Join Fall 2023 Niigata Tour!

Follow Taro Virtually or In-Person in Japan


Niigata harvest is just around the corner! Time to send in your requests.

Send us your requests for high quality Japanese koi you are searching for.

This year you have the opportunity to go with Taro and other koi lovers to select koi and see what really happens in the Niigata koi farms and if you can’t come to Japan, Taro will be your eyes during the whole Niigata Koi Tour. He will visit many koi farms and find your dream Koi.

Join Taro Kodama, on the koi hunt in Niigata Japan and buy from the best breeders in the world!


This year you can join us to visit historic farms as a welcomed guest in-person or online and see the most unique perspectives of Niigata. But most importantly, you can buy directly from the breeders in Japan!

Complete the form on step 3 below to request a seat on the tour and/or to send us the koi you want us to find for you on the adventure.

You can join us on the tour anytime from 10/12/23 to 10/16/23 or from 11/15/23 to 11/22/23. You can attend for any amount of time. I recommend 5 days, like Monday through Friday; but if you have a tight schedule, 2–3 days is also possible. Please inquire and reserve a seat ASAP. Seats on the van are very limited. It is on a first-come-first-served basis. I hope you will join us on this international koi buying adventure! To reserve your seat on the trip or get more information, please fill out the form below.

My koi-buying service includes the shipping arrangements and quarantine at the farm in Hawaii including KHV testing. Read more FAQs lower on this page or contact me to learn more.

If you have any questions, email or call (808) 354-7031.
