The texture should be snow white
Hi should be uniform and dark. Clear edges are important.
The head Hi should not spread over the eye, jaws and cheeks. Hi should not cover the nose, either. A white part is necessary on the tail region. Symmetrical Hi pattern is desirable. Fins are not colored red.
Excellent Sankes do not have Sumi on their heads. A big Sumi marking on the shoulder is important. It is very attractive (Fig. 4-19)
A Sumi marking on white skin is called “Tsubo-Sumi” (Fig. 4-20) and that on a Hi patch is “Kasane-Sumi” (Fig 4-21). The Tsubo-Sumi markings are preferable. It is the best that these Tsubo-Sumi markings appear symmetrically. Roundish Sumimarkings look elegant. Sumi should not spread widely on the latter half of a body.
It is ideal that a fin has about three black stripes looks more elegant than that with many stripes.
