Fall Study Tategoi

6th Annual Konishi Study Tategoi Fest

What is the “Study Tategoi” program?

By; Konishi Karashi


There are many ways to study koi. A lot of videos and articles are available on the Internet. You can have knowledge on the koi variety, breeder, how they may develop, etc.; but you can never get the experience online.

In order to fully understand koi, nothing is better than raising them yourself in your own pond.  Only by raising these koi in your pond, can you see the color, quality, and how they will grow and develop their beauty. As a hobbyist, you want to get this experience with minimal investment.

Study Tategoi program offers this experience at an affordable price. At Study Tategoi program, we select the breeder of a group of fine quality tategoi (future koi). By offering them randomly picked, Kodama Koi Farm can keep the cost low for you; and you get to enjoy a high-demand bloodline with confidence in quality.

Study Tategoi from Konishi Koi Farm are back and better than ever! Along with a new selection of Ochibashigure, we are happy to offer Konishi popular, Karashi and Kujyaku. 

Konishi Karashi is the brand of the friendly, hungry and fast growing Koi, that every Koi hobbyist in the world would like to own. Because of their gentle and friendly personality, you can even hand feed them. Koninshi Karashi is not only friendly but also very high quality. They have grown more than 40 inches and won so many awards at All Japan Koi Show. Great chance to get friendly yet high quality pet in your pond.

Golden Corn Koi Are Back!

Taniguchi Koi Farm


Mr. Taniguchi is a gifted breeder from south of Japan. We do grow out contests with his Koi every year. So I am sure many of you may be familiar with the quality of his Kohaku and Sanke. He always surprises us with the quality of his Koi. This year, he did it again. This time, it is not Gosanke, but Kawarimono or unique Koi.

It is called "GOLDEN CORN." Please see the transformation pictures of his golden corn. The transformation is nothing but breathtaking. Being in the industry, I have pretty good idea how Koi may turn out as it grows. But the change of this variety is simply unpredictable. Unexpected transformation and unexpected growth (they have DNA of over 40" chagoi) are the highlight of Golden Corn.

I do not believe too many golden corn are available in the US yet .I am very happy that we can offer this surprising beauty.

Tamasaba Study Tategoi Goldfish!

Tamasaba goldfish are a rare ornamental goldfish from Japan and this batch is from Kaneko Koi Farm. They are hardy and can grow large for goldfish—up to 10 inches. Their bodies are round with arched backs and long, flowing tail fins; and they have solid red and white skin patterns.

They can live in the same pond as your koi! And they eat the same food, too. If you own koi already and want to add a new ornamental fish species easily, try a couple Tamasaba goldfishes.
