What is the “Study Tategoi” program?
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.
Dive into the Study Tategoi Program for 2023!
We're excited to offer these tosai (koi less than 1-year old) from famous breeders for 2023. This is a great way to affordably access many different varieties of koi all in one spot. Normally full-grown koi sell for high prices, but with the Study Tategoi program (where koi are randomly selected for you) you can affordably get young koi and watch them grow and develop in your pond.
Featured Koi Breeders
We're happy to share Taro Kodama's expertise below about these hard-working breeders. Enjoy!
ISA KOI FARM
I must say that Isa Koi Farm and Dainichi are the two most popular breeders in Japan.
Isa's Showa has many features to enjoy, but my favorite quality is their strong bodies. Even males can build such powerful shapes, just like the Kokugyo prize winner.

2021 All Niigata Breeders Koi Show Grand Champion
DAINICHI KOI FARM
In the Koi world, it is hard to find somebody who does not know the Dainichi name.
It is synonym of champion quality Koi. As a matter of fact, he won the grand champion at 2020 All Japan Koi Show, the world's no. 1 Koi show.
Because of the quality and the highest demand for the limited supply, we feel very fortunate to be able to obtain Dainichi Tosai and share them with you.
Dainichi are always the first to get sold out. So please do not wait 'till the last minute.

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.
Golden Corn Examples
OTSUKA KOI FARM
Mr. Yoshikazu Otsuka always have wide range of unique yet high quality varieties in stock such as Goshiki, Goshiki Sanke, Kage shiro Utsuri, Aka Matsuba, Shusui, Asagi etc..
Kage Shiro Utsuri among them is his specialty. In other words, no breeder in Japan breeds this unique variety. We are very fortunate to have them available for our study Tategoi program.
KONISHI KOI FARM
Konishi Koi Farm, Hiroshima founded in the era of Taisho (1912-1926) is one of the most established Koi breeders in Japan.
The current owner, Joji, is the third generation.
You would be surprised to see the grwoth and massive body of his Koi.
SUDA KOI FARM
Suda Koi Farm is 50+ year old Koi Farm. They are known as a breeder of Hirenaga butterfly, especially outside Japan.
"Breeding Hirenaga butterfly is not as easy as you think," he says. Many does not grow long, even, and smooth fins.
Suda became famous for Hirenaga because he has been able to produce ones with beautiful fins. No wonder why there are only a few breeders who can breed good Hirenaga butterfly.
KANNO KOI FARM
Mr. Kazuhiro Hirasawa is one of the young leaders among breeders in Niigata. Goshiki from Kanno Koi Farm are definitely of top quality and highly demanded.
The amazing beauty of Kanno's Goshiki that won the mature champion over Gosanke at the recent All Japan Koi Show is still refreshing!
The tosai available for this study tategoi is from an outstanding female parent. She is 85cm (or 34 inches). She had never been shown at koi shows, but she would definitely have won Best in Variety at the All Japan Koi Show for sure.
Mr. Hirasawa says, "Her body and the high quality and bright beni are the reasons why I picked her for my breeding." We are very fortunate to obtain the first generation siblings of this All Japan class Goshiki. Let's share the dream with Kanno Koi Farm.
Nogyosai Special Award Winner
SAKAZUME KOI FARM
Sakazume Koi Farm
Mr. Sakazume thinks Koi breeders must be an artist with breeding skills.
Mr. Sakazume definitely fits into the definition of the breeder. With his pride as an artist and the skill, he became a master of Aigoromo.
Aigoromo is a variety that has indigo on its Kohaku pattern. The contrast of its Ai (indigo) and the show white is beautiful.
As the production of Aigoromo itself is small and limited, I encourage you should not miss this great opportunity to get his world famous Aigoromo.
IZUMIYA KOI FARM
Izumiya Koi Farm is one breeder with a long history in Niigata. It is well-known that Mr. Ichiro Mano, the founder of Izumiya and grandfather of Ryu, was the top Mekiki (keen eye evaluator) of Koi and has dealt with many high qualtity Koi back then.
He is also well-known that Izumiya is synonymous with Ogon.
No breeder in Niigata can compete with Izumiya when it comes to Yamabuki Ogon. Their quality, body conformation, strong yellow shine, and Fukurin (net skin pattern)—every aspect of Izumiya Ogon is top quality.
We are very happy to share his Ogon tosai with you. Please experience and enjoy what his bloodline can do in your pond.
Learn more about Izumiya's Ogon with his koi talk video!
YAMAJYU KOI FARM
Ginrin Yuki Asagi
He is the creator of Ginrin Asagi. Decades ago when he realized how tough the competition was for Gosanke breeding, he decided to swing his farm's future into breeding unique varieties. Ginrin Asagi is one of them. Karasu is another. He is currently breaking the mold with a new variety of dark Kujyaku. Niigata has breeders just like Mr. Hoshino who are pushing forward the potential of Koi. That is what makes Niigata interesting. Breeders like Mr. Hoshino make Koi even more beautiful.
Few may know but Yamajyu Koi Farm is actually very famous for his Shusui.
His Shusui has constantly win at All Japan level Koi shows.
If you would like to raise a future prize winner of the Shusui, getting his bloodline is defintely the way to go
TORAZO KOI FARM
Torazo Urakawa Koi Farm, aka "TORAZO" is the synonym of high quality Kohaku.
We are very lucky this year to obtain a box of his quality Tategoi Kohaku from Torazo.
His Kohaku has not been available at Kodama. So please take this opportunity to get one or more.
Apple Mango Karashi
A new creation by the master Torazo. Marusei Koi Farm, a brother of Maruhiro Koi Farm, is known for his jumbo Koi. Torazo is known for his high quailty Kohaku. Mr. Kawakami attmpted to get the best of both. Enjoy his masterpiece of Apple Mango Karashi.
MARUSHIN KOI FARM
In fall 2022, I found an amazing Doitsu Showa at Marushin Koi Farm. It was one of the best I have ever seen.
The same Koi won "TSUBAKI" prize at the most recent All Japan Koi Show.
It is amazing that she has expressed such a refined design on the scaless body. I see Marushin Doitsu Showa is a rising variety in Koi world 2023
Marushin Koi Farm, while breeding Koi of course, breeds high quailty Tamasaba. Mr. Tanaka at Marushin Koi Farm is Dainichi in goldfish world. He wins champion for 7 consecutive years. He aims 10 consecutive victories. What we have available at this Study Tategoi is his champion bloodline of "Monstor Legend."
