificate. The actual event j/t is in the video link above. At the event the koi will be displayed in 5 tanks with numbered photos of each koi to allow up close examination and aid selection.

Tickets will be drawn in a lottery and your name will be called. You will then have few minutes to select your koi. We suggest you make a favorite’s list to help your selection process.

Note, early pick doesn't always equate a best fish. Last year’s Grand Champion from our 1st g.o event was among the last koi picked.

For those that wish to participate, but cannot attend, give us a list of koi you want in your favorite order. We will pick and ship your koi to you at a later date. Shipping cost is extra.

If any of the 50 koi available are unsold when the drawing is complete, they will be available for sale at the regular price of $600 . So as you can see that this event is an opportunity to save significant money. In addition to the fun and excitement of friendly competition and a chance to increase your koi knowledge.

Tickets are on sale NOW. Secure yours today to guarantee a spot

In Closing:

We appreciate everyone who helped make this event possible. Special thanks to Daisuke Maeda of Momotaro koi farm and to our judge Chai, but most of all, thank you to all the participants.

While this is a serious learning exercise, Genki Koi wishes to emphasize bringing hobbyists together to celebrate their passion while having fun. We hope for your support and participation in this fun and educational event. Please call or email us if you have any questions.
