Shusui have been crossbred between Doitsu Koi and Asagi, and their points for appreciation, therefore, are basically the same as those for Asagi.
Shusui also have the tendency to show black spots in the head region as they grow big. Koi with spotless head region are valued highly, of course.
The arrangement of scales is also important. It is desirable that scales are visible only the back and the regions of lateral lines — no undesirable scales in any other place. Hi on the belly covering over the lateral lines are showy.
