That is indeed both Goshiki's

Herewith the normal Wagoi version, all three from the same batch, 22 cm Tosai.

What variety are these? Goshiki-hiroi

Goshiki means five colours.

I don't like the normal Wagoi version when small, but after two to three years, they develop into stunning fish.

The Doitsu version is quite rare, and I seldom see one in South Africa.

It is pronounced Gosh-ki and not Gosh-Shi-Ki

From both the traditional Japanese and traditional Chinese writing.

Kujaku mean "Peacock".

AND

Goshiki mean "5 colors".

Further on the Goshiki subject, Goshiki's are a cross between Kohaku and Asagi, where the Asagi is the dominant (male)

You get two types of Goshiki apart from the Sanke Goshiki and Showa Goshiki.

1 Kuro Goshiki (Old style and becomes very black) The last Goshiki posted above is a Kuro Goshiki. The contrast between the almost black and the red is often very striking. They develop with time as the asagi pattern develops.

2 Modern or new style Goshiki. Often very much the same as Goromo. They are much lighter and are often overlooked as a lessor quality Kohaku, as the grey underneath the white gives the impression of poor shiroji. See one of mine on the right hand bottom corner of the following pic.

In this case, the sumi might also break through the red. At this stage it looks like Shimis on the red.

What variety are these? Goshiki-1

Sometimes, they look exactly like a Kohaku, and the Asagi pattern takes time to develop.

The five colours of Goshiki are black, red, white, blue and grey or silver.
