History Of Doitsu

Doitsugoi are koi that are not fully scaled and usually with a row of scales along each lateral line and the dorsal fin.

About 100 years ago, in 1904 Doitsugoi were imported from Germany. While Japanese carp were fully scaled, the carp from Germany had two scales.

The Doitsu were used as food because they had strong resistance against disease and very good growth rates.

Mr. Kichigoro Akiyama, a Koi breeder, observed the strong Doitsu and tried to cross it with Asagi, a variety representing Japanese koi. This began the development of the Doitsu Kohaku.

Now there are many varieties of Doitsu koi including Doitsu Showa, Doitsu Kohaku, Doitsu Sanke, and Doitsu Hariwake Butterfly.



  • DOITSU SHOWA: created by crossing Showa and Doitsu Koi, tends to have a tendency to change its patterns. However, when sumi or scarlet is deeply inserted into its shiny skin, it shows a glossy luster that cannot be seen on scaled Koi. Since the patterns are clearly and distinctly visible. Doitsu Showa is a very popular variety.
  • DOITSU SANKE: is a Doitsu species of Sanke, which has irregular marks and its colors can be seen clearly and vividly. Doitsu Sanke has an elegant and attractive appearance.
