Two weeks today , i will return to the mountains , of the Niigata region in Japan . Ill be there for two weeks , selecting new koi for the shop , and looking for customers requests. You can follow what i get up to , on this blog . We will also visit the Isawa region , to select from a few breeders there as well . By reading the blog , you can also get a quick preview , of the koi before they go on the website . On the trip , we are hoping to see at least one pond harvested , and i hope that will be the one at Maruhiro , that has 20 of our koi in , including this sanke !
