The Yamamatsu Koi farm, also as Matsunosuke admits, has a history of 80 years. But only the today's owner, Toshiyuki Sakai, intensively operated the Koi chterei. Its father had let some Nishikigoi in the own rice fields swim only, which led then by the run of nature to the Vermehrung more selbiger.


After conclusion the junior High School busy itself Toshiyuki Sakai then seriously with the breed of beautiful Koi. It converted some rice fields to ponds and bred first Yamabuki Ogon and Aigoromo.
