The Showa koi must possess a black surface (called Sumi) covered with red to red-orange markings (Hi) and white (Shiroji) markings atop it. Showa can, at times, be confused with Sanke. The critical difference is that Sanke koi have white base skin with black spots that do not extend below the lateral line or onto the head, while Showa has black skin that appears through white and red markings.
A Tancho Showa koi has the characteristic red sun marking atop the head between the eyes, with white on the rest of the head and body. Sumi can exist anywhere, even within the red spot.
