Yes, it is a ginrin doitsu tancho kikusui according to my agent in Japan and I agree.

A doitsu Kohaku's pattern is lateral, and the Kikusui's pattern is dorsal and it is a metallic fish.

Some would say, how can you get a ginrin doitsu. This is a good example on a mirror type of ginrin doitsu koi.

Hi,

According to the Interpet Encyclopedia of Koi;

KIKUSUI:
Literally, "water crysanthemum", Basically a Doitsu Platinum Kohaku
(Hikarimoyo-mono) Platinum = Purachina.

According to Koi Appreciation "The First Step" by Kate McGill;
KIKUSUI:
" Chrysanthemum water" a metallic Doitsu Hariwake Ogon with the pattern running between the scale lines.

According to Koi Varieties by Nick Fletcher;
KIKUSUI:
Doitsu Platinum Koi with metallic Orange markings

According Volume 1 of Kokugyo;
KIKUSUI:( Kee coo' swee)
Doitsu Platinum Koi with Hi pattern, means " a Chrysanthemum in water", is the same as a Doitsu Hariwake with red markings or a Metallic Doitsu Kohaku.

According the Modern Nishikigoi by Takeo Kuroki;
The "Kikusui" are Doitsu Platinum Kohaku. "Sakura Ogon" and " Kinzukura"
are the Hikarimono of Kanoko Kuhaku and Goten-zakura, respectively. All the above belong to Kohaku lineage.

Well? Who is right and who is wrong?

There has always been a debate about this.

See JR's view taken from Koiphen which makes sense to me:

I do agree with Pieter.
It's the GinRin Tancho Kohaku Doitsu.
Love the red spot.
