 - Yamamatsu Koi Farm

Toshiyuki always used his father’s Matsunosuke bloodline, and he changed it for the better to produce some of the best Koi in the world. In the late 1970’s through the early 1990’s all you could see outside his facility was Mercedes, Rolls Royce’s and the like. Hobbyists at the time including prominent breeders of today such as Sakai Hiroshima and Momotaro were all trying to buy the best stocks from Toshiyuki.

The business name is ‘Yamamatsu’ but many people make the mistake of calling Yamamatsu Matsunosuke, which these days is frowned upon. Even though he uses Matsunosuke bloodline, he has tailored it to his own preferences, and there are now massive differences between Yamamatsu Koi and his brother Toshio’s Koi. They are totally different. He alone is one of the world’s top breeders, anyone who has seen his best Koi will know this.
