Masaru Saito of Shintaro Koi Farm Is coming to Michigan
The Michigan Koi & Pond Club (MKPC) is honored and excited to host a seminar with guest speaker Masaru Saito, the owner/breeder of Shintaro Koi Farm. The topic of this seminar will be the development of quality Koi and the process the breeder goes through to achieve the result he is looking for in his search for the most beautiful Koi.
The Shintaro Koi Farm is known for producing high quality Go-Sanke, particularly Sanke. Masaru Saito began to learn about the breeding of Koi from his father in 1968 and by working with other Koi breeders including Toshio Sakai. The following information on Shintaro Koi Farm was taken from an article written by Tim Waddington and published in KOI USA a few years ago. At the age of 15 he stayed with Konishi for a short time before moving on to Toshio Sakai at Isawa Nishikigoi Center where he worked for 15 years. He then started Shintaro Koi Farm in 1994. According to this article, many Japanese koi collectors started noticing Shintaro Koi in the early 2000’s including the biggest private collector in the world at that time, Kato san, who had more than 20,000 koi in his collection and it was said that his 2 best jumbo koi were Shintaro Sanke.
Mr. Saito is bringing 40 high class Gosanke tosai. Reserve your Ticket for a Koi at the cost of $250.00 each by calling Ray Alexander at 734-846-8588. Each ticket purchased entitles you to one koi. Ask Ray for more details.
