The Koi are now on their way to Tokyo Airport. This is always a very nervous time for us when the Koi are in transit. We always safe pack our Koi and do exactly what the Breeder suggests, which includes how many Koi to a box and how much water. We never go against what […]
These pages are updating with any Japan news and updates when we are away on buying trips in Japan.
We have an update on the shipping date of the Koi arriving with us at Quality Nishikigoi. We had to delay slightly, one because we were still selling Koi from Japan and the other reason is we had a power cut for a day last week. We didn’t want to bring in all the […]
We are finally finalising the shipping date. The delay is that we have still been selling Koi but have now drawn a line under it. So we will get everything sorted. We are looking to get the fish in the week commencing the 27th of November. The Koi will go straight into QT here at […]

Today after the Matsunosuke Harvest we had to go to Nagaoka Koi Show. A fantastic Kohaku bred by Marudo Koi Farm took the honours and she looked magnificent ! 82cms. After the show we had to go to Shintaro to confirm a purchase from the day before. We ended up bowling some more superb Nisai. […]
