Read Testimonials & Join us for Koi Buying Trips to Japan

I have been a koi enthusiast for years, and Kodama Koi Farm has consistently provided the highest quality koi fish I have ever seen. Their commitment to importing only the best from Niigata, Japan, and their meticulous quarantining procedures give me confidence in every purchase. The koi I bought last year are thriving and have become the centerpiece of my pond. I highly recommend Kodama Koi Farm for anyone looking to buy healthy and beautiful koi.

Sarah L

Kodama Koi Farm is a true gem in the koi community. The family-run operation combines traditional techniques from Niigata breeders with modern best practices to raise stunning koi fish. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and always ready to help with any questions about koi care. I’ve also purchased koi pond supplies and educational books from them, which have been invaluable in maintaining my pond. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my koi needs!

Michael T

As a first-time koi buyer, I was nervous about finding a reputable source. Kodama Koi Farm exceeded all my expectations. Their website is informative, and their staff guided me through the entire process, ensuring I selected the right koi for my pond. The fish are absolutely beautiful and healthy. I appreciate the care and dedication that goes into raising these living jewels. Kodama Koi Farm has earned a lifelong customer!
