I imported a box of Yamazaki Ochiba's a few years ago and they all developed very well. I think the one Ernst bought is now well over 70cm and stunning.
I hope your brown pattern is strong enough. Looks like it might break a bit. You might end up with almost Soragoi?
The brown on an Ochiba does what the Hi on Kohaku does, and I would have chosen larger brown patterns.
Scalation looks good, and the bloodline is there. Good luck.
