It doesn't look like a koi or a shubunkin to me.

Looks like a common or a comet to me. It's a little hard to see the tail.

That is a common goldfish, also referred to as a Hibuna.

I can't tell if it is metallic or nacreous.  Does it have some scales that sparkle like sequins?  (I think I saw one.)  If so, it is nacreous and you can call it a sakura shubunkin.  Otherwise it is metallic and a comet.    Observe the comet and common tails here.  The tail of a hibuna has rounded lobes.  This fish has a widely forked tail with pointed lobes.  The color is beautiful.

Sharon, I don't see the pointed lobes. This picture here shows pretty round lobes, and what looks like a not very deep fork:

I agree with Sharon it looks like a comet but the picture angles make it difficult to tell if it is or if it is a common

See pages 11 and 15 here to see tail of a common.

 

Then look at the last picture the OP posted.

A side view of the tail fin is what is needed. When the fin is as straight as possible.
