Dec 10 2012 14 CommentsFish in a bag, Japanese style Not some unidentifiable sea dweller dished up as a quick meal. No sickly goldfish destined to be dead by morning either. But rather some beautifully coloured and surprisingly blue-eyed koi.
I have a pond off my back patio. They could easily join the others there! Beautiful.
Yes, they really are. Never knew they had blue eyes either.
I’m glad I’m not a fish… or a bag…
Yes. Surprisingly though most of them seemed pretty content. Only a couple appeared to be struggling with their new, confined space.
hmm packed lunch sushi style! Just add rice and wasabi 😉
Very true! From what I’ve been told though, they don’t make for a tasty meal.
Oh no, this is not right.. But then, they’re so cute too, awww…
It was only for a short while, as they were for sale. I took the photo at a large koi fare. Some of them were huge beasts.
Puzzled why they are seemingly homeless, but they seem to be getting theirs heads about it ?
Not the sort of thing you can easily mislay or forget. I hope they are not coy being in the open like that :o>
That’s a shocker!
I probably should have explained, but it was a koi fare. A huge number of them were for sale. All different colours and sizes. The bigger (and quite possibly more expensive ones) were in temporary tanks. An interesting find for sure.
Yes. Lovely colours.

They look like they are conversing.
Haha, I hadn’t picked up on that, but yes, they do, don’t they? A doomed escape plot perhaps.
