Koi: Taisho Sanke

Koi

Taisho Sanke

Taisho Sanke, or Sanke for short, are koi with a solid white base overlaid by patterns of both red and black. It is commonly said that a high quality Sanke pattern begins with a great Kohaku pattern, to which the black is a welcome complement.

During the early 1900’s, a new variety of koi was created by the addition of sumi (black) markings to the basic Kohaku patterns of red and white. This new variety was named Taisho Sanke and is also referred to as simply Sanke or Sanshoku. The positioning of the sumi accentuates the beauty of the overall pattern.

Whether the sumi pattern is bold and expressive or sparse and elegant, a deep lacquer-like black is most desirable.

 

Variations of Sanke include Doitsu Sanke, Maruten Sanke, Tancho Sanke, and Gin Rin Sanke.
