Yamatoya and me
Pronounced "Yamato Ya" Mr. Sharaishi has some truly stunning gosanke. A showa which he produced was a top 5 competitor for Grand Champion in the 2008 Shinkokai All Japan show. This is a very high honor, and it also shows in the koi he produces that I've witnessed first hand. It was late in my travels so unfortunately have run low on funds, but rest assured, there's always next year.
