Hi Utsuri are like Showa in that they are a black skinned Koi, but Hi Utsuri only have one pattern, red. A good Hi Utsuri will have a nice balance between the red (hi) and black (sumi). When selecting a Hi Utsuri, look for a unique pattern. Also, look for any lighter black spots - these will become darker as the Koi ages.
Many of our customers (and their kids) describe the Hi Utsuri as the "tiger stripe koi". It's one of our personal favorites!

On a weekly basis (every Saturday) we update our inventory lists and quantities to reflect current stock. However, as we have shipments arriving from Japan as well as customers coming in and buying every day of the week, availability may vary. Once you contact us, we will check the availability and reserve your fish, otherwise these fish are on a first come, first serve basis. Also, please note that the Images on this page are intended only to give you a visual representation of what the breed generally looks like and are not pictures of the koi you are purchasing. we have way too many to choose from and updating these constantly is not realistic. I can send you actual pictures upon request but we encourage you to stop by to store to see in person (firstname.lastname@example.org).
