All Japan Koi Show 2020 random walk around.This is footage I actually forgot to include in the first All Japan Koi Show video. Sorry!
Anyway this is just a quick walk around at some of the Koi that didn't take major prizes, quite incredible really...many of these Koi would take GC in every country around the world, this is how high the level of quality is at the All Japan Koi Show.Some amazing Koi.
Enjoy the video.
New project! HRS Chelsea Flower Show! A history first!We are very proud to be involved with constructing a pond which will house Koi, from us at the Chelsea Flower Show!
This will be the first time in history that Koi will be displayed in the Grand Floral Pavilion! Thats the building where all the very best displays are, where the press do the filming and even the Queen walks through!
Our friends over at www.brookfieldplants.co.uk are the very best in producing Hosta plants and have won an incredible 7 consecutive Gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show, they are the best!
They will also have some Acers and Conifers surrounding the pond.
We are super excited for May, which is when it all takes place. The dates are the 19th to the 23rd of May, 2020.
Please try and make it down to see this happen for the very first time!
Beautiful Japanese style Koi Pond in the UK!#Koipond #pond #Koi
Apologies for the waterfall not working, there has been some pretty bad damage from the recent storms. Just a quick video as I was there anyway.
This a stunning garden and Koi Pond in the UK. The pond has been running almost 2 years now and is looking better each time I see it. We DID NOT build this system, a specialist Japanese garden design company in London did, so I really don't know many details.
We supplied all the Koi and have also fitted a heating system on the pond. We maintain the pond and Koi regularly.
The pond was designed and built by Michael Wheat ponds. Google search will bring him up. Top job.
PACKING AN 86CM KOI!!!!These Koi were bought by a client on a buying trip to Japan with us last October. A stunning Tancho Showa and massive Shintaro Kohaku!
Small Koi are pretty easy to pack and get ready for travel but jumbo Koi are a little different. The depth alone requires so much water to cover them.
These Koi gave little trouble and settled into their new home straight away.
We will do a video of the pond as soon as the covers come off, its a great pond!
Shintaro Koi Farm walkthrough! One of the best Breeders in the Mountains! HIGH CLASS KOI!!#koi #koicarp #japan

He is famous for Sanke but also produces some amazing Kohaku and Showa. Shintaro Koi Farm have Koi ranging from 4 inches all the way up to 92cm. He has some amazing Koi.
We have a lot of Koi at this farm which belong to clients and are being grown over in Japan. These will be harvested in October.

Kawakami who breeds dome excellent Koi and lots of variety.
Igarashi Kazuto, one of the most famous breeders in Japan, and some superb Koi!
Ikarashi Ohzumi which is a little drive from where we always are but worth the visit. His Tosai were excellent.
This time of year (Feb) is mainly looking for Tosai so we can supply dealers in the UK and USA with their Koi for the season. These 3 breeders are ideal! Some excellent Koi bought today!
Thanks for watching!
Today we visited 4 different Japanese Koi breeders! Check out how it is in Japan buying Koi!!#KOI
This is just a section from our day when we are on buying trips in Japan. We can easily see 10 breeders in a single day in Niigata. Today I videod 4 different breeders so you can see their facilities and the fish available in a typical February.
The breeders were...
All great breeders with very different Koi to offer. Its a good experience to see how these guys work...its no different to when you guys buy a Koi. The facilities are similar to many Koi dealers around the world. You look in a pond, you see a nice Koi, you ask a price...simple! (ISH)
Anyway, we will try and do a few more breeders, any breeders you want me to film, let me know!
Thanks for watching!
All Japan Koi Show 2020! *THE BEST KOI ON THE PLANET!!!*A short video of the All Japan Koi show 2020! The 51st All Japan Koi Show held at The Ryutsu Centre in Tokyo!
This year almost 2000 Koi were displayed at the Show, its incredible!
If you want to see the very best Koi in the world, then you have to come to the All Japan Koi Show once, it does not get ANY better than this.
Every variety, every size! Koi from 10cm to 110cm. Just amazing.
The winner this year was a Dainichi Kohaku, coming in at 93cm! She is beautiful!
Its impossible to video all the tanks at the show, it would be a 10hr video. I have done the major award winners and then a bit of a walk around. Some very special Koi.
If anyone wants to come to the 2021 Show, let me know!
New pond final part!! *NOT ALL GOES TO PLAN!!!*#koi #koipond #evolutionaqua #japanesekoi #koicarp
The last part of the 4000 gallon quarantine pond at Quality Nishikigoi. Its now finished! The gallonage is 3900 plus the filters and pipework. We will call it 4000 gallons!
Its been a great job to complete, even with the leak it looks fabulous now and we cannot wait to get Koi in there and see how the Evolution Aqua 36" Micro K1 bead filter works.
The flow rate in the pond is amazing, check out the swirl on it in the video. Koi should grow at some rate.
We will wait till next weekend and check the temps where the new Koi are and see if we can get some fish in ASAP. We do have some Koi which are at an ambient temp so we may add them and get it started.
We would like to thank everyone for watching this series. Its been amazing meeting so many new clients throughout these videos, we are still shocked.
We will be doing another video when the Koi go in. We will also be setting up the new EA Auto feeder and get that ready to use.
So a massive thank you and hope to meet many more of you this year at the shop. If you want to come down and see the new pond please do not hesitate.
Tim and Paul.
