|Scale Wrap. It is the cuticle of the
skin which appears as a line drawn in a ring around a
scale. This name was taken from the term Fuku (meaning
to "cover" or "wrap") and Rin (meaning "scale").
Fukurin is most noticeable in Hikarimono, and was originally
thought to occur only in metallic varieties because it
was harder to see in other varieties. Fukurin is now
also seen in large sized Kohaku and Taisho Sanshoku (Sanke).

|Bottom Hi. Hi on the belly and below
the lateral lines of Asagi and Shusui. Funazoko means
the bottom of ship. It is called this because it resembles
the red paint seen on the waterline of a steamship. It
is a point of appreciation for these varieties which
lack other strong colors.
