Earlier in the month we previewed the Koi being auctioned on No1Koi.com, the online auction site of Narita Koi Farm, for entry into the 1st No.1 Koi Cup (http://nishikigoi.life/?s=no.1+koi+cup), an event which came off of the back of the cancellation of the Wakagoi and International Junior Koi Shows in Japan due to the corona virus situation.

On Sunday 26th April judging day took place at Narita Koi Farm.  Five Shinkokai judges had travelled to Narita Koi Farm, Futoshi Mano (Dainichi), Tomoyoshi Kondo, Takahiro IItsuka (Matsue), Nobuhiro Inoue (Beppu Fish Farm) and Takayoshi Omosako.

The Koi were judged in the groups in which they were originally divided for sale, not separated into size or variety groups.  In each group the judges were required to select one Koi to be awarded Diamond, Platinum, Gold and Silver prizes and then a number of bronze prizes depending on the total number of entries in the group.

Below you can find all the winning Koi.
