History of Shiro Utsuri
In Japan, koi shows usually are held indoors. Therefore, the sharp contrast of Shiro Utsuri’s white and black pattern made the koi look very attractive. That made the Shiro Utsuri variety very popular next to the Gosanke varieties. Shiro Utsuri, nevertheless had a large disadvantage. It doesn’t grow as large as the other koi. Therefore, it was very hard to win the awards at koi shows. Even if it became beautiful, its disadvantage was its size.
For a long time, Shiro Utsuri had never won a championship title. However, there is a breeder who was able to produce a large and beautiful Shiro Utsuri. That breeder is the Omosako koi farm. Omosako koi farm became the first breeder ever to produce a Shiro Utsuri over 40 inches in size.
When one half of the head is white and the other half is black the design is called Hachiware, or Menware which means the same thing. This is an ideal face pattern for Shiro Utsuri!
