Japan 

This year will be the 36th year we have made purchasing trips to Japan, visiting in excess of 50 times. This has enabled us to establish strong relationships with many of Japan's top breeders. We are also members of the Shinkokai (Japan's koi Dealers Association) and have judged at koi shows in Japan, including the All Japan Koi Show in 2010. 
 
These close and long term links with the Japanese koi industry allow us to source high grade koi at competitive prices and also ensure the health status of the fish purchased. 
 
As usual we will be making purchases from the Niigatta region (the birthplace of koi) and also Yamanashi prefecture, home of Murayama, Sakuma and Matsunosuke Sakai. This year for the first time in a number of years we will also be visiting the southern regions of Japan including Hiroshima to visit a number of the areas famous breeders including Sakai, Takigawa and Omasako. 
If you have any special requests for koi that you would like us to source for you please let us know, we are able to send photos or videos of koi from Japan to give you more of a purchase direct from Japan experience. 
 
We occasionally have the opportunity to have customers accompany us on our Japan trips. If this is of interest to you either this year or in the future please contact us for more information. 
 
We thank you for your continued custom.
