Another show which took place today, just a small one, the Iwamagi Young Koi Show.
Iwamagi is the area that includes Izumiya, Mano Koi Farm, and indeed the original Dainichi premises. The show is held in the area between the Nokyo auction house and Mano Koi Farm.
You will find banners like this hanging at many events. Each one has the name of someone who has sponsored or donated to the event.

As mentioned Dainichi Koi Farm’s original Koi house and home falls within Iwamagi and you will always find Futoshi Mano and other members of the family at this small show. Below his wife Naoko and 2 of their children.
Iwamagi is part of Ojiya, and next Sunday 25th October Ojiya Koi Show will be held.
