All 100 Koi were personally handpicked for this special event by Mr. Sekiguchi.
There are three price ranges based on the current evaluation and the potential of these Koi. Just because one koi is more expensive than the other does not mean it looks better on the day of judging and guarantees to win the contest. Koi is a long-term hobby.
We have seen many ugly ducklings grow to swans. Use your experience and instinct to get your best Koi.
Good luck!

IMPORTANT: Just because one koi is more expensive than the other does not mean it has a better chance to win the grow out contest. The evaluation given to these koi are for this moment in time only, we do not know how each koi will develop, we can only predict. Taro has years of experience but he is not perfect, so please do not buy a koi thinking it will win because it is more expensive.
