Koi: Showa Sanshoku

Koi

Showa Sanshoku

Showa Sanshoku, more commonly known as Showa, are koi that display white and red/orange patterns over top of a black base color. Showa can be easily confused with Sanke. In Showa, the black patterns will wrap all the way around the body, instead of appearing only on the top half of the body. Also, Showa will have black patterns on the head, and Sanke will not. Typically if the first color on the head is black then it is most likely a Showa and not a Sanke.

The red, white and black should be balanced about the body evenly, with crisp, clean edges between each color.

The Showa Sanshoku , developed in the 1930’s, features white and red markings against a jet black base. The sumi (black) is the basis for appreciation of this variety, forming a strong background against which the white and red markings interweave in interesting patterns. Showa that have comparatively more white than black are called Kindai (modern) Showa.

Variations of Showa include Tancho Showa, Maruten Showa, Gin Rin Showa, Doitsu Showa and Kin Showa.
