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.
Hiroi Koi Farm is one of the most established breeders with 80 + years of history in Niigata, Japan.
Kazu and Nobu, the twin brothers says "they are very fascinated with the change Koi can make.
Koi change its body shape, color and pattern as they grow.
They have been famous for Doitsu Showa, Goshiki and Ginrin Goshiki.
What amazes us is that he always challenges new varieties and still produce high quality Koi.
Producing high level Koi at one variety is hard enough. The Hiroi twin brothers constantly add new varieties and seems easily breed such high quality ones.
